    I found it located on the right side down low under exhaust manifold. so far is looks like it would be easier access from below. Just tight space so it is hard to get tools/hands in. any hints?

  • rafterb Feb 23, 2009

    It is broke down roadside so need to get it home b4 to much undoing. Looks like maybe a swivel and long extension through wheel well might be a possibility, along with removing the heat shield from the manifold? I don't think the exhaust will be in the way of dropping it out. Reaching top bolt is biggest obstacle, it appears.

YOU HAVE TO STRIP SOME OF THE TOP LAYERS LIKE AIR FILTER BOX THROTTLE CABLE ECT... ITS AT THE TOP PART OF THE MOTOR CLOSEST TO THE FIRE WALL 3 BOLTS HOLD IT IN PLACE.
*REMEMBER TO DISSCONNECT THE BATTERY CABLE B4 YOU START YOUR PROJECT. IF ALL GO'S SMOOTH YOU SHOULD UNINSTALL AND REINSTALL IN LESS THAN 1 HOUR.

    OK YOU WOULD HAVE TO DROP THE EXHAUST AND USE A EXTENSION WITH A SWIVEL ADAPTER TO GET TO THE BOLTS. I WAS MISTAKEN ON MY FIRST POST, WAS A BIGGER MOTOR IN MY EXP.

How do i replace the starter in a 1999 ford explorer?


Disconnect the negative battery cable. If it has automatic ride control, make sure it is turned off before you raise the vehicle. Remove the starter solenoid cover, if it has it. Disconnect the large cable from the starter motor and the solenoid connections. Remove the starter mounting bolt and nut and remove the starter from the engine. Reinstall in the reverse order.
