    jack the car off the ground as far as possible, support it with jack stands, disconnect the battery before the repair, starter is at rear of the engine, it is held on by 2 long bolts, remove the electrical wiring from the posts on the starter solenoid located at the starter before removing the starter support bolts.

The starter is at the lower rear passenger side of the engine. Jack the car up and support with jack stands. bottom starter bolt is easy to get to, but other two are not. Middle and top bolts can be accessed with a very long socket extension stuck in beside the passenger side motor mount.

Remove transmission on a 1989 lincoln town car

Very Heavy trans.. 1. disconnect Battery ground cable. YOU must disconnect the shift linkage, The exuast system, the cooling lines, wires to switches, Remove the drive shaft, remove starter, remove the dipstick tube, Remove all bolts that attach the trans to the engine.. When you take it out trans fluid will be able to spill from rear area where the drive shaft spline is.. i suggest if you are going to remove the trans drain the fluid first.. WHILE YOU HAVE IT OUT REPLACE the filter and rear trans seal. after installation replace fluid with new fluid. I suggest before you try this you buy the Chilton Manual for your car.. Small investment to do it right.. This is a big job for the home mechanic if you do not know what you are doing.

How do i replace my own starter on my 1987 licoln town car?

1. Raise the car and support it.
2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
3. Crawl under the car and locate the starter. It is easiest to do this by following the positive power cable from the battery down to the starter.
4. Remove positive cable from starter.
5. Remove wires from solenoid.
6. Remove bolts holding starter to the transmission bell housing.
7. Remove the starter.

Installation is the reverse of removal.

How do you replace a starter on a 1996 lincoln town car?

There are three bolts holding the starter on. One or two of them are extremely difficult to access. But it can be done with a very long extension by coming in from in front of the motor mount. Disconnect your battery first and you can remove the wire and cable from the starter after you can tilt it forward.
