If this is a 4.6L or 5.4L engine the upper right side bolt is tucked in tight against the block. On a 1999 F150 4x4, and similar you need to take off the passenger tire and get into the wheel well. It will help your vision a lot. But about 4 feet of extensions, skirting the motor mount, will position the rachet in the cavity by the crankshaft.

A tip on reassembling-take a piece of masking tape to secure the bolt onto the socket.

Starter replacement on f150 4.6


Ford engineers obviously got a big laugh when they designed this one. The third bolt is not visible, but it is right at the top of the bolt "circle", the bottom two are visible and fairly accessible. If you have small hands, you might be able to reach a finger way up there and feel it. Because of the engine mount, you have to have a socket and extension that is exactly the right length, leaving just enough room between the end of the starter and the engine mount to attach a ratchet. Getting the socket on the bolt head is sort of a stab in the dark; push the socket and extension toward where you think the bolt is, and sometimes you can feel the socket engage the bolt head. The only other option might be to remove the exhaust manifold so you can see the bolt, but you are likely to break off at least one manifold bolt/stud, so that would be a last resort for me. Once the top starter bolt is loosened, you might have better luck finishing the removal with 1/4 inch drive tools as they take up less space.

Removed two bolts from starter and cannot get starter out heard may be extra support bolts but cant locate


I had a Toyota with an odd-ball starter bolt from the back side of where the starter mounted. It didn't even look like a starter bolt, but sure enough, it was. So keep checking, you may have a third bolt you haven't found.

Remove starter 1997 gran marquis


Good luck! Three 10mm bolt hold the starter in place. you can see two of them, but the third is on top, and will seriously test your patience and exorcise your vocabulary. I have been successful in removing the starter solenoid while the starteris still in the car, which allows you some clearance to remove the third bolt. Otherwise, the exact length combination of socket and extentions on a 1/4" drive ratchet is required over the top of the starter. Make sure you disconnect the battery before you begin.

Can not remove the top screw from top of starter


Thank you for the inquiry.
The key to removing the top bolt is the correct tool - a flexible socket extension.

Open the hood on the Marquis and disconnect the negative battery cable from its post with a socket wrench. Wrap the entire metal terminal end of the cable with electrical tape. As you lay the cable down within the engine area, be sure it's not in direct contact with any other metal or the engine itself.
Remove the small plastic cover on the starter's power wires to access the retaining nuts underneath it. The cover should come off by hand. If you have any trouble removing it, use a flat-head screwdriver to assist you.
Label each of the starter's wires clearly with white painter's tape before removing them. Use a socket wrench to loosen both of the nuts holding the power wires in place, then remove the nuts and wires by hand. On the 4.6-liter engine, the starter has a third wire that's a push-on connection. Remove the wire by gently pulling it off its connection.
Remove the top retaining bolt on the starter. It will require the use of a flexible socket extension bar because of the cramped space. Support the starter with one hand and remove the bottom retaining bolt. If you have a different engine other than the 4.9 liter, the starter may have a third retaining bolt. After removing the starter's retaining bolts, slowly lower the starter from its position on the engine. Install the starter by simply reversing this procedure exactly.

How to change strarter


Disconnect battery at negative terminal.
Also, disconnect thick wires that go to starter from battery.
Find bolts that hold starter on to engine block and remove them.

Installation is reverse of the removal.

Front turn signal bublb replacement


The only real way to do this is to remove the headlight assembly. There are two T30 Torx bolts on the top brackets for the headlight - remove those. The third bolt is harder to see. In the top of the fender, down over the headlight, there is a round hole. Shine a flashlight down there and you'll see the third Torx bolt. Unscrew that and then use one of those $1 magnetic retrieval tools they sell at the parts store to pull the bolt out.

Once these three bolts are out, you can manipulate the headlight out of the front of the car. From that point it's easy to replace the bulb. Reassembly is the reverse of removal.
