    disconnect the battery before starting work! after that just common hand tolls and a jack to get it up in the air at least 3 feet. Use Jack Stands please.

Im not sure where the lexus starter is located but here is your standard steps.

  1. Remove battery positive wire " very Important "
  2. remove wires from starter mark if you cant remember or use your cell phone take a photo of wires.
  3. remove the Positive red thick wire
  4. and solenoid wire
  5. usually most starters have 2 to 3 bolts the starter sits usually on the gearbox near the engine.
  6. Out of experience I wont recommend a refurbished starter rather go for a new one.
Hope this helps

Let engine cool down, remove battery terminals (negative first, then positve), remove starter. Install starter, install battery terminals (positive first, then negative), start and check for proper operation (no grinding noise or squeling).

Replace/fix starter on 1991 Lexus LS400


Not too bad. Not much room, just enough to drop the starter. It is probably easier to go up through exhaust if you can get your exhaust shield off the manifold .

1992 LS 400 Lexus. Car wouldn't start. New battery, thought was fuse problem, but no, towed in and mechanic says need new starter but starter under the engine block, will need new gasket for block after...


remove black plastic relay cover in plastic underhood fuse box and activate relay9006980.jpg with a very small screwdriver and ignition on. If starts, obviously the starter is fine, if not the starter is indeed bad and needs replacement so hold onto your ankles cuz it's gonna hurt.
