Question about 1987 Nissan Stanza
first of all you need to know what is the starter in order to remove it. if you can trace the big wire that comes from the positive wire of your battery to a big round thing at the bottom part of the engine. that round thing is the starter. before you start removing bolts, remove first that big wire from the positive terminal of the battery. it is normally bolted to the engine by three or two bolts. there are two wires that you need to remove first before removing the starter. a big wire from the battery and a small wire that controls the solenoid of the starter. after you remove the wire, remove the bolts that is holding the starter in place and the starter would drop down. the you can repalce it or repair it.
i hope i was able to solve your problem. please rate me.. tnx.
