Wiring of starter

WWhen looking at the starter you will notice the solinoid mouted on top of it, the solinoid has one ten mm stud sticking out the rear of it with a short cable running down to another short stud sticking out of the rear of the starter motor. Connect the main battery lead to the stud on the solinoid before you reconnect the battery

Where is the starter of toyota corolla 95 and how do i remove it?

Locate the battery. (right side front engine bay) look down and to the left. see that little cylinder with the fat wire going to it? that's the starter. Its in between the transmission front side, and the radiator. You should be able to see the long bolts going into it from the back side of the starter. First remove your battery and set it aside then open the plastic access cap to get to the terminal. Remove the wiring. once wires are free of starter, remove the long bolts. slide starter towards the right of the engine bay. It should be free now and in your hand, ready to be tested or replaced. To test it, get a second person to help. get a set of jumper cables. connect the negative side of the battery to the metal casing of the starter and connect the positive side of the jumper cable to the places where you removed the wires. Hook up the negative battery lead of the jumper to the negative battery terminal. Touch the positve lead to the positve terminal. Warn your buddy before doing this because the starter will try to twist as it spins up. If the starter spins, and you see the gear (throwout) push forward towards the tip, then starter is okay. Do this test, let me know what happens, and I can tell you what to check next.

How to remove starter motor

  • Disconnect the cable from the truck battery's negative terminal. Raise and secure the F150 on jack stands.
  • Disconnect the wiring from the starter motor solenoid. Remove the hex nut holding the cable to the B+ terminal and remove the cable. Do the same with the cable connected to the S terminal.
  • Disconnect the starter's ground cable from its lower mounting stud by removing its bolt, then remove the mounting fasteners attaching the starter motor to the engine. The starter has two or three bolts depending on the engine, with the lower bolt being a stud bolt. Remove the starter motor.

How to remove starter motor-Subaru Legacy

Finding/Replacing 1998 Legacy StarterTo find the starter on any car, follow the heavy lead from the positive terminal on the battery. A dedicated cable will connect to the starter.
The starter is at the back of the engine compartment, driver's side, accessible from the top.
Begin by unhooking the negative lead of the battery; the positive supply to the starter is unswitched and will be hot otherwise.
There are two main bolts holding the starter in place. Remove the positive cable from the lug by removing the nut and washer, and pull off the ignition switch lead (these are next to each other on the upper side). The ground cable is attached to a bracket that is held on by the upper attachment bolt. When you remove the upper bolt the cable and bracket will be free. Leave bracket attached to the ground strap.
The upper bolt is 14mm, the lower nut (which goes on a stud that stays in place) is 17mm. You will need several different size socket-wrench extensions (I used two 3" extensions on bottom and one on top) to get in a position to work. (It would, at minimum, take a lot of patience to do this with a wrench.) The order in which the bolt and nut are removed doesn't appear to be important.
The nut on the underside can't be seen from above, so must be done "blind." Look at the replacement starter to see where the nut will be, and what the shape of the casing is around it. Small hands are an advantage here.
There's not a lot of room to work, and it's hard to get enough leverage, so you will a small length of curved metal electrical conduit very handy as a cheater bar. (Real mechanics should get a chuckle out of that.) In replacing the bolts, they really should be torqued to specifications, but I used the "pretty tight plus a half turn" approach. Hard to imagine getting a torque wrench in there, unless you happen to have a power ratchet with a torque setting - in which case, you shouldn't need any advice.
As always, get both the bolt and the nut snugged up before the final tightening. It is not necessary to worry about the alignment of the part, which is accomplished by the stud and bolt. Replace the positive cable and the ignition lead.
Check and see if you've knocked any hoses off (there are several right in the way); The last step is to replace the negative battery cable. The running lights will begin to flash when the battery is reconnected. This is normal (some sort of anti-theft thing, I think) and will stop when a button on the keyless entry is pressed.
The job will take about 30 minutes if you are skilled, perhaps 90 minutes if you're at the "oil change" level of competence. If you can't put a washer and nut on by feel, then you might get stuck in the middle of the operation

Voltage drop test

First, check battery post to cable connection: positive meter lead on battery positive post, negaitve lead on battery's positive cable clamp. Crank the engine and note the reading. A good connection should have zero voltage drop. Second, check the positive cable: positve meter lead on positive battery clamp, negative lead on starter terminal connector. A good cable will show a voltage drop of .2 volts or less while cranking. Third, check the starter connection: positive meter lead on positive battery terminal on the solenoid, negative meter lead on actual starter stud. A good connection will have a voltage drop of near zero volts. Now to check the negative side of the circuit. Total drop on the ground side should be .3 volts or less and can be checked by placing positive meter lead on starter housing and negative meter lead on battery ground post. Take your reading while cranking the engine, and be sure your connection at the starter is solid and clean. If total voltage drop on this side of the circuit is excessive, complete testing at all connections in the same fashion as the positive side of the circuit. Check the following: between battery post and clamp (zero voltage drop), cable end at battery to cable end at engine. (.2 volts or less), cable end at engine to engine itself (near zero voltage drop), and finally between starter housing and engine block (.1 volts or less).
