General Car Discussion / Re: 2000 PRIMERA HYPER CVTM6 SR20 starter removal help

They are a pretty easy starter to get out. 1st thing is disconnect the battery, remove the battery & tray. Remove the complete airbox assembly & intake hose. Unplug the small wire to the starter & the large power cable. Either 2x 14mm or 17mm bolts. Then lift the starter out of position.

I pulled the control arms off on the weekend and went to pickapart and compared them with a couple of cars there, as far as i can see there is near to no change in the control arms. I can see a little bit of pain crack on them where there has been some deflection during the impact but not enough to cause any significant permanent change. I have pulled one of the shocks off as well and cant see any real damage either, id rather not have to just randomly swap parts out if i dont need to trying to fix it :/

Someone else suggested to me that the front of these are a little soft, so it is possible the subframe holes have elongated? I cant see any marks where the bolt heads had moved so i dont think this is the case, but will confirm by pulling a couple of the bolts for a good look.

I did notice the centre bar the front and rear engine mounts sit on has had a whack and it is possible the engine is sitting differently, but given the CV joints are there to take up any differences in positions i doubt this will cause any of the effect im seeing.

Any other ideas?

it would be pretty unlikely to be more than the lower control arm. if the shock was bent it wouldn't be able to move up and down without a whole lot of pain and friction! fortunately n15 lower control arms are easy /cheapto get, and easy to replace once you know the trick for removing the lower ball joint.

Kind of sounds similar, my wagon chews through gas like no tomorrow and occasionally i get a bit of a fuel smell while driving its just hard to tell how much fuel im actually using as the gauge doesnt work haha, Im just about to start an auto sparky course next year, hoping i can learn a bit from that haha

in my manual 4wd wagon I had a broken knock sensor, that didn't throw an engine light. it really depends on what is broken, I only found out my knock sensor was gone because I was getting really bad fuel economy, I work as an auto sparky apprentice so I just grabbed the scanning tool from work and it turns out my car had code 34 which is knock sensor fault. so even though there's no engine light doesn't mean nothing is wrong.

Also for the fuel gauge reading, what could be wrong might be the level in the tank worn out, which could be expensive depending on how hard it is to get to it (if it's accessible from an access hole in the car or dropping the tank) I'm not sure yet. or could be your fuel gauge sticking or something, I've heard it happens but not sure. but to find out it's just doing a resistance test from the sender wire as the gauge works off a resistance sent from the tank level.
If you tell the auto sparky about all this he will be able to fix it, but get a quote for it first if you do it that way.

Thanks Mathuw, i have booked it for a scan, auto sparky said if no engine light is on fault codes probably wont come up but he will scan to see anyway.
Also having an issue with my fuel gauge, sometimes reads accurately but mostly just sits at half 90% of the time even when it has a full tank or empty tank, was thinking maybe sender unit in fuel tank should i start there?

Most likely the lower control arm is bent. Maybe even the strut. Depending on your level of mechanical knowledge, you may need to take it to a mechanic for inspection & repair.
Yeah i was going to strip it apart this weekend, hoping it is just the control arm.
