Here is the picture of how I got it out and how I put it back in. Notice the starter had to be rotated so that the black electrical clip is on top.

96 2.4L Tacoma Starter rebuild

Just picked up a "Reduction Gear Starter Repair Kit" or just "Starter repair kit" it doesn't show up if you search by vehicle. http://www.napaonline.com/Search/Detail.aspx?R=BK_6551143_0293958406. From Napa Auto parts. I installed the contacts. The kit comes with all 4 sizes of contacts, as well as the o-rings, terminal insulators, and wave washers. They seem to be a good fit. The studs supplied in the kit are not the right size. If my started hadn't been totally non-operational, I would have ordered a kit with the solenoid plunger. I found one on e-bay for the same price as the Napa Starter Repair kit.

It took me a bit of finagling to get the starter out of the engine compartment. In the end I removed one screw that holds a line coming from the power steering and pulled it out from above.

We place a lot of demands on our starters, and occasionally they do wear out. Rebuilding your starter not only makes economic sense, but gives you a sense of satisfaction by 'doing it yourself'. Starter rebuilds are a relatively simple job requiring only the most basic of hand tools.

Here is a breakdown of the components. Each engine has one of two different starters, they are usually marked with either the part number or the kw.

2.7L (1.4kw) starter P/N: 28100-0C010-84 (non-cold spec)
2.7L (1.8kw) starter P/N: 28100-75140-84 (cold spec)

1. (Required) Contact P/N: 28226-74070 ($8.38)
2. (Required) Contact P/N (non-cold spec): 28226-54340 ($4.45) or Contact P/N (cold spec): 28226-22050 ($5.92)
3. (Recommended) Plunger P/N: 28235-54380 ($16.93)
4. (Optional, if needed) Clutch P/N: 28011-26042 ($59.09)


3.4L (1.4kw) starter P/N: 28100-07010-84 (non-cold spec) *Regular cab & Extra Cab may be cold spec or non-cold spec
3.4L (1.8kw) starter P/N: 28100-62030-84 (cold spec) *All Double Cabs should have cold spec

1. (Required) Contact P/N: 28226-74070 ($8.38)
2. (Required) Contact P/N (non-cold spec): 28226-16130 ($9.22) or Contact P/N (cold spec): 28226-54340 ($4.45)
3. (Recommended) Plunger P/N: 28235-55050 (non-cold spec) 28235-54380 (cold spec) both $16.93
4. (Optional, if needed) Clutch P/N: 28011-26042 ($59.09)
