SOURCE: how to remove starter on 1997 ford f150

Welcome to Fixya

Here's the procedure:

  • 1Raise the front end of the F150 off the ground with the floor jack. Place the two jack stands under the front portion of the F150's frame and then lower the truck onto the jack stands.

  • 2

    Open the hood and disconnect the negative battery cable end from the battery using the battery wrench. Push the cable off to the side where it can't accidentally contact the battery during the repair process.

  • 3

    Climb under the front passenger side of the F150 with the socket set. Locate the starter, which bolts to the side of the engine, where the transmission bell housing meets the back side of the engine block.

  • 4

    Unbolt the starter ground wire and wiring harness using the socket set. Move the wires aside.

  • 5

    Hold the body of the starter with one hand while removing the two starter mounting bolts with the other, using a socket set to do so. Never let the weight of the starter bear down on the loose bolts.

  • 6

    Pull the starter out by hand once you have removed both of the mounting bolts. Compare the old starter to your replacement, making sure they are physically identical before proceeding with the installation of the replacement unit.

  • 7

    Hold the replacement starter in position and thread the mounting bolts through the starter flange and into their mounts. Tighten them down with the socket set. Remember to never let the weight of the starter hang on the loose bolts.

  • 8

    Attach the ground wire and starter wiring harness in reverse of disconnection.

  • 9

    Lower the F150 off the jack stands with the floor jack and then reconnect the negative battery cable using the battery wrench.

    The starter on my 1997 f150 5.4 4x4 will not come off, i have already takin to bolts off but it wont budge


    There are three bolts holding it to the bell housing. The top bolt is hard to see and difficult to get a socket on, have you removed all three? Try spraying wd40 where it mates to engine.

    How to remove starter motor


    • Disconnect the cable from the truck battery's negative terminal. Raise and secure the F150 on jack stands.
    • Disconnect the wiring from the starter motor solenoid. Remove the hex nut holding the cable to the B+ terminal and remove the cable. Do the same with the cable connected to the S terminal.
    • Disconnect the starter's ground cable from its lower mounting stud by removing its bolt, then remove the mounting fasteners attaching the starter motor to the engine. The starter has two or three bolts depending on the engine, with the lower bolt being a stud bolt. Remove the starter motor.

    Starter removal on a 1997 ford f-150


    Disconnect the negative cable from the battery. Disconnect the wires on the starter. Remove the 3 bolts securing the starter. Most likely you will need a few extensions and wobble sockets to get your ratchet out near the fan or front of the wheel well to get the top 2 bolts out.
