Its kinda complicated and usually not something you should do unless experienced. first take out the four thru-bolts, and seperate the drive end frame and rotor assembly from the stator assembly by prying apart with a screwdriver at the stator slot. the fit between stator and frame is not tight,and the two can be separated easily. note that the seperation is to be made between the stator frame and drive end frame.after disasembly, place a piece of tape over the slip ring end frame bearing to prevent entry of dirt. to hold stator securely in the end frame, insert two thru-bolts through clearance holes of end frame with the heads resting against the shoulder of the stator frame. fasten stator holders onto the threaded ends of thru-bolts and hand tighten. when slip ring end frame assembly is separated from the rotor and drive end frame assembly, the brushes will fall down onto the shaft and come in contact with the lubricant. remove the brush holder assembly from the end frame by detaching the two brush holder assembly screws. also to get the correct angle, after you install the new brushes, wrap a piece of emory cloth or course grit sand paper around slip rings where the brushes contact and manually turn shaft. if you have any more questions let me know and i'll be glad to help you.

2004 Ford Taurus real sluggish at times when starting

have a load test done on the battery to check for dead cell, have the alternator out put checked by an accredited auto electrician. If the battery is good and the alternator is ok then look at the starter. Pull it and have it bench tested before you waste money on a new one.

I have a 1994 ford taurus station wagon, the battery won't stay charged, the confusing thing is that the inside panel and door light works

you have a faulty alternator by the sounds of it, try this simple test, : test the voltage of the battery with the vehicle off with a simple multimeter, it should read just over 12v then test it with the car running, it should read around 14-14.5 volts if it still only reads 12v then your alternator needs replacing.

Change bulb in the High Break Mount on a Ford Taurus

if it is a taurus wagon then you need to take a screwdriver and you can aactually pull the light down and the just pull of the cover and take out the bulb. if it is sitting on the back dash try opening your trunk and looking at it from inside your trunk and you should be able to access it that way.
