1. REMOVE CABLES FROM YOUR BATTERY. 2. JACK YOUR CAR AND SET IT ON JACK STANDS 3. YOUR STARTER SITS ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE OIL FILTER. YOU WILL NEED A 12mm AND 14mm SOCKET AND TWO EXTENTIONS. 4. FIRST REMOVE THE UPPER BOLT OF THE STARTER. FOLLOW THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE AND YOU'LL SEE IT LOOKING FROM THE TOP LEFT SIDE OF THE ENGINE. YOU'LL NEED AN EXTENTION AND A 14mm SOCKET FOR THIS. WHILE YOU ARE HERE ALSO DISCONNECT THE GRAY PLASTIC CONNECTOR ON THE STARTER. 5.REMOVE THE BRACKET THAT MOUNTS TO THE INTAKE MANIFOLD AND THE ENGINE (SITS AT ABOUT 45 DEG). THIS BRACKET HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE STARTER BUT MAKES LIFE A LOT EASIER WHEN TAKING OUT THE STARTER. THESE ARE 12mm BOLTS THAT HOLD THE BRACKET IN PLACE. 6.NOW REMOVE THE POSITIVE CABLE (12mm) FROM THE STARTER. THIS IS THE AFT STUD ON THE SOLENOID. 7. REMOVE THE BOTTOM MOUNTING BOLT. (again 14mm bolt) 8. PULL OUT THE STARTER. (PRETTY EASY IF YOU HAVE THE CAR RAISED)

INSTALL IN REVERSE ORDER. HAVE FUN

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

The starter motor on a 2001 Sentra SE 2.0L is at the back of the engine bolted to the transmission just above the driveshaft.

Sometimes; if you operated the vehicle for some time with low voltage it could destroy your starter. Low voltage is the worst enemy of a starter motor.
