My 1981 FJ60 won't start. I have battery power, but the starter won't turn over. Is the starter something that is readily accessible and can easily removed and replaced by the average car owner? I replaced the starter a little over a year ago. Is there an exterior solenoid or other component that might have failed separater from the actual starter motor that I should check first?
Thanks!

IF IT COMES DOWN TO IT--REMOVE THE STARTER AND HAVE IT TESTED AT A POPULAR AUTO PARTS STORE

YOU REALLY SHOULD BUY YOU A MANUAL...THAT WAS MOSTLY MY STARTING POINT
