The starter is behind the engine and accessible from beneath the car. The mounting bolt under the car might be obscured by the starter wire, but you will be able to see it clearly enough after pulling the wire out of the way. It goes through the starter and threads into the engine (from the passenger's side of the car toward the driver's side).

The other bolt is barely accessible from the top of the car. It goes through a hole in the engine and threads into the starter (from the driver's side toward the passenger's side), so it is oriented opposite to the first bolt. You can't see it, but you can feel it by reaching your fingers in from the driver's side under the steel bracket that supports the wire harness in that area. I was able to place a 14mm socket head over the bolt by feel, then snap the handle in and remove it that way. You won't be able to get it with a wrench unless you undo a bunch of wires and hoses. Be careful; there are two bolts there, and the one for the starter is further to the rear of the car. It is identical to the other starter bolt, so you should be able to distinguish the bolt head by feel.

The starter can be wrestled down and out of the car from beneath, but it takes a few minutes of struggling and twisting. It might be easier if you remove some bracketing or hoses, but I managed without.

Good luck!

How are the shocks replaced on the e-250


You should have 1 or 2 bolts under the rear end for the rear shocks. Also, the top bolt is above the frame of the rear. For the front, there is 1 bolt above the upper spring mount which you can access with the wheel off. The bottom 2 bolts are under the lower control arm.
