Terrano starter motor removal.

G'day. Anyone have any advice on the best way to access the starter motor! Need to do the bushes and never struck such an awkward thing to access. Makers have very small hands I reckon.

TD27 diesel! I found that the best way to get to the bottom bolt was from underneath. I removed the bottom engine / diff cover and used a very long extension and a ratchet. Top bolt, from above, not nice. The first time round can be tricky.

Thanks mate. Very awkward thing isn't it.

Yep. But, once you do one or two, then they aren't so bad any more.

Right size extension and power bar and rattle gun.

and it comes out the top sometimes its easier to remove wheel and little rubber flap to undo the batt supply ect if you have a rattle gun and as above for the rest

if you're having trouble with the starter motor, then don't even think about changing the oil filter, thats another of the take the wheel off and remove the rubber flaps jobbies, then grow another 200mm on each arm and another 3 fingers too

the oil filter is easy, get a /fabric/nylon strap an inch wide wind it around the oil filter twice with the left and hand keep the strap tight stick your foot on the tire and pull with the right, un winds right off, remove between body and chassi rail,

put new one on the same way then tighten again using strap but keeping tight with right pull with left

Yeah I've got to attack my Navara starter tomorrow as my one won't disengage.Im picking the solinoid is stuffed but going to check the switch before I resort to all the wonderful hints above.

NOTE 1 they are known for 1 loose bolts/bad earth 2 usual age/mileage and worn brushes.
No biggie

Me too but a quick look at the Nav starter position indicates that whilst you can get ya hands in there the tools will still foul the torsion bar etc.Also on mine the leads are on the block side of the starter so looks like it has to come out before the leads can be undone.Bolts all chewed so its been out before.

the td27 1s are easy, try doing the v6 1s!
