Changing a starter on 1995 Altima

Hello,

I suspect I have a bad starter because there is no crank when turning the keys. I am planning to take out the starter and getting it tested at my local Autozone.

Has anyone ever taken out the starter on an automatic Altima? Any tips or complications along the way? This will be my first time so if anyone has a write up, that would be very appreciated! Thanks all!

My advice would be to not buy from Autozone/Advance....finding reliable, quality electrical parts for imports is difficult enough...I bought a new starter for the same price as a reman at O'Reilly's and still needed a second right away.

I did my '93 auto by myself so it's possible...

jserrano, thank you for the link. It has provided a lot of info. I feel more confident of tackling this project now.

niceguy, thank you for the advice. However, this car has about 195,000 miles on it. I'm only hoping to run this car for about one more year....or two. What do you think in a situation like mine?

I'd say the difference in price (not much IIRC) isn't worth the hassle of having to go through changing the starter a few times or more..and that's just in the immediate future...up to you...I will say that I have an Autozone distributor that I've had on the Altima for over 4 years now and no issues that I'm aware of...

I bought a remanufactured one (Autolight) from advance auto parts and broke the first week. I then exchanged it for a rebuilt one and has been working great since.
