Put your finger on the hole where the one bolt was. Run it around the edge of the starter until you run into the other bolt. You might need to remove it be sense of touch...

I am replaceing the starter on a 1998 toyota corolla 1.8 ltr. How do I get to the top bolt on the starter to remove it ?


Hello,

To replace the starter of a 1998 toyota corolla, please follow the steps below:
  1. Remove the key from the ignition, and remove the battery, do not attempt this with the battery in car.
  2. Remove the battery and tray.
  3. Look to the rear of the engine, You'll see the top of the starter, loosen and remove the 14mm bolt/nut holding it down below,
  4. Drain the radiator and remove the lower radiator hose. This will let You squeeze the starter around the AC line,
  5. Then install the new starter, the one bolt You removed from the bottom, screw the last 14mm bolt on the starter into the transmission loosely,
  6. Go up top, reinstall the top bolt, tighten this firmly but not all the way,
  7. Go below, tighten the bottom bolt to final spec.
  8. Reattach all the wires, make sure the trigger wire is snapped in fully.
  9. Go up top, firmly firmly tighten to spec the top bolt,
  10. Reinstall everything You removed up top the below,
  11. Reinstall the battery and make sure the ignition is off while doing this,
  12. Hook up battery and ensure every thing that was loosened has been installed back on.
  13. Then You crank it to see if it will start.

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.
