i'm almost certain its the same as changing a starter on a 93 tercel that i did a few days ago...VERY easy! well, it should be located under the intake manifold towards the back of the engine...there's just two bolts and a nut you have to loosen to get it off...the nut needs 10mm socket and i forgot but i think the two bolts are either the same or 12mm...take out the air filter first so you can remove the starter easier and you can see it better as well...looking at the new starter you boght to replace the old one helps as well, so you can see how the bolt pattern is and estimate where the bolts sre in the engine bay...what i did was: 1) disconnect the battery! or you'll get shocked! 2)jack up car and went underneath...there's a black rubber boot that is over a wire that is connected to the starter once you're under the car remove the boot so you can see the 10mm bolt and disconnect that 3)remove air filter assembly 4)find the two bigger bolts (i think they're 12mm but they could be 10mm) and unbolt those, look at new starter to guesstimate where they'd be...the bolt heads should be facing the driver's side 5)starter should come right off, then reverse the steps to put in new starter 6)reconnect battery terminals & your done!

Replacing a starter on a 1989 Toyota Corolla is not very difficult to do. The wires will need to be disconnected from the old starter and labeled or taped. The starter is held in place by two bolts, unscrew the bolts and remove the old starter. Then replace with the new starter.

Remove wiring remove the 2 bolts holding the starter to the engine,remove the starter,you might want to remove the air filterhousing and inlet hose.

Yes if the wheels are the same size. But make sure you are installing the correct size tires. Look on driver's door post for correct size.

Try to use Toyota speaker adapter plugs so you don't need to cut wires and mess the electric system up. You can get them from Ebay or Amazon.

I think the more important question is, why would you want to bother removing the radio from a 1989 tercel?

User Avatar

That's a dealer item. Otherwise, you'll need to get a used one from a wrecking yard.

If you are in one of the northern states I would use 5W-30. I use 10W-40 in mine and I live in the Mid-Atlantic

Solenoids are commonly mounted on the side of the starter. Many are integral to the starter and are difficult, if not impossible, to change or repair. FriPilot
