How to Change the Starter on a 1995 Toyota Camry

It is simple to change the starter on a 1995 Toyota Camry right at your own home utilizing a couple of common tools. Changing your Camry's starter will ideally take you nearly one hour to accomplish.

Disconnect the cable from your negative terminal for the battery.

On 1992-96 vehicles with cruise control, remove the battery.

Additionally on 1992-96 versions that have cruise control, remove the actuator cover and remove the electrical wiring harness. Remove the three main mounting bolts after which you can lift out the cruise control actuator. Remove the bracket from underneath the actuator and place it safely to the side of your immediate work area.

Peel the rubber boot away and remove the nut and then remove the negative battery cable from the magnetic switch terminal located on the starter. Disconnect the electrical connector also found on the magnetic switch. Always use care while doing this to avoid damaging the magnetic switch.

Hold your starter by hand and take out the two main mounting bolts. The starter is quite weighty which means you ought to use caution while removing it. Don't let your starter hang in place by an individual bolt due to the fact thread damage may happen.

Detach the starter from the transaxle.

To reinstall a new starter into your Camry position the starter motor in your transaxle and support it by one hand.

Install the 2 mounting bolts and then tighten them to 31 foot-lbs. with a torque wrench.

Connect the connector to the magnetic switch. Place the battery cable on the switch terminal and then mount the nut. Tighten the nut and put the rubberized boot on the cable.

Using the ignition switch, turn the starter over a few times and inspect for accurate performance. If the starter fails to turn over during testing you may have a damaged power wire or there may be damage to your Camry's flywheel gear.
