We used a ratcheting flex-head stubby gearwrench (and contortionist maneuvers) to break free the nut then used fingers to hold the bolt still while using gearwrench to move the nut (may be painful and cause cramps).

Holy hell these engines are tight. I had the same prob with my 88. Finally figured it out with about a good foot and a half of ratchet extensions. It'll help if they have wobbles on the end. You'll have to guide the socket by feel (cause you can't see the bolt, but once you're on it the extentions should get your ratchet in a spot where you can give it a good 1/4 turn

best of luck!

How to replace front strut insert of toyota cressida model 91


Im not sure what car the instructions above are for, but it's not a Cressida. They dont have upper front control arms.

Anyways,

You remove the brake line, brake caliper, brake rotor. Then you remove the sway bar end link that attaches to the shock housing. Next remove the lower 2 shock bolts and the 3 upper mount bolts in the engine bay. Then you push down on the lower control arm so that you can remove the entire shock/spindle assembly.

Then take it to a shop to compress the spring to take it all apart.

After the starter is unbolted how do you get it down


if its a v-6 remove the RF tire, remove the 4 10mm bolts on the inner fender shield and the clips that secure the rubber shield. this will give you enough clearance to remove the starter. remove the front splash shield and you can see the starter on the passenger side of the engine. remove the small wire, remove the large wire with a 12mm socket on a long enough extension to reach it from the bottom of the veh. The rest is acedemic, a couple of bolts and a little twisting of the starter it will come out right through the wheel well.

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.

I need to remove my starter on my 98 Diamante but I can not see all mounting bolts and I need to know where the bolts are located.


Hi, I am assuming you know where starter is. If you have found bottom bolt #14 metric socket which to reach you "must" use a medium length extention and go into it right above manifold pipe to reach it. I found if you take the guard off the starter 3 small hex head screws, it is much easier to get at all bolts (2). Whats strange is the lower bolt on starter mounts from the front and the "TOP" bolt #14 has to be reached from the rear of starter. You can not see the top bolt from bottom or top, but if you use your hand and reach up aroung the back of starter you can feel it! It took 2 of us one reaching up from bottom with just #14 deep well socket (no extention) on the rachet and feeling where to place it with rachet facing up, and person over top of engine reaching down helping to align socket on bolt, then use a piece of pipe or ? From the top place pipe extension on end of rachet and bolt will easily.
break loose. Good Luck it sounds hard but is fairly easy with right tools. kasheyboy77
