Well Jerome,

That's a good name for a car in such a dilemma...
Mystique... 1997 (posted both 4 & 6 cylinder parts).

Since the lifting is the hard part... it would be better to take it to your cooperative PARTS HOUSE FOR TESTING..

you might GET to do everything at least twice (bad idea).

If you have the bolts.. the job gets a lot simpler.
Generally you have a Huge (POS +) wire that connects
from the battery DIRECTLY to the SOLENOID.

First thing:
You want to do is DISCONNECT the GROUND
at the BATTERY (NEGATIVE (-)) terminal.
(Always first off & last on... always... safety first).

Connect the "S" lead to the "S" terminal
(battery KEY switched ON only in START Position) ...

If you don't own (or want to buy) a manual
go to BBB Industries and register to use their
wiring DIAGRAMS & TSBs
(See very bottom: Technical Service Bulletins).

Starter went bad on 1997 mystique. Need to remove it and put new one on. Not sure just how to take it out whether from the top or from the bottom or through a wheel well.

On the 2.0L remove the air intake resonators. Unbolt the starter electrical connections and mounting bolts and remove the starter from below. To install torque bolts to 15-20 ft lbs
On the 2.5L you will need to remove the air cleaner assembly to get at the support bracket which also needs to be removed from the engine and transaxle mount. Remove the fuel line support bracket at the accellerator bracket. You can then proceed to remove the starter motor bolts and electrical connections.

My starter went out on my 2000 mercury mystique and my husband wants to change it hisself, but he needs a diagram to do it. can anyone help me out here?

When he goes to the auto parts store he will purchase a rebuilt starter that will come with instructions. Once he has swapped the new for the old, he will return the old to the auto parts store as part of the deal. Joe
