Question about 1995 Ford Explorer
I have removed the two bolts that hold the started in place, i'm having problems getting the starter out past the drive shaft and are the wires snap on type or do i need to be looking to unbolt them? its such a close fit that I can't see the wire side.
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.

Sounds like the brushes in the starter motor are worn out. When you strike the starter with a hammer, it jiggles the worn out brushes, allowing them to make better contact. Before replacing the starter, check that both the main starter cable and the smaller "trigger" wire have good, clean, tight connections. Otherwise, you need a new starter.
