Here I am attaching starter removal and relay location information just in case. I have also attached the part and labor information for the starter replacement. The labor pricing is listed in hours and depends on the hourly rate of the shop. The part can be found at lower price from your local auto part store.

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
