The haynes manual isnt really much help with actually locating the starter. I know because i got the haynes manual to try and find the starter on my girlfriends 2000 focus. It tells you how to change it but not where it is located. I just changed the starter so ill give you the rundown. Underneath your car right where the headers connect to the exhaust there will be a black metal plate with 4 bolts about 4 inches wide and 6 inches long. The starter is behind that barely visible. Once you remove that metal plate you can clearly see the bottom of the starter with the starter solenoid on top. There are 3 bolts on the starter but you will only see the head of one bolt from the bottom. DO NOT remove that bolt first. Go to the top of the engine and remove the air hose from the air filter box. You will see 2 bolts that connect into the right side of the starter brace. It is a very tight space but once you get the bolts off now you can go underneath the car and hold the starter while you remove the last bolt. On my 2000 focus the wires dont give you much room for it to drop. My starter only dropped about an inch so you wont have much room to work with the wires which are located on the top of the starter at the right side of the solenoid. The wires lead into a plastic harness with 2 nuts on the right side of the plastic wire harness. Good Luck.

What ever store you buy the starter at they should be able to show you, if not follow the red cable from your battery and its at the other end.

SOURCE: i have a 2000 ford focus SE i need to know where

Hello, There is a Recall for the fuelpump and the Warranty is for 10 Years. It is Recall 03n01. You will need to give the Vin# to the Dealer. I believe with a complete failure, you may be compensated for the tow. It would not hurt to ask about it.

Where is the alternator fuse located on my 2009 ford focus?


There is no "fuse" per se, however there is a fusible link built into the cable that leads to the alternator (from the battery & starter).
If this is blown, there is no connectivity between the battery, starter and alternator.

Is there a plate with 4 bolts under the car that has to be removed?


the starter is kind of hard to get at and you may have to get it out from under the vehicle but it is located at the back of the intake manifold on the drivers side its kinda tucked up under the intake near the trans mission.

2000 ford focus se won't start but makes clicking sound.


Possible causes:
1. The STARTER is giving out.

2. The BATTERY is weak and doesn't have the cranking amps it needs.

A local autoparts store will normally test these two things for free.
