Go to There is a section on changing the starter, complete with photos. I changed mine (2000 Maxima) after reading the instructions and it took only 40-minutes. The only hard part is getting one of the starter bolts loose, but I did it using additional leverage from a metal, hollow broom stick.

You will have to remove the battery, the air intake assembly and air filter housing for access to the starter which goes into the flywheel on the transmission to the right of the motor when looking under hood from front of car. you will probably need a variety of extensions and a universal joint for your sockets will help reaching the mounting bolts easier.

I hear a grinding noise when I attempt to start my maxima

Sounds like the starter is not meshing with the flywheel. New starter or new ring gear- maybe both if it's been going on for a while. Good luck!!

How do you know for sure the starter is going bad in a 2000 maxima? What sound(s) will it make?

whne it makes a grinding noise it will be an indication it's going bad but it could be the fly wheel and woul have to look at the teeth to make sure that the flywheel is ok, if could be the bendix going bad but you can take it to a auto partsstore to have it teste and they cna give yo a better ideal and not costing anything.

sounds like your automatic transmission is failed and grinding itself up. How often have you had the transmission fluid changed? You are going to have to REPLACE the transmission and not even try to repair it. Once they start grinding things up , they are not repairable.
