I was just quoted $1,650 to replace the starter due to the fact that the transmission had to be removed to do the job.

The part is about $150 and here is the procedure to replace starter. This is not a really difficult job to do.

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.
Thanks for the reply and info on the cost of starter replacement on the 2005 altima. I do appreciate your advise. The mechanic did mention something about "teeth missing", so maybe it needs more than just the starter and may need the flexplate/flywheel ring gear as well. Does $1,650 sound reasonable to you however and is most of the cost for the labor intensive aspect of this repair? Again, any advice from you is greatly appreciated! Thanks and have a great day!
