How to install starter on 2006 ford focus

A Starter: depending on the make and model vehicle, could take up to 1 hour to replace if you are a novice mechanic but the time also depends on weather or not there are any obstructions that must be removed before you get to the Starter. Some Starters require that you remove a front tire first, and some require that you remove from under the vehicle. Some vehicle Starters can be removed from under the hood without laying on your back. This is extremely easy for the novice mechanic to do. Click on the following link. This video will show you the simplicity and the magic.

How to replace starter

Disconnect battery. Jack up vehicle on the drivers side and support. remove cables from starter. Remover the 2 bolts from the starter. Slide starter towards the motor mount cut the wheels to the left and lower starter throught the linkage. Reverse to reinstall. Sometimes easier if wheel is removed. I use a lift and have not had to do it this way for many years. If this is a v-6 engine and I assume it is you MUST lower the exhaust pipe from the exhaust manifold on the drivers side. Sometimes you need to remove the complete pipe. I usually remove the rubber hangers and let it hang. Tight fit. Be VERY careful with the bolts on the exhaust manifold. This is NOT for the novice.

Remove starter 1997 gran marquis

Good luck! Three 10mm bolt hold the starter in place. you can see two of them, but the third is on top, and will seriously test your patience and exorcise your vocabulary. I have been successful in removing the starter solenoid while the starteris still in the car, which allows you some clearance to remove the third bolt. Otherwise, the exact length combination of socket and extentions on a 1/4" drive ratchet is required over the top of the starter. Make sure you disconnect the battery before you begin.

I have to change my starter, is it too hard for a novice on a 4x4? also,where exactly is it located and what does it look like?

It is not hard for a novice to do it, first you need to remove the lead from the battery so you will not cause a short cut. Than you have to remove the plastic or metal sump cover/guard so you will see your engine from underneath. Usually the starter motor in Japanese cars is situated in front but some have it in the rear of engine. A starter if it is original Denso looks like the one on website But if it was replaced might look like this Anyway most of the times 99% the leads are same for all starters so you just need to remove them from the old one, untight it from the block put the new one in, put the leads back on the new starter, make sure everything is tight but not overtighten, than put the leads back on the battery and start your engine:) Remember not to mixup the wires, most of teh times it is not possible because of different sizes but be careful. Good luck

Need to replace the starter on a 1994 Geo Prizm

starters are actually pretty easy. usually just 2 or 3 bolts holding it on. Just disconnect the battery first. Remove the bolts and the starter and then installation is reversal of removal.
Hope this helps,

I need to replace a starter on a '92 Buick LeSabre. I'm a fairly novice mechanic and was wondering if this is a fairly simple job. Are there any other things in the way, or can I easily remove the stater?

unhook the battery

remove the two or three bolts holding the starter on. pay attention to lengths of the bolts so they are put back in the same holes

take the wires off the old starter one at a time and attach them to the new starter (so you are sure which connector they go on)

bolt on the new starter.

hook up the battery and you are done.


Please take a momemt to rate this solution.. thanks
