I was able to do this whole job easily without crawling under the car. I did not even raise the front of the car. I did not need a helper to hold the starter, it just came out and I lifted it thru the top against the firewall. (had to remove a sensor or two and the whole air cleaner housing and air intake thing.) The nut holding the cable to the starter was 13mm not 12mm Make sure to place a drop light under the starter and use a mirror. It makes the job so much more enjoyable.

The starter motor itself is mounted on the back side of the engine with just two bolts, and it is in principle an easy replacement. The downside is that the bolts are not so easy to access, so patience and some good tools are important.

    You'll have to raise the front end of the car enough to work under it. Open the hood and
    disconnect the battery terminals from the battery. Go underneath the car and disconnect the cables from the old starter motor. One cable goes to a plug-in terminal (press down the retainer clip with a small screwdriver to remove, the other is fastened with a 12mm hex nut.

    Now you can remove the two bolts holding the starter motor in place (14mm hex). The bottom-most bolt is accessible from below the engine and faces the passenger side of the car. If the bolt seems hard to get to, cheer up...this is the easy one :-)

    The second bolt faces the DRIVER side of the car, and is accessible from under the hood. It's easy to find, but it is surrounded by a lot of cables and stuff that get in the way.
    I removed the air filter and used a socket wrench with a hinged handle to get the bolt started, finishing with a regular wrench.As the second bolt loosens, you should have someone else hold the starter motor in place, and catch it as it comes off.

    Getting the old starter motor out of the engine compartment is a bit of an obstacle course...I did it by moving away part of the plastic underbody cover on the passenger side. Replacement part goes back in the same way, Again, have someone hold the new starter motor in place while you reinstall the first bolt. Connect the cables to the starter motor terminal, replace anything (like the air filter) that you removed for the installation, reconnect the battery, and turn the key.

SOURCE: Removing the 100 amp fuse link in a 1994 toyota corolla

the fuse link is bolted in from the two side in the fusebox.you have to un bolt the whole fusebox so you can raise it and if you look at the sides there are two side panels that can be moved down so you can get a socket or spanner on the two bolts apprx 10mm. undo them and raise the fuse out and put the new one in and tighten up the bolts again. hope this helps.

Car wont turn


i presume what you are saying is you hear the starter engage but the motor doesn't turn over. get a boost and try starting the car. if it will not turn over then... have someone turn the key while another person taps the starter with a hammer. if it starts then you need to replace the starter.
