You take the bolts out of it.... replace with new starter and put the bolts back in

Although Chiltons shows the removal of the starter from the car, I can't find the location of the starter under the hood. I think it's quite a distance from the battery, but I'm unsure. Can someone help me - I'm a beginner.

Also, Chiltons refers to labeling the wires before removing the starter.... Is a wire directly connected to the battery from the starter? If yes, is it the positive or negative wire.

The starter for a 92 Nissan sentra is located above the oil filter. It is not hard to change out. Remove the air filter assbly. Reach down under the air intake mess and remove the first bolt 14mm. Secondly locate a big wire (yellow and black) on the front of the transaxle with a bolt going thru it. Remove that bolt. It goes through the cowling and screws into the top hole on the starter. Swing the starter up and turn and remove wire. 13 mm bolt. Reverse process to install. I used a Beck Arnley rebuilt part number 187-0387.

Yes, the solenoid is located on top of the starter motor.

There's no starter relay on the 1992 nisssan sentra, but there is a ignition relay which controls the starter and this should be located somewhere in the engine compartment where the relay box is

This vehicle (like most cars) has both a starter and an alternator. The alternator is driven by a serpentine belt, and the starter is located on the lower part of the engine at the transmission, where the teeth engage with the flywheel/flex plate. An alternator for the 1992 Sentra usually costs around $120-150, and a starter in the range of $90-120.

Just buy a rebuilt starter from Auto Zone. They're around $100.
