The starter is located on the drivers side right below your manifold and right above the start of your exhaust. Good luck trying to replace. I have no idea how to do this other than to drop the exhaust...

How To Remove

1. Removed the (-) wire on the battery.

2. Disconnect 02 sensors (2)

3. Lower exhaust front left pipe (5 nuts) 3 in front flange 2 on rear. Needed 10" extension and I think the nut was 17mm

4. Remove starter (2 bolts) 14 mm

5. Remove wires on starter. One is a plug in and the other is attached with a nut 12mm. I found it easy to remove it once starter was loose I could get a better view of it.

Good Luck

I looked on this site for this information myself. I have a 99 Passport and needed to change the starter. It is, like the answer below says, on the driver's side forward of the exhaust and below the manifold. I didn't find any good answers for how to get it out of the compartment so a friend and I went at it this afternoon.

Disconnect the battery first. After that you may want to remove the driver's side front wheel. This gave us access to the starter for removal of the battery cable and the spade terminal which are on top of the starter while it is mounted. We then removed the two bolts that hold the starter in place. All of that took about 10 minutes to complete. On my passport the battery cable came off with a 12mm, the spade terminal is plug and play and all you have to do is push down on the tab on top and pull the terminal apart. The bolts for the starter are 14mm on my car. You need extensions to get at them though.

After that is when all of the work began. We then tried every way possible to get it out of the compartment without taking anything else apart. No luck. So we removed the heat shields around the exhaust manifold and exhaust. Still not enough room. So finally we took the 3 bolts out of the flange that connects the exhaust manifold to the exhaust pipe. We had to use reverse torque bolt sockets for this. The one we used was the NAPA E-14. There are nuts on the bolts but removing only those won't do the trick. They are 17mm in case you are wondering. We then had to remove the bracket just aft (rearward) of the catalytic converter to get enough play in the exhaust pipe. Once you do this, the starter slides right out of the space moving down and aft.

The new starter goes right in no problems once you are to this point. The only casualty to the whole process was one of the bolts from that flange on the exhaust manifold lost it's threads in the process. We were lucky that none of mine sheared off which is apparently a large concern and somewhat of a probability. Good luck.

The starter motor on a 1997 Nissan Pathfinder is at the bottom left of the motor toward the firewall as viewed from the front. It is easily accesible by sliding beneath the passenger side door and finding the engine block on which it is bolted to.
