Depending on the vehicle, you would use a wrench SAE or Metric, to turn the nut down with to tighten. You may want to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.

either clean and tighten cable connections or get battery tested. if not the battery, it is the solenoid or the starter If it is clicking and not starting at first, but starts after a few tries, its your starter taking a dump. Replace it.

Remove the positive battery cable from your 1997 Toyota Corolla battery. Tighten the starter with the retaining bolts. Attach the cables to the front of the starter. Reattach the positive cable to the battery.

# Disconnect and isolate negative battery cable. # Raise and support vehicle. # Note: If equipped with 4WD and certain transmissions, a support bracket is used between front axle and side of transmission. Remove 2 support bracket bolts at transmission. Pry support bracket slightly to gain access to lower starter mounting bolt. # Remove one bolt and one nut if equipped with a manual transmission. # Move starter motor towards front of vehicle far enough for nose of starter pinion housing to clear housing. Always support starter motor during this process, do not let starter motor hang from wire harness. # Tilt nose downwards and lower starter motor far enough to access and remove nut that secures battery positive cable wire harness connector eyelet to solenoid battery terminal stud.

Follow the BIG RED positive wire from the battery strait to the starter. It should be in the Passengers Side between the engine and transmission. Starter Removal & Installation 1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. 2. Raise and safely support the vehicle. 3. Remove the starter terminal cover. 4. Remove the terminal nut and separate the battery starter cable from the starter motor. 5. Disconnect the solenoid (S) terminal connector, if equipped with a starter mounted solenoid. Ø To disconnect the hard-shell connector from the solenoid (S) terminal, grasp the plastic shell and pull off; do not pull on the wire. Pull straight off to prevent damage to the connector and (S) terminal. 6. Remove the starter motor retaining bolts. 7. Remove the starter motor from the vehicle. To Install: 8. Place the starter motor in position and install the starter motor retaining bolts. Tighten the bolts to 15-20 ft. lbs. (20-27 Nm). 9. Install the battery starter cable and a terminal nut to the starter motor. Tighten the terminal nuts to 79 inch lbs. (9 Nm). 10. Connect the solenoid (S) terminal connector, if equipped with a starter mounted solenoid. 11. Install the starter solenoid safety cap. If equipped. 12. Lower the vehicle. 13. Connect the negative battery cable. 14. Start the engine several times to check starter motor operation.
