Question about 2003 Ford Taurus

I need to replace the existing starter in my 2003 Ford Taurus wagon. I know that I have to jack the car up in order to remove the old starter. What I don't know, is how many bolts need to be removed & where each of them are located.

Because of the Variety of mounting methods there are 2 to 4 bolts that should be visible as you look at the starter itself. Not counting the wiring connections. If this a sideways mounted motor with the Starter mounted on the front of the motor there will be 2 bolts holding it in place. If the motor is mounted regularly with the transmission extending under the vehicle the starter in on the rear of the motor near the firewall and will have up to 4 bolts holding it in place but most likely no more than 3. I would recommend getting a Haynes repair manual on the vehicle for more detailed instruction on removal and installation. This manual or a Chilton's manual are both available at the major Auto Parts stores and are fairly inexpensive.

Chnage starter 2003


Generally you will need to disconnect the battery ground cable, look near the oil filter and remove wires from the starter. It should be in front of the motor at the bottom in the center extreme front near the radiator but down low in the engine compartment. Remove the bolts holding the starter after wires are disconnected and replace in the same order.
