Undo the wiring, hoses drive shafts unbolt the engine mounts disconnect the speedo and gear shift cables and cooler pipes if auto obtain an engine crane hook up to the lift hooks at either end of the motor ,then lift the lot out of the car.
Remove the bonnet, drain oil and water remove radiator and fan remove all hoses cables and wiring attached to the engine. take weight of engine with a floor crane support the transmission .uncouple transmission from engine remove engine mount bolts , take a little more weight with the crane and slide engine clear of transmission , lift clear of car and slide crane clear to engine stand.
Best to buy a manual as it is rather involved and differs from manual and auto. It involves drain water and oil ,remove hoses. uncouple exhaust system, remove wiring attached to engine, uncouple all cables & power steering hoses, vacuum hoses ECT . on some models the radiator and fan have to be removed. Remove the bonnet and support the engine with a engine crane ,support the transmission with a transmission jack, remove the starter motor and transmission to engine bolts. Remove engine mounts, take a little more engine weight with the crane and slide the engine forward to clear the transmission, with the crane lift the engine clear of the body and wheel it away
ive heard of folks doing it without a crane but i would not try it , alignment is too critical with getting guides and stops back in and with nothing to move boom that would be too difficult
anyways: suspend boom end with double straps from crane , disconnect hydraulic/electric swivels/plugs at truck end lift end of boom slightly with boom all the way extended straight out , remove acess panel (both sides) at jct of upper/lower boom section . remove C clip one side drive out pin oppisite side (wiggle boom to clear pin) locate stops in lower section boom end unbolt , slowly pull upper boom with crane away take care of hydraulic lines and electric wires set on floor on wood cribbing , locate bottom of cylinder truck end find C clip and pin Might be behind a trim cover that might need to be remove drive out pin also remove bottom cylinder hyd hose connect crane to cylinder end move out a foot or so remove top cyliinder hydraulic hose then carefully slide out cylinider with crane , Note if your valves are not tight and new oil will leak back and cause boom base to sag when you unhook hydraulic hoses , your gonna need to block this up with wood cribbing just in case
reverse removal process to install new one , also i would not just install a new seal (you can) with out having cylinder recromed I'll bet it's rusty thats what tears the seals up
and allways replace entire oil volume in hydraulics your old seal is in old oil not good for the new one
First look under the motor, if there enough room from the oil pan and the cross subframe just removing oil will be fine, if there's not enough room you will have to undo the motor mount's and with an engine crane lift the engine so you will have enough room to remove the oil pan.There no need to remove engine out.
Remove all screws to door panel. Remove the lock and window controls. Then take large flat-tip screwdriver and gently pry directly next to plastic studs holding panel on to door. Lift door panel off. Remove plastic out of the way. You will now have access to window motor. You may have to solder off old wiring. Or if you have enough to cut, would be good
You are right about removing the motor mount. You have to support the engine with a jack. Use a piece of plywood between the jack and the oil pan. Remove the motor mount and you should be able to lift the engine up about 2-3 inches with the jack. Remove the serpentine belt and then you should have enough room to remove the alternator.
put a screwdriver into the keyhole and turn it,if it wont turn cut out a large hole directly behind the ford badge and pull out the lock a little way and then turn it.You dont have to take it all the way out.Idid this to mine its very easy,also check your key because it may be worn.
