Replace starter motor in daihatsu pyzar

1997 Daihatsu Pyzar starter motor located bottom of engine bay at the back between engine and framework below front window of car

Its in a real nasty place

(see picture)

Very tight space and to remove both starter motor bolts, you need to access it from above engine and below engine

- Disconnect battery connections from battery first

- Disconnect wire from starter motor

- Remove starter motor bolts

- Remove starter motor via top of engine (lots of jiggling involved due to wires in the way etc)

Good luck!!

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


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.

Replacing the starter motor in a 1996 miata


Depending on the version/edition of the MX-5, the starter motor would be on the rear end of the engine (passenger side) below the intake manifold. Initially, disconnect the battery/cable; next disconnect the start wire. Thereafter, remove the two (2) bolts for the intake manifold support bracket and remove the bracket. Remove one bolt on starter rear support bracket and the three (3) bellhousing flange bolts (two accessible from starter side while the other one is accessible from the bellhousing side). The starter is now free and may be taken out.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
