    i dont think so

    it seems the motor mount needs to be loosened that the motor jacked up

    or the difrential rubber gromet bolt needs to be talken off so the difrential

    can be dropped there is vertually not any angle to twist or turn it so i am not sure what angle you used

It will come out once the wires are off, I have replaced dozen's of them on the 4.0 in my 20 years as a Ford dealer technician.

    I can only tell you this, i was on a lift, I wormed the starter out, not sure how, just did it, never took anything else loose.

  • mdunn908 Mar 18, 2011

    well i cleaned the wire ends and bolted it back up,, it lasted 2 years, finally went out, maybe i need to get the wheels up and hang and maybe the driveshaft will drop down just enough, but if you were to try to do it on the ground it will not come out of a 1995 for expl 4x4 4.0

    How do you remove a starter from a 1996 Ford Explorer v6


    unhook the battery

    remove the two or three bolts holding the starter on. pay attention to lengths of the bolts so they are put back in the same holes

    take the wires off the old starter one at a time and attach them to the new starter (so you are sure which connector they go on)

    bolt on the new starter.

    hook up the battery and you are done.

    Replace Ford Explorer 1995 Starter


    There are just 2 bolts that hold the starter to the engine, then there is the battery cable and the starter solenoid leads, take note of where the wires go before removing them. Lets talk safety, use jack stands to hold the car up, disconnect the battery so you don't burn yourself or start an electrical fire.
