1. Disconnect the negative battery cable
2. V-8 or V-6 are both located on the passenger side, remove two or three bolts holding the starter on the transmission
3. Drop the starter through the opening between the firewall and the exhaust
4. Unbolt the battery cable from the starter, and disconnect any other wires.
It just clicks, this indicates problem with battery or problem with starter.If starter is faulty then battery will just give power to starter and click.The engine will not start due to faulty starter.Most likely starter is faulty, but if both battery and starter checked out ok then there are other
possibilities too.Click the link below:--
This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.
Raise and safely support the vehicle with jackstands.
Tag and disconnect the wiring at the starter.
If necessary, turn the front wheels fully to the right. On some
later models it will be necessary to remove the frame brace. On many
models, it will be necessary to remove the two bolts retaining the
steering idler arm to the frame to gain access to the starter.
Unfasten the starter mounting bolts, then remove the starter from the vehicle.
Position the starter motor to the engine, then secure with the
retaining bolts. Tighten the mounting bolts to 12-15 ft. lbs. (16-20 Nm)
on starters with 3 mounting bolts and 15-20 ft. lbs. (20-27 Nm) on
starters with 2 mounting bolts.
If removed, tighten the idler arm retaining bolts to 28-35 ft. lbs. (38-47 Nm).
Connect the starter cable to the motor. Tighten to 70-110 inch lbs. (8-12 Nm).
Sounds like your loosing power to the starter motor (big wire at starter), the small wire is good cause you hear it clicking, that's the solenoid, next time it clicks, need to check voltage at big wire on starter with test light, while some one holds key to start, if you loose voltage, check wire at both ends, battery and at starter.
2 things 1 starter is bad its located on the driver side of the engine beside the oil pan. 3 bolts and 2 electrical connections
2 bad battery cables. i have replaced a lot of battery cables on these they let enough power through to get a click but not enough to start the engine. this cable is a special cable only available through ford or you can make 1 yourself
