First thing you want to do is remove the positive battery terminal this will keep the starter wire from having current and possibly starting a fire from touching onto anything metal. second thing is to locate the starter (it is usually on the right side of the transmission housing beside the block and under the intake or plenum.remove the positive wire and plug if equipped. next find the appropriate wrench size and remove the bolts that hold the starter to the transmission.pull the starter out and replace it with a new one. reverse the procedure and there you go.don't forget to connect the positive wire back to the starter and battery.
starter first then battery.
good luck and have fun.

Starter makes grinding noise when starting car. Sometimes it does no engage to start the car. Have replaced the started twice in the last year on my 1996 Nissan Sentra GXE Auto Trans.

check the condition of the teeth on the ring gear of the engine. They can become burred and cause improper engagement of the starter pinion. Check the adjustment of the pinion action.

What could be causing the starters to go bad on my 2001 nissan sentra 2.0. this is my third on that i put on/

Depending on why you're replacing so many - if it's a grinding issue, bad flywheel. If it's just drawing power - a bad or undersized battery or bad cables will cause starters to go bad. Too small a battery or bad cables create resistance and starter has to work twice as hard.

Change rear bearing on a 2001 Nissan Sentra

Most newer cars have a bearing that is pressed in to the hub. In order to do the repair you should have to replace the entire hub. This is actually easier and cleaner because the bearings are lubed, sealed and pressed in the hub. They usually cost around $30 and should be available through your local parts store. In most cases the hub is held on by a large nut so I recommend that you make sure you have a socket that is large enough.
