Its located rhs (oil filter side) low at the rear. Bitch of a job to remove as I found when removing mine as it was sticking. Remember to disconnect battery whilst the wheels are in the straight ahead position, if you intend removing it... good luck
No worries....This is only for GTR's I believe with the HICAS System Disconnect the battery for 10 minutes, whilst disconnected straighten the wheels then reconnect the battery. I had to do it on mine. There are quit a few threads covering this.
I was pooping it thinking it would need to go to a specialist for some expensive reset!!
Now could you possibly tell me what is with the starter removal.. where are the bolts.. how many and wich way do they come in from?? I assume you removed it from below?? Please don't tell me you stripped off all the inlet manifold!!
I found a bolt at the bottom.. that goes through the started into the bell housing.. removed this and it didn't seem keen on going anywhere so I assume there is another one I can't see? I found what feels like a thread sticking out at the top (thread is on the starter moter side) but I can't feel any nut head and even if I could I have no idea how I would get a spanner on it?
Is this a cap head or something that comes in from through the bell housing??
As R32 said there are two 14mm AF bolts holding the starter to the bell housing these both come in from the front if I remember. Sounds like you have found the lower one, the other is 180 degrees opposite at the top of the starter near the block vertical face. This is the harder one to reach I did mine from underneath, after loosening it undid it 1/4 turns at a time with fingers.
My starter was making a whinning sound for a second or two after engaging the ring gear so I disconnected the battery, left all the wiring to the starter connected, removed the two bolts, covered the bellhousing hole with a rag and cleaned away the clutch dust from the bendix with wd40 whilst starter was pulled forward out of the bell housing. Then refitted... solved the problem. Hope yours is just a cleaning job. Enjoy.....
Spoons!! Sorted!! well almost.. bought a new battery on the way home to day just to make double sure and it fired up!! starter is sticking a bit when it fires up.. but if that carries on I will do what you did and take it off and give it a clean.. just glad it's running for now!
For all the info.
