has rebuilt ones for as low as $62, but around $90 looks to be the norm for a rebuilt one.
Using the Google, I found that the top bolt is tough to get to. Found this answer on Just Answer:
Yes that upper bolt can be tough. What I have to remove the upper bolt is a long 24" 3/8 drive extension with a swivel attached to the end of that and then a 10mm Allen socket Yours may have a 19mm or 17mm bolt depending on what the last person put back in.
I usually feed my extension over the rear transmission mount along the side of the transmission and use a long 3/8 ratchet to brake it loose Or if its super tight I will use a 38/ to 1/2" adapter and use a 1/2 drive ratchet. If you don't have these tools they can be sourced at most tool supply shops. I hope I have answered your question. Please press ACCEPT then if you need further help feel free to ask.
EDIT: This pertains to the OP, not the Tacoma, although the top bolts on many starters can be a little tricky. However, it's one of the easiest things to replace on most cars.
