I drive a 2014 awd base juke, recently ive been getting stuck everywhere due to a bad starter. You turn the key and it just clicks, i already replaced the brake switch and after testing the leads going to the starter.......it gets power it just clicks. Now id love to install it myself to save money and just work on my car (i do all the maintenance on my car) but my biggest issue is i dont know how to go about doing it. I know FastReligion had a video on it but thats nowhere to be found, and i cant find any fourm post that doesnt link video. So does anyone have any idea to go about this??? or atleast a diagram of its location so i can figure out how i plan to get there. Also as a side i do manage and autozone so getting parts is not the issue.


Thanks it advance for any help you guys can give

Also i dont want this to turn into a discussion about fastreligion please leave politics out of this i just want my juke to start

Hello Ace, in case FastReligion doesn't see my message in time, do you think you could forward me the video link he emailed you on the starter replacement?

Here is a link to doing the intake manifold. The starter is right under it. You just need to move a harness out of the way and unplug a few sensors to get it out: Intake Manifold Removal

Yeah use his intake mainfold video link, he was super helpful but it's really just under the intake, taking Off a flew clips and wrestling with God to convince it to come out. Be very careful with the throttle body tho I over torqued and snapped a bolt putting it back in, now I'm waiting on backorder from Nissan as of right now, car runs fine with 3 bolts but I don't feel safe for longterm

I have a pile of those throttle body bolts sitting in my shop. Message me I can send you one, just pay postage

Glad you posted this question.
I just replaced the starter in my Nissan Juke 2013. It took my brother and I about 4 hours. Definitely It is not an easy Job because there is no direct access to it. To get to it the following need to be removed:
  1. Hood
  2. Front bumper cover
  3. Front bumper
  4. Front head lights
  5. Front blinker lights
  6. Radiator top support beam
  7. Radiator fan
Disconnect the top radiator hose and place a rag in the house’s end and radiator’s cap body to prevent coolant from leaking. No need to drain the radiator or disconnect any other hose as you can work around them. This will give you opportunity to swing the radiator and turbo radiator slightly clockwise as you pívot it from the left end (passenger side) to access the starter and alternator. Remove the radiator’s cooling fan. Remove the two bolts fastening the 1/4” aluminum cooling line connecting the flexible line running in front of the starter. Also loosen the top bolt fastening the transmission oil metal stick. Be gentle with all loosened hoses and mental piping.
You should now have visibility to the starter and sufficient access to it. Disconnect the power feed wire from the alternator by removing the fastening nut behind it. Remove the power feed wire from the started by removing the fastening nut behind it. Note the power harness connects both the alternator and the starter. There is no much cable slack, so it is tight to access.
By now there should be access to the two bolt nut heads fastening the starter. The one at the bottom is quite accessible. The one on the top is hardly visible but it is reachable.
Once the bolts are removed, grab the end part of the starter and rock it until it becomes loose. You will need to swing it counter clockwise to get it out. Slightly push away the radiator hoses obstructing its way.
Installing the new starter and the rest of the parts back is just a reverse process. Recommend buying eight to twelve of the plastic push-on fasteners holding the plastic grill and bumper cover as they break easily. Also, there are plenty of videos posted by good samaritans on the internet about replacing Nissan Juke starters you should watch before embracing the task.
It is sure a work-Intense task but a doable DIY project for those willing and entry level mechanics aficionados.

Hope my notes are of help as yours and the multiple videos posted on the internet on this topic have been to me.

Many blessings.

Cheers,

HROD
