At the right side of the vehicle under the battery there is the starter bolted by three screws you need to get under the vehicle to loose the screws use a 14mm socket and wrench to get the bolt loose it takes a bit of maneuvering to get it out of the tight space but it is possible and simply reverse to get the new one in remember to disconnect the battery and the lines to the starter before starting to work.

99 chevy malibu wont start,changed fuel pump,ignition switch,crankshaft sensor ,igniton control module,starter & it still will not turn over im at my witts end dont know what to do

Do you have power at the starter? Give the starter direct power, to see if it's turning over. If not, then you have some internal problem, was the car flooded?

Need to change the starter and cant get to the second bolt ....... dont know what to do next need some help

Kind of hard to explain with words. Try this, deep socket- 6 in.extension- ratchet. Put it next to starter (as if taking out the first bolt), then slide it up and over the starter. Sometimes you can't come in from the back.

Finding and changing the starter in a 2001 nissan altima

YOU dont want to change your starter motor untill you no for sure its your problem you must be 100% other wise you are throughing away money.....You dont say why you think it is the S/Motor but try jump starting the car with another car or battery and make sure you get the jumper leads correct..// Red lead to poss + term and then put Black to Neg terms- and try starting if it spins then the battery is faulty ..//if not and still no go then turn on head lights and try starting and if lights go out then its either battery or bad connection on either battery or feed wire on starter or black one on to engine earthlead not getting a good earth..
Or you could have a bad solinoid on the starter then its starter out but untill then try every thing else..
Let me know how you get on. Ron

You can try closing all the doors, then locking drivers door using the key...then unlock. Depending upon what system you have, this often works!

Hi there. I am going to assume that when you say it is cracked that you are refering tot he nose cone as being cracked. If that is the case, it generally means that it is not being shimmed when installed. When you get a replacement starter it will come will a flat metal looking bracket and it needs to be installed with that starter.
