I took mine out yesterday. I am not a professional mechanic, but I did remove my starter! Step One: Get tools needed for the job: Impact (no Need) swivel sockets 12mm/14mm Air Wrench (I only used this) Ratchet set w/ extensions -& reg. swivel -12mm/14mm short & deep Long flatnose Screwdriver 10mm/12mm/14mm Wrenches My Tool list took me a while to figure out what exactly to use. The first thing I did was remove the two bolts holding the starter W/ My Air Wrench, Extension, and 14mm Swivel Impact Socket (I tried using a regular swivel and regular socket on my impact and it broke). This is a delicate time consuming SOB. There may even be some times where a helper just manuevering the starter will come in handy. Also I didn't know this until the end "It may make it easier to go ahead and remove some of the brake lines. The two that are on the top portion of the frame next to the starter need to come out. One looks like a pigtail and I never took it all the Next I used the air wrench and a combination of 12mm socket extension and a regular swivel that are one- swivel Added info: I've changed starters on everything from Triumph Spitfires to 5 ton trucks in the Army and none were as difficult as replacing the starter on my 1996 Toyota Tacoma 4cyl (2.7L). This is the tightest location for starter I've ever encountered. You have to remove the clutch slave cylinder to get the thing out. You have to work with it and get the rotation just right to get the starter to be able to drop down. Good luck and be ready to have your patience tested but it IS POSSIBLE. ---I managed to remove mine without taking the clutch slave cylinder off or removing (or even bending) any brake lines. Although there is a bracket where the brake lines split into front and rear that if you take off, it will move JUST far enough to allow removal of the starter. Even then, it is still a very tight fit, but it WILL go through if you work it. In conclusion, I think Toyota built the whole truck around the starter, the way it is squeezed in there.

If you do it yourself, probably about $100 less than if you take it to Toyota. But if you have an authorized Toyota service do it, they will put on another Toyota starter which should last as long as this one did.

The thermostat is located behind the timing belt above the alternator when you look for it you will see a round shape above the alternator and you take off the two bolts on the cover that is round and your thermostat will be there

Take out the starter take take off the back lid and you will see the two clips inside that rub against the motor kind of like motor brushes. if they are worn replace them and you will have a new starter. you will hear a clicking noise when they are bad and you will not get your starter to start. Toyota starters do not go bad(quality product). Bedros
