Hello there I have the exact same problem. Here is what I read on another webpage... it seems correct to me after looking at my Pathy last night and being puzzled.

disconnect neg. battery terminal, remove wires from starter solenoid( starter located on rh side of engine as you are sitting in the driver seat, solenoid is smaller cylindrical metal and attached to starter.) remove starter mounting bolts 2-( 1 top and 1 bottom) Too bad it's not that easy. You have to then drain the oil to take off the oil filter, take off the exhaust manifold heat shield, and take out the oil pressure switch. Then, you can take out the starter by the passenger side engine mount. An alternate way of doing this would be to take it straight out after remove the bolt holding the engine wire chasis and stabilizer bar. This may take less patience, but it is more work so I wouldn't recommend it.

Where is the starter located on a 1990 Nissan Pathfinder FWD

The starter is located at the rear of the engine on the bottom left, There are 2 bolts and wires bolted on, remove the battery cable off the battery before going after the starter, that way way you don't short it out removing the wires in a tight spot. The starter is heavy and bulky, don't let it drop, hope this helps.

Auto transmission pathfinder

It is hard to get to them, some people make wrenches out of old wrenches that fit in tiny places, etc, but if you have a book, and you should, if you got this far, there is a spot to access these bolts from, one at a time, either up on the right or by removing the starter. Don't strip them, and don't let the torque converter fall out when you pull the tranny. (if it is auto) You will have oil all over the place. You might have to pull a few spark plugs to take the compression off the engine so it will spin easier.

How to change a starter motor 92 nissan pathfinder

  • Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  • Remove the splash gaurd.
  • It has to be removed from underneath the car so jacking up the front end is a good idea as it gives you more room to work.
  • It's located on the passenger side, right next to the catalytic converter.
  • You need to disconnect the plug and bolted on lead going to the starter. Just squeeze the plug and wiggle it out.
  • You will see how it locks onto the starter.
  • The other lead is just a nut. Now take out the two bolts holding the starter on.
  • The top bolt is easy.
  • The bottom bolt has a transmission line running right over top of it and you have to use a wrench making quarter turns to loosen it.
  • It's tight but the starter will slide out between the catalytic converter and the front differential.
