SOURCE: I need to remove my starter on my 98 Diamante but

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

Just did this, take the long bolt out of the passenger side engine mount, loosen the two transmission mount bolts and jack the right side of oil pan slowly, when you do this there will be enough clearance between the bell housing and frame, be sure to use a jack stand to be safe.
Put the starter motor in the space with the selonoid up and wiggle forward into position then insert bolts and hook up connections. Let the motor down, put the motor mount bolt back in, tighten transmission mount.

How to remove starter on 1997 ford f150

Welcome to Fixya

Here's the procedure:

  • 1Raise the front end of the F150 off the ground with the floor jack. Place the two jack stands under the front portion of the F150's frame and then lower the truck onto the jack stands.

  • 2

    Open the hood and disconnect the negative battery cable end from the battery using the battery wrench. Push the cable off to the side where it can't accidentally contact the battery during the repair process.

  • 3

    Climb under the front passenger side of the F150 with the socket set. Locate the starter, which bolts to the side of the engine, where the transmission bell housing meets the back side of the engine block.

  • 4

    Unbolt the starter ground wire and wiring harness using the socket set. Move the wires aside.

  • 5

    Hold the body of the starter with one hand while removing the two starter mounting bolts with the other, using a socket set to do so. Never let the weight of the starter bear down on the loose bolts.

  • 6

    Pull the starter out by hand once you have removed both of the mounting bolts. Compare the old starter to your replacement, making sure they are physically identical before proceeding with the installation of the replacement unit.

  • 7

    Hold the replacement starter in position and thread the mounting bolts through the starter flange and into their mounts. Tighten them down with the socket set. Remember to never let the weight of the starter hang on the loose bolts.

  • 8

    Attach the ground wire and starter wiring harness in reverse of disconnection.

  • 9

    Lower the F150 off the jack stands with the floor jack and then reconnect the negative battery cable using the battery wrench.

  • Thank you for using Fixya!

    Is there any sound when the key is turned? The solenoid may be stuck, and a light tap with a hammer may free it up. The starter is located on the engine block.
