What do I need to take out to get access to the starer I need yo do it from the top or from the bottom is very hard to get access from the bottom? Any clue ? Please ?

I do this from the top and use a long extension through and behind the manifold

 

I have a wobbly extension so the rear bolt is a little easier to get with that. You can do almost the same thing if you stack several short extensions together

Whaooo you are genious how you that?? I can't even see the starer from the top???? Hehehe

Have you removed the plastic engine cover?

 

Look along the valve cover to the passenger side where the transmission and engine meet. The starter is just above the centerline of the engine.

Maybe a picture will help

 

This requires 1.9 hours to replace so it is not easy

thank you so much george you are the best , im goint to try with out taking the manifold out but in case i cant thank for the procedure ok, how much i can save if i do it myself? i will accept your answer now thank you so much keep in touch ok. gbu

If you do it your self it will save about $200. I'm sure you will have no problem just go ahead and remove the manifold then change the starter. It is much easier for you that way.

do i have to replace the gsaket ? or i cant put the same one

NO the gasket is an O ring type so it does not have to be replaced it fits in grooves in the manifold so it will stay in place.

hi george thank God i did it brother, i installed the starer everything came out perfect ,car starter with out any problem but now for some reason the hood wont close? any clue ? i just took out the 3 NUT from that piace and now the hood wont close ?

Look for the witness marks from where the cross member was before and hold it in exactly that place as you tighten the nuts. This should get the hood latch back where it was and the hood should close normally again.

 

Let me know if this works for you

 

Thanks

Any recommendations in this type of car, when I disconnect the computer nothing will néed to reset, any help any tip is welcome I never work in a Lexus before ???

You should be OK with disconnecting the battery to replace the starter just don't let it sit for weeks.

 

I like to use a "settings saver" that has a 9V battery in it to attach to the cables and then I wrap them in rags to insulate them from the body of the car. This maintains all the security and radio settings without worry about welding when I remove the cable from the starter or when I do an alternator. You still have to be careful with the removed cable ends and insulate those but it is much less risk.

 

A saver is about $5 at most autoparts stores and can save a lot of headaches.

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.
