Starter motors are always found somewhere around the perimeter of the bellhousing, usually on either the left or right side, on lower part. Starter always has a large wire connected to it the same as the one on the battery. If you already have the new unit, look at the mount holes and use that as a reference on where they are on the one in vehicle (also check for any top or side brackets). Sometimes starter has to be manuvered out from between other components. If impossible, then anything in the way must be moved. Always disconnect the battery before working on starter. Make notes on where wires are before removing them, and put them back the same way.

It is your main fusible link. It is located in the center of a block of 3 fusible links located in the engine bay on the front of the drivers side strut tower. Usually it is corrosion. You can usually unplug the lInk, clean it off and replace it. A wise upgrade is a cartridge type fuse. Join us for free at for ALL festiva answers. They last forever.

How to change a starter motor

Disconnect battery, remove and mark wires and cable taken off starter, remove the 3 mounting bolts and remove starter. It looks like two bolts come from other side and bolt into starter and 1 bolt goes thru the starter into the bell housing/motor. Do the oposite to install. Here is a picture of your starter and a good place to purchase it. Wish you luck.

Locating the starter on 90 Ford Festiva

Hi? Let's give it a bash!
Look where your gearbox meets with the enjin, locate the bolts that holds enjin and g/box together. The starter motor is located there and the connecting bolts are inline with the above mentioned bolts, the starter motor bolts on to the g/box and is located on the top half of the gearbox, should easily be visible ( under the hood, not underneath the vehicle.
Alternatively follow the thick red wire from the battery possitive to the rear of the starter motor also note that there is a thinner red wire from battery possitive to the alternator.
I hope this advice is helpfull!
