Question about 1999 Mercury Cougar
Nope... it's on the bottom of the motor... or rather mounted there... i'm not familiar with that car... is the motor in sideways or front to back.... either way... the starter drives a gear on the back of the motor located where the transmission is bolted onto the motor. so look at that spot on either side of the motor on the bottom.. best to just lay on the ground and look up at the motor... unless you have car ramps you can drive the car up on. be sure to unhook the battery... usually two bolts hold it on.... drop the starter... unhook the cables and make sure you put them on the new starter the same way... mount the starter back on and tighten the bolts and you are good to go.
you do know for sure the issue is the starter ?
