Default 97 Camry Starter Help

Hi All,

Going to be changing a starter on a 1997 Camry tomorrow and wanted know if
there is anything I should be concerned with. Is this pretty much the same
as changing a starter in my 72 Chevy Burb?

Thansk
John

It's not too difficult at all. If using aftermarket brand ensure the posts
are on the exact same side of the starter or you will have to stretch the
wires significantly. How did you determine the starte is bad? I thought
mine was bad but realized it was the battery.

Put the battery in another car and it started it right away. Put the
battery back in the Camry and tried to start it again and nothing. Tapped
the starter with a hammer and it started right up.

When you say you tried to start it and nothing, Does that mean you heard the
relay click but the starter did not turn or you didn't hear anything when
you turned the key. It is possible that it could be just the contacts in the
starter that are worn. Go to this site and it tells you all you ever wanted
to know about the starter and how to fix it
http://www.off-road.com/toyota/tech/starter/. On my car when I turned the
key I could hear the relay click but the motor would not turn because the
contacts were worn. I just had to buy new contacts and it fixed it. That
was two years ago and it is still working fine.
