The starter went out in our 1996 Celica STX. I've heard it's pretty simple to replace & want to try & do it myself. Any instruction would be helpful...thanks.

    It is simple to replace. Disconnect the battery the tools you will need are 12mm for the starter/battery wire connector, 14mm socket for the starter to bell housing bolts, maybe 10mm and 12mm you will have it done in under an hour. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info or there is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You can get a one week subscription or year subscription very cheap. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual try http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online
