There are 2 long screws that holds the starter. Remove battery first before doing any work. Since the 4runner has a high clearance, I did not jack up the car but it would be easier if you have a ramp. Make sure you have the right tools to remove those 2 screws. Remove the positive and negative terminals first.

The replacement starter has to be the exact size as the old one. Don't buy from those auto parts chain for $180. Google around your area for car electrical shops that remanufactures those starters for only $45.

Took me 1.5 hours and only spent $45 for the starter.

The starter can be accessed from under the vehicle.Its just fitted on blts.Its not very difficult to replace starter.But the bolts are removed by special tool.Yu can get the tool from local auo part stores.Its easily available. Car no start problem is sometimes very difficult to confirm. You try all the possible things, but still you get no fault and problem is still the same.--------
In that case, you need to check few things individually.
Check the spark,the battery,the crank, the fuel and other most possible parts. Click this link below for more details:--

Land Rover Discovery TDi 1 - I hooked up the battery with the polarity reversed then I reconnected it the right way but the engine will not start, not even the starter.

It is possible you burned an inline fuse, starter selonoid.

Do yu get power for the accessories? If so, check the power ging to the starter and work backwards to resolve. Hope you did not fry the Control Module, check all your fuses!

do you have a remote starter on the truck? if you do try disconnecting it first to see if this solves the problem because it sounds like your security system is shorting out and the remote starter can sometimes cause this if not properly installed. also call Schram auto and truck parts they sell and specialize in only GM parts 1-800-292-1032
