Sure, no problem. this is the easiest way:

first remove the starter housing, usually only 3 or 4 bolts or screws. on the inside should be a large white or black wheel, hold the outer case with one hand and rotate the wheel counter-clockwise with the other as many times as can without force. on the inside of the wheel should be a small hole, rotate the wheel to line it up with rope guide hole on the outer case/housing. use a nail or small screwdriver to help hold in place. then feed the start rope through the 2 holes and tie a knot at the end, single or double depending on the size of the hole. if the end of the rope is frayed, use lighter to melt it a little and twist to a point to make it easier to handle. when reassembling you may need to jiggle the handle for realignment. it works on an inner spring coil tensioner system, so if the cable has no tension when rotated or doesn't recoil back, i suggest replacing the whole starter assembly because the coil spring is extremely difficult to replace by itself. thanks for using fixya.com. if you have any other qestions or need further assistance, just let me know and i'll be happy you. happy holidays

How can I replace starter pull cord?


Hi James:
Replacing any starter cord is usually a matter of removing the pull start assembly, pulling the cord until it is completely unwound, block the reel so it cannot retract, remove the old cord, (remember EXACTLY how it was connected), install a new cord, unblock the reel so it can retract, re-install the assembly.
It may be necessary to remove covers or engine shrouds to get to the pull start assembly. That's part of the fun of "do-it-yourself".

hi jerry396
you say you replaced the starter - do you mean starter solenoid or starter motor ?


if you run battery jump lead from bat + to s/motor terminal and connect neg jumper lead to engine earth and other end of neg jump lead to negative bat post with key on - will the engine crank over easily and start - if so your starter motor is good if not problem is elsewhere.

check your battery - it could be a faulty battery , and earths, also 12 must be present @ solenoid from the key switch in start mode and check that the solenoid has a good ground

check the starter solenoid as well - it could have burned contacts adding very high resistance to starter cable , also check your starter cable - for resistance - it should have no more than 0.3 or 0.4 ohms

make sure all interlocks are operating - ie clutch brake, cutter attachment , nuetral switch , seat switch ,

cheers hope it helps

The starter pullstring has come out


Hi and welcome to FixYa. This is not a simple cord replacement job. There are youtube videos on how to change the rewind starter cord. Use this search link: http://www.google.com/search?q=Starter%20rewind%20Cord%20change&rls=com.microsoft:en-ph&oe=UTF-8&startIndex=&startPage=1&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbo=u&tbs=vid:1&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wv

Or this one for just images:

http://www.google.com/images?q=Starter%20rewind%20Cord%20change&rls=com.microsoft:en-ph&oe=UTF-8&startIndex=&startPage=1&um=1&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&source=og&sa=N&tab=vi

The key is you have to pre-wind the spring before replacing the rope.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Starter cord won't rewind


The starter cord is spring loaded. When the spring breaks your cord won't rewind. Usually the whole starter cord assembly is easily replaced and readily available at your local gardening goods retailer. They might even install it for you for a nominal fee. I hope you find this solution helpful. Please rate it and thanks for using Fixya.

Positive cord from battery to starter


Methinks taht you have a bad starter. When you turn the key to "start", and you hear one click, that is def indicative of bad starter contacts, or the contacts are not coming together correctly. When you keep cycling the key, the contact plunger eventually moves, and then it will hit a "good spot" on the contacts, and then crankk. Aftermarket starters are notorious for this. Get a Toyota starter & install it, or take the starter to someone, and have them replace the contacts. This will def cure your issue. I do about 3-4 starters with this complaint a week here.

STARTER FOR 04 TOYOTA COROLLA


First, turn the key switch to LOCK. Disconnect the battery and wait a few minutes to make sure the airbag is disarmed. Remove the engine cover panels from below the engine. If you need more room, consider removing the air cleaner, upper radiator support, battery and tray and the coolant reservoir and hose.

Remove the starter wires then the starter. Pay attention to which bolt goes to which hole as they are different lengths. Putting it back together should be self explanatory. Good luck!

Please ask if you have any more questions. If this was helpful, please give me a good rating.
