I replaced the starter in my daughter’s little 1996 Sentra this afternoon…..and it was kind of a pain in the rear….but….do-able.
If you read the service manual, it will say something like….”disconnect the negative battery terminal, remove the bracket at the manifold, remove the large lead going to the body of the starter, remove the connection at the solenoid….disconnect the two bolts and remove the starter from the vehicle.”
‘Installation is the reverse of the previous process.”
How simple is that?
It’s kind of somewhere between hard and really hard.
That’s a place that becomes normal if you work on your own cars with any necessity or frequency.
You get used to discomfort.
It makes you appreciate what people who do mechanicing for a living go through.
Anyway…the car starts with some consistency again…and that’s good.
When am I going to get old enough that I don’t worry about paying someone a lot of money to do something that I know I can figure out for myself?
How dead will I be before I decide that it’s time to stop trying?
I’m glad her car runs again.
