Starter replacement on f150 4.6

Ford engineers obviously got a big laugh when they designed this one. The third bolt is not visible, but it is right at the top of the bolt "circle", the bottom two are visible and fairly accessible. If you have small hands, you might be able to reach a finger way up there and feel it. Because of the engine mount, you have to have a socket and extension that is exactly the right length, leaving just enough room between the end of the starter and the engine mount to attach a ratchet. Getting the socket on the bolt head is sort of a stab in the dark; push the socket and extension toward where you think the bolt is, and sometimes you can feel the socket engage the bolt head. The only other option might be to remove the exhaust manifold so you can see the bolt, but you are likely to break off at least one manifold bolt/stud, so that would be a last resort for me. Once the top starter bolt is loosened, you might have better luck finishing the removal with 1/4 inch drive tools as they take up less space.

Just need the instructions on how to change the starter on a 1998 GMC 1500 with a 4.3.

start by diconnecting the negative battery terminal, Locate the starter under the truck, should be 2 bolts verticaly though the starter. Loosen both of the bolts but do not remove them. On top of the starter their should be a large and a small wire connected disconnect both of them ( if u cant reach or see them remove the starter by taking out the 2 verticle bolts then remover wires) once bolts and wires are off the starter just wiggle it into postion and remove between the motor/ exausht and frame. Try to remember how it comes out will make it simpler to fit going back in. if thier isnt enough clearence u may have to notch the frame or loosen the motor mounts and raise the engine slight with a floor jack.,

What combinations of sockets are used to remove 3 bolt on a starter on a ford f150 pickup

I just replaced the starter on my 2001 F 150 and had to use a 13 mm socket with a swivel and 3 long extensions. I reached the top and side bolts by going through the wheel well. You have to stick your head in over the tire to see the top bolt, but it was pretty easy to reach it with this combination. The side bolt I could either reach it from under the truck or through the wheel well, through the wheel well seemed easier using the swivel and extensions

I can'nt find the top mounting bolt on my 1974 vw super beetles starter i cant seem to get to it

The starter motor is held in position by 2 bolts, the top one also secures the engine to the gearbox. The head of this bolt is a special D shape which engages into the body of the Starter motor. To undo, from the rear o/side wing, reach down behind the fan housing and you'l; find a nut (17mm) with a small amount of the bolt coming through it. Use suitable spanner to undo (turning away from you) If not been off foe a while may find that after a few revolutions all starts to turn. This just means head of bolt has become disengaged. reposition with a long screwdriver and start again.

I need to remove my starter on my 98 Diamante but I can not see all mounting bolts and I need to know where the bolts are located.

Hi, I am assuming you know where starter is. If you have found bottom bolt #14 metric socket which to reach you "must" use a medium length extention and go into it right above manifold pipe to reach it. I found if you take the guard off the starter 3 small hex head screws, it is much easier to get at all bolts (2). Whats strange is the lower bolt on starter mounts from the front and the "TOP" bolt #14 has to be reached from the rear of starter. You can not see the top bolt from bottom or top, but if you use your hand and reach up aroung the back of starter you can feel it! It took 2 of us one reaching up from bottom with just #14 deep well socket (no extention) on the rachet and feeling where to place it with rachet facing up, and person over top of engine reaching down helping to align socket on bolt, then use a piece of pipe or ? From the top place pipe extension on end of rachet and bolt will easily.
break loose. Good Luck it sounds hard but is fairly easy with right tools. kasheyboy77

Do I have to pull motor to pull starter on 97 2.0 neon cloie28

no, you can remove the bolts to starter from top drivers side under hood and remove the wires to it from passenger side by reaching under intake manifold. remove wires first and when new starter is in put wires on last. first remove battery cable from battery, let me know hqw it works.

Have you tried using a long extension? I pretty sure that is the only way to reach the bottom bolt.
