Question about 1999 Ford Crown Victoria
How can you get at the top bolts to remove the starter ?
Yes they are very difficult to get to.
its just the top one and some mechanics leave them out after starter replacement.
it sounds bad but true.
i use either a stubby 10 mm wrench and a prybar to break it loose,
or a 3/8 ratchet and a wobble extenion and socket. it has to be the perfect length using different extensions to reach and still fit with the ratchet handle at the back of the starter.
sorry but it can be done.....
no stubby wrench, cut one

95 Crown Vic Starter
6 o'clock - 10mm short socket - no problem
9 o'clock - 10mm long socket - 3/8" wobbly socket - 3/8" universal joint - take some more time.
11 o'clock - 10mm short socket - 3" wobbly extension - 6" wobby extension - 6" wobbly extension - 3/8" flex head ratchet.
I have pretty small hands - sufficient to feel both ends of the extensions and fit the socket - and it was still a b*tch to get at the starter bolts - if you have big hands, I don't know what you're going to do.
