I have a buddy coming up form maple ridge today and has a bad starter so i told him we would replace it at my shop. sooo im asking the toyota guys what kind of job it is. It's a 94 3.0l auto. he said someone told him one of the motor mounts need's to be removed to get it off is this true??

wtf...... ok

is it a bad starter or is it just clicking...

usually from my experience it's just the 20buck's for the rebuild kit for it...

the 3.0's are pretty good aside from the contacts...

[iagree].....just pull it out and change the plunger and contacts...good as new....[51]

it is a pain in the ass if it has a body lift it makes it easyer , take off the front skid plate und you will have to use a realy long 3/8 extention and you can get at the sarter bolt from the front ,take off the tire and get ready to spend some time wiggling it out ,it is posable [cheers]

yea what they said, you can get the contacts from toyota dealership but usually you only need the one side. its easy to fix, but frusterating to remove and re-install. If you have a body lift over 2" you can just unbolt it and remove it from the wheel well.

re & re is fairly easy ...

in the passenger wheel well , there is a removable panel ..

makes removing the starter .. fairly easy :)

My pleasure
