This is a DIY on how to replace a starter for a 2000 Infiniti I30 which is the same as a Nissan Maxima or Nissan Cefiro
First you should remove the battery post so that you have no power going to the car
Then you need to remove the air box intake
You will see the starter , Then you remove the power cable connecting to the starter , Move the lines out of the way . You can loosen the bolt toward you very easily .
As you can see trying to loosen that second bolt from the top was very tight . So what what I did below was remove the driver side tire
With a extension it was easier to get to that bolt and loosen it . Once you have it loosen you can either continue to remove the bolt or you can go back to the top , but just to let you know the bottom for me I was able to turn the ratchet better .
I matched up the starter
Once you have it off then you can put it back on the same way you took it off .
