Question about 1995 Nissan Altima

1995 Altima Starter Replacement

I located the starter under the vehicle to the left of the oil filter.

How hard is this component to replace on this model year? Looks like a pretty tight fit and access looks like a real bear from underneath. I know you can access the bolts to remove the starter by taking off the air intake/mass air flow sensor. My concern is access to get the new starter in place from underneath.

Anyone out there have any experience/words of wisdom they can share? I don't want to find myself stuck with the old starter in my driveway and not being able to get the new one in place.

Thanks

How to change starter, what all has to be removed?


Remove the plastic cover that covers the nose cone of the starter. Remove the wires from the starter. You may have to remove the oil filter. Remove the two bolts that hold the starter in place. Remove the starter.

Once you get under the vehicle it will all make sense.

Replace starter in 93 altima gxe. were the hell is it ? Do I have to jack the car up? How many Hours should it take?


You have to raise the vehicle. Depending on the engine type, the starter/solenoid assembly may be mounted above the transaxle, or below the intake manifold. If you don't have any problems, it shouldn't take more than an hour.

How do you access bolts to starter ?


You'll need to block the rear tires and jack the car front end up on a hard surface and set it on jack stands. Then you get to crawl under the vehicle.

Where is the starter located on a 1989 Mitsubishi Mighty Max



See Figure 1
The starter motor is located on either the lower right hand (passenger) or left hand (driver) side of the engine, bolted to the transmission housing with two mounting bolts.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Removal and installation of the starter motor will require access from both the top and bottom of the engine compartment.
0900c1528005438d.jpgFig. 1: Common starter location and installation-the starter is a fairly heavy component, be careful when lifting it out of the vehicle
  1. Apply the parking brake and block the rear wheels.
  2. Raise the front of the vehicle with a floor jack, using the proper frame positions.
  3. Support the vehicle on the frame or transmission crossmember, with jackstands. Before working under the vehicle, make sure the vehicle is stable on the jackstands. If it is not, reposition the jackstands so that it is.
  4. Label and disconnect all wiring connectors at the starter.
  5. Slowly loosen the two starter mounting bolts until they are loose enough to take out by hand. Since the starter motor is uncommonly heavy for its size, it is important to support it well with one hand, while removing the two mounting bolts with the other hand. If the starter is not adequately supported, it could fall causing injury. Remove the starter from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Clean the surfaces of the starter motor flange and the flywheel housing where the starter attaches.
  1. Reinstall the starter and install the retaining bolts. Tighten the bolts to 16-23 ft. lbs. (22-31 Nm).
  2. Connect the wiring to the starter, making sure the terminals and connectors are clean and tight.
  3. Lower the truck to the ground
  4. Connect the negative battery cable

How hard is it to replace the starter on a 1995 Altima?


well i dont think you would have to much of a problem with this one. you would have to access it from the bottem of car where you would have more room to work. you said you can access the mounting bolts. wheather from the top or bottem which ever is easier. only other thing is to disconnect the wiring harness. the new one will go in the same way the old one came out and just as easy. it may be a tight fit, but you can wiggle it around and line it up without hurting it. and to anwser your question about the access under the car here is a link with pictures of the under side of the car and starter. hope this info helps, comment back if you have a question. and trust me, its easier than it looks, if you dont mind getting dirty and have the patience :-)
