Question about 1996 Ford Escort 4 Door
Make sure to disconnect the battery first. The starter is located under the exhaust manifold.... top two bolts come in through the bell housing and thread into the top two holes of the starter (easily accessed top side next to the battery) the bottom bolt is threaded into the bell housing of the transmission easy to get from under the car. Two wires connect to the solonoid on the top of the starter... one is a 13 mm nut the other is a plastic clip once both of them are disconnected the starter is small enough to slide out between the engine and the rack and pinion dropping it down. reverse this to place the new one in... Hope this helps
