First disconnect the battery before you start to work on the starter. Then disconnect the starter soloniod wire and starter power wire. The starter has two bolts, 15mm socket, by the ring gear end of the unit.

How do you remove a stripped 6 o'clock bolt on starter

I've never heard this terminology before.
Please try to re-explain.

If you are talking about a location bolt, then you may have to cut the bolt head or nut off with either a saw, or by using heat.

I have a 2000 focus se, 2.0; needs new starter, where is it located?

The haynes manual isnt really much help with actually locating the starter. I know because i got the haynes manual to try and find the starter on my girlfriends 2000 focus. It tells you how to change it but not where it is located. I just changed the starter so ill give you the rundown. Underneath your car right where the headers connect to the exhaust there will be a black metal plate with 4 bolts about 4 inches wide and 6 inches long. The starter is behind that barely visible. Once you remove that metal plate you can clearly see the bottom of the starter with the starter solenoid on top. There are 3 bolts on the starter but you will only see the head of one bolt from the bottom. DO NOT remove that bolt first. Go to the top of the engine and remove the air hose from the air filter box. You will see 2 bolts that connect into the right side of the starter brace. It is a very tight space but once you get the bolts off now you can go underneath the car and hold the starter while you remove the last bolt. On my 2000 focus the wires dont give you much room for it to drop. My starter only dropped about an inch so you wont have much room to work with the wires which are located on the top of the starter at the right side of the solenoid. The wires lead into a plastic harness with 2 nuts on the right side of the plastic wire harness. Good Luck.

Need to know the location of the starter trying to explain to a 17 year old where it is and how to remove

It is on the bottom passenger side of the engine at the rear. Follow the large power wire from the battery and you will see it. It is round and has a small round solenoid (or Bendix) on it. Make sure to: 1)disconnect the battery, 2) remove the wires from the starter one set at a time and mark them so you don't get them mixed up. Remove the two bolts (5/8" I think) and pull the starter out. Replace the solenoid also.

How to change a starter in a 2007 town and

1. Disconnect the negative side of battery. 10mm ratchet.
2. Jack the front of the vehicle.
3. Use jack stands to support the vehicle. Do not use only the jack. I use the jack as a back up for the stands.
4. Chock/Block the rear wheels.
5. The Starter is located on the front side of the engine, just below the exhaust manifold near the transmission-flywheel housing.
6. Looking at the engine compartment from the left fender side of the van, there are two bolts (15mm) that need to be removed. One located at 10-11 o'clock position on the Starter and one at 4-5 o'clock position on the Starter.
7. The Upper Bolt is easily accessed from the front of the vehicle going OVER the radiator. It is partially hidden by a black brace. There is a black ground wire going to where a nut is located. This first nut will allow you to take off the ground connection, however the bolt has another nut further in (to the left) which is totally hidden. Remove this first nut.
8. After the first nut is off then using a deep socket 15mm socket remove the second nut which is attached to the bolt.
9. Go under the vehicle to remove the wires from the Starter. The first wire is the positive cable (should be red) attached on the solenoid portion of the starter. That is a 13mm nut, Remove the nut and lock washer and detatch the wire. The second wire (single small gauge) goes to the solenoid and is connected using a slide lock - press release connection. It is difficult to see the slide lock and the press release located on the top side of the connection. Slide the red slide lock out and press the release, and pull out the connection straight out. Do not force it, or it may damage the connector. Note the placement of the bottom bolt position on the Starter. DO NOT remove the tow (2) small, but long connector bolts on the wire connection end of the starter.
10. Remembering the noted postion: remove the lower 15mm bolt from the Starter. The bolt head is located on the back side of plate moving towards the left side of the Van. It is easily accessed from underneath in front of the transmission. Near the end of removing this bolt, support the starter or it will fall out.
11. Remove the Starter, noting the position of the starter. There should be a separate starter facing plate. If if didn't come down with the starter check up in the starter to flywheel opening and remove the plate.
12. Installation is Reverse of above. The facing plate is a little tricky getting it to stay in place. By starting with the bottom bolt it is easier, Make sure you continuously support the Starter in position to save crossthreading the bolt or starter. Hand tighten only the bottom bolt as youwnat to be able to turn the starter slightly to get the top bolt in.
Starter Bolts are tigthen to 35 ft-lbs.
I hope this helped. Let me know if it helped or if you need additional help. Happy Thanksgiving!!

Need pictures of starter location on the car engine

This web site won't allow that much bandwidth to be sent through this Email.So I will attempt to explain where to look and what a starter looks like.Starters are located low and on the front of most transverse engine(front wheel drive) American cars.The easiest way to find it is to trace the battery cable from the "+" side of the battery.This most commonly used cable is red, about the size of your pinkie finger.You'll need to jack the car up and put it on jack stands for support.NEVER crawl under a vehicle supported by only a jack.Remove the negative cable from the battery (black cable with a " - "by the post).Trace the other cable marked positive with a " + " down to the starter.You'll need to remove any engine covers from underneath to get access to the starter.Next remove the cables and wires from the starter itself,mark their locations if it will help.Personally I use a digital camera and take pictures from every angle,load them on my computer for later viewing.Also,if you blow up the picture,you can find those hidden bolts you can't see.Now simply remove the attaching bolts and remove the starter.

94 toyota carolla starter clicks eventualy starts

You have two options: replace the starter (easiest, but most expensive), or replace the contacts (cheaper, but more work involved).
In any case, you have to remove the starter. Disconnect the battery BEFORE you start. Locate the starter and remove the wires going to it. The starter is held onto the transmission with 2 large bolts. Remove both, and slide the starter out.

If you want to change the contacts, observe the starter, locate a metal plate held on with 3 bolts. Remove the bolts and the plate. You will now see a plunger, and 2 copper colored contacts. Those are what needs to be replaced. Changing the contacts is easy, just do one at a time, and ensure that all insulators are installed properly on reassembly.
