    The starter that I a replacing only has one hole with a bolt. Where are these other one or two?

There are two bolts, one is at the top exactly opposite of the first one you took out. You will not be able to see it, but feel around the head of the starter where it goes into the block and you will feel where it goes.

There should be two or three bolts holding it in have a good look and feel around the starter to see if there are more bolts.

    You need to get underneath the car and have a good look.

    The top bolt is HARD to get to, tried, couldn't get it, my hands dont fit. I can get my finger on it but not sucessful getting the socket over it and not sure where the torque to get it off would have come from since there is no room to move the wrench. It's like you have to remove the radiator to get at it.

Remote starter only allows my starter to turn over twice; needs at least 3 with my key. How to adjust to have it starter run longer on remote?


I know you are looking to have the remote starter run a third time but I would say you need to look at your Fuel Pressure Regulator on the Scion. Sounds like it is not holding fuel pressure at the fuel rail and that is why it requires a third Crank

Instructions for replacing 2005 Scion xb water pump.


It's pretty straightforward EXCEPT you must loosen the engine mount and jack the engine up about an inch to get enough clearance to get it out/in because the engine is about 1/4" too far to the passenger side.

Can't get the pivot bolt on my '05 scion xb's alternator to break


undo the lock on the tensioner.for the other bolt,use what is known as a breaker bar,some oaf probably used an air gun to tighten the bolt,not a torque wrench. a breaker bar will give up to 300 lb feet of torque.

I had that issue with my scion xb. When I installed my audio system somehow the vibrations loosened the button wires clip . I removed the door panel and clicked it back in, also it could be a dead solenoid or disconnected door wire that goes from the 'noid to the door lock pin.

How do I install alt. belt on 2005 scion xb?


I just looked at my '04 xB. It looks very straight forward.
loosen the bolt that holds the alternator to the bracket.
carefully slide the alt to the bottom. (Also be aware of the plug and wires on the alt.They should never hold the weight of the alternator. You dont want them breaking prematurely.)
Pull the belt off, remove the belt from the crank shaft pulley.

Do the reverse, and you will have replaced the belt.

Make sure to check the belt in about a week or so.
New belts will stretch over time. Make sure you keep the tension tight enough to work correctly, but not so tight that the alernator shaft is warped.
I usually place the new belt on both pulleys and give a good "medium" pull on the alt while tightening. Find the middle of the belt and squeeze them together, depending on the type and length of the belt, there should be about 1/4" of flex on both sides.
