2005 Nissan Altima Q&A
2005 Nissan Altima Question: how much should it cost to replace a starter on a 2005 Nissan Altima?
you need a new shop. no way does the trans have to be removed to access the starter motor. Roy - mastertech6371
They must have been quoting for a new starter and flexplate/ flywheel ring gear, get another quote but it will be expensive if the flexplate/ flywheel ring gear needs to be replaced as the gearbox/transmission has to be removed. - patrick mannion
The part is about $150 and here is the procedure to replace starter. This is not a really difficult job to do. http://www.ehow.com/how_5822553_change-starter-nissan-altima.html - csubak30
