How do you remove the starter out of a 2003 ford focus?


Removal
1. Disconnect the car's negative battery cable.
2. Raise the car's front end with its floor jack and support it on axle stands; make sure you set the parking brake first.
3. Disconnect the air cleaner's outlet tube from the throttle body if your model has an SPI engine; loosen the hose clamp with pliers.
4. Unbolt and disconnect the power-steering pump using your wrench and set the pump aside. Do not disconnect or stretch the pump's lines. This should only be needed if your Focus has a 2.3 liter engine.
5. Unscrew the starter motor's mounting bolts using the wrench and then pull the motor off the dowel sticks on the transmission housing; you might need to angle the motor to remove it. Unscrew the nuts and disconnect the motor's wiring.

Installation
1. Connect the wiring and nuts to the replacement starter motor and slide it onto the dowel sticks, then tighten the mounting bolts with the wrench.
2. Reconnect all components that were disconnected--bolt the power-steering pump in place and connect the air cleaner outlet tube using its clamp.
3. Lower the car off the axle stands and reconnect the battery cable

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.

First disconnect your negative battery cable, then remove the air cleaner outlet tube.
Remove three starter mounting bolts, then raise and support the vehicle. Disconnect starter solenoid wires and remove starter motor, reverse procedure to reinstall.

Car won't start focus is clicking


I wonder if your battery is really in an excellent shape. The way you described seem to be non sufficient voltage for the starter solenoid to engage completely. Make a quick observaton by leaving the headlight on while cranking the engine. If no significant drop on the headlight brightness. Then your battery is assumed to be good. (a cold crank voltage shouldn't below 10V) Then the remained items to work with is either the solenoid or the starter or both. I believe the solenoid is piggy pack on the starter. Most autopart stores would test it for free of charge.
