    The battery is located by the right front fender. The battery is loose but cannot lift it out of the small space. Also opened the fuse box cover which allowed some additonal space but still cannot lift out. Appears they built the car after the battery was installed. Any suggestions?

Fuel tank and fuel pump removal on 1991 ford ranger


Open the hood and support it with the hood prop rod. Unhook the negative battery cable from the terminal with the battery wrench. Position the cable end away from the battery so that it cannot accidentally contact the battery during the rest if this procedure.

  • Disconnect the fuel filler neck from the side of the truck bed with the socket set. Unbolt the truck bed retainer bolts from the floor of the bed with the socket set.

  • Lift the bed up and off the Ranger's frame with the assistance of another person. Walk the truck bed off the back of the Ranger and set it off to the side.

  • Rap the rag around the tip of the screwdriver, place the tip against the fuel pump retaining ring and tap the screwdriver's handle with the rubber mallet to turn the retaining ring counterclockwise. Remove the ring by hand.

  • Disconnect the fuel pump wiring harness and fuel lines with the screwdriver. Lift the old pump out of the gas tank and insert the new pump in its place. Make sure the new pump occupies the same position and orientation the old pump had prior to removal.

  • Tighten the fuel pump retaining ring with the rag, screwdriver and mallet by rotating it clockwise. Reconnect the wiring harness and fuel lines with the screwdriver.

  • Lift the truck bed off the ground and place it back on the Ranger's frame with the assistance of another person. Make sure the fuel filler neck clears the frame and seats into the filler neck hole in the bed wall when you're lowering the bed onto the frame.

    How do you get the battery out of a 2006 Chevy Impala LT? We've removed the safety bar, unhooked the connections, taken off the foam padding. Space does not seem large enough to maneuver the battery out....


    Remove the two speed nuts that hold the fuse block in place. You will be able to lift the fuse block up and move it out of the way just a enough to lift the end of the battery up and out.

    How to replace starter?


    Turn the car off and disconnect the battery. Lift the car with a jack and place jack stands under the frame of the car. Block the rear wheels to prevent the car from rolling backwards.

    Locate the starter and remove the wires connected to it. Mark them so you know which is positive and which is negative so you can reconnect them accordingly.

    Remove the bolts holding the starter in place. There are usually two or three bolts holding the starter.

    Pull the starter out of its position and remove it from the car. Some other parts may need to be loosened or removed for the starter to be removed from the car. Remember what parts are removed or loosened.

    Put the new starter in the car by installing it the same way the old starter was removed. Tighten the bolts slightly, connect the wires to the starter and then tighten the bolts completely.

    Replace any other parts in the car that were removed or loosened. Lower the car from the jack stands, remove the blocks from the rear wheels and reconnect the battery. Start the car to make sure everything is working properly.
