Nissan Maxima Starter removal

Replace starter on Nissan Maxima

The procedure for 1993-98 Nissan Maxima.

Starter removal :-----

Maximas use a gear reduction starter which has a set of ratio reduction gears; the brushes on the gear reduction starter are located on a plate behind the starter drive housing. The extra gears make the starter pinion gear turn at about 1 / 2 the speed of the starter, giving the starter twice the turning power of a conventional starter.

The easiest way to test the performance of the starter is to perform a voltage drop test.
The battery must be in good condition and fully charged prior to performing this test.
