Your second bolt on your paseo comes through the tranny and threads into the starter, It's really weird why they did that. The Tercels all mount through the starter.

How do you remove a starter motor from a toyota verso corolla


Hi,

Just did this the other day on my 1993 corolla (same engine, etc).

It helps to first get the replacement starter motor so that you have something to look at and see how it looks like, and where the mounting bolts fit.

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.

I am no mechanic, and it took me about 3 hours once I had everything I needed. Someone more competent could certainly do it faster.

Best regards.

Hi how do i get access to bolts to remove starter on a 97 voyager they seem to be behind the manifold & obscured by steering rack or am i not looking in right area? thanks mark hopkin


1. The Upper Bolt is easily accessed from the front of the vehicle going OVER the right side of the radiator. It is partially hidden by the exhaust manifold (front-to-back) and a black brace. There is a large gauge black ground wire going to where a nut(s) are located. This first nut will allow you to take off the ground connection, however the bolt has another nut further in (to the left) which is totally hidden. Remove the first nut.
2. After the first nut is off, remove the ground wire, then using a deep socket 15mm socket remove the second nut which is welded/attached to the bolt.
3. Go under the vehicle to remove the wires from the Starter. The first wire is the positive cable (should be red) attached on the solenoid portion of the starter. Remove the nut and lock washer and detach the wire. The second wire (single small gauge) goes to the solenoid and is connected using a slide lock - press release connection. It is difficult to see the slide lock and the press release located on the top side of the connection. Slide the red slide lock out and press the release, and pull out the connection straight out. Do not force it, or it may damage the connector. Note the placement of the bottom bolt position on the Starter. DO NOT remove the two (2) small, but long connector bolts on the wire connection end of the starter.
4. Remembering the noted postion: remove the lower 15mm bolt from the Starter. The bolt head is located on the back side of a plate moving towards the left side of the Van. It is easily accessed from underneath in front of the transmission. Near the end of removing this bolt, support the starter or it will fall out.
5. Remove the Starter, noting the position of the starter. There should be a separate starter facing plate. If if didn't come down with the starter check up in the starter to flywheel opening and remove the plate.
6. Installation is Reverse of above. The facing plate is a little tricky getting it to stay in place. By starting with the bottom bolt it is easier, Make sure you continuously support the Starter in position to save crossthreading the bolt or starter. Hand tighten only the bottom bolt as you want to be able to turn the starter slightly to get the top bolt in.
Starter Bolts are tigthen to 35 ft-lbs.

I'm trying to remove my starter on my 2005 pontaic sunfire. I have removed three bolts and cant seem to get the starter to budge. i've searched as much as I can see but I cant seem to see why this is still...


If all of the mounting bolts are definitly removed, then you'll want to make sure the batt (-) cable is disconnected, then either use your belts/pulleys or a socket on the Crankshaft main bolt to carefully rotate the motor (same rotation as normal) & listen for any binding & this should make sure the teeth on the flywheel/starter ring have disengaged from the starter teeth. With todays cars, tight fit is the standard & if the solenoid is holding the bendix forward as if starting, this should help to release it or loosen the bind. Hopefully you don't have a flywheel problem. If after rotating the engine, you can't get it loose, tap the end of the starter just a hair at an angle to loosen & then again from the oppsite angle to free up the starter from the mounting area. It does have to come out fairly straight due to the mounting flange but hopefully the taps will free it up if it is stuck.

Never a bad idea to look at the new part, or one at a parts store that is identical to better understand the exact fit.

Good Luck

Can't get the starter out of a 1991 Nissan pickup.


The second bolt is hidden way up and tucked in near the solenoid. You need to setup a ratchet with extensions/socket (14mm) combination that is just a little longer than the starter motor. If you just can't picture where the bolt is, then go down to the parts store and look at/purchase the replacement starter to see how it mounts up.
There are two bolts for the starter mount and one nut for the main starter power lead. There is one plug for the starter key switch.
Disconnect plug. Loosen lower bolt. Remover upper bolt. Remove lower bolt. Twist starter so you can remove main power cable nut (be sure to have disconnected the battery first!) Pull starter.

Wont start battery good altenator good,how to remove starter


The starter bolt actually goes through the motor mount so in order to remove the starter you must support the engine with and engine support or hoist. (some put a jack underneath the oil pan which is not an approved method but it works if that's all you have) Other than that you seem to have the rest under control.
