If you can remove the fan and shroud (comes out in one piece), that will give you more room to work -- I just removed mine from up top, and will put new one in tomorrow

Some starters are hard to get to but most of them can be removed fairly easy. Remember to remove the battery cables first.

Where is the starter located on 1994 ford explorer. is it easly accessable?

Hello gmboswell: My name is Roger and I will help. You will find the starter located on the passenger side of the motor. You will need a 13mm.socket and extension to remove the three bolts. Two are easy to see the third one is back between the starter and the oil pan. You will also need a 8mm wrench to remove the small solenoid wire. Really is not a very hard job.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the quality of the way I know the answer was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya.Roger

How do you replace a starter in a 96 buick skylark? easy to do or not?

It is not that hard and should take about 30 minutes. You will need to jack up the engine a few inches before you take the bolts loose from the starter. You will need those three inches to pull the starter out. It needs to fit between the frame and the engine block and it will come right out. After you pull the starter bolts and starter wires.

Replace starter

Get someone who knows how to do it. My husband and I did ours and it was hard. The starter was so heavy and it had more than two bolts like they say. It was so heavy.

Try Victor. I have a 95 850R, and it really is easy to remove and send it. He turned it around quickly and problem solved. Maybe he can help.

Starter on my 850

I haven't done a volvo like that, but as always starters are just a few bolts it is getting to those bolts and removing/reinstalling those bolts that is very difficult. Depending on the tools you have and the know how, it is not very difficult. You just disconnect the battery, then disconnect the wires going to the starter, sometimes after you remove the starter,but usually first. You can always pick up a haynes/chilton manual for about 20$. Or even better a factory service manual.
