How do i change out the battery on my 2007 denali. what is keeping it locked into position


there is usually a small bolt that holds it in place with a rubber block the rubs along the bottom of the battery. Take a flash light and look for the small bolt at the base of the battery,,You need like a 1/4" drive socket with a 6-9" extention on the socket to reach it..Just unscrew the bolt and the bolt and the block will come loose,you just lift it up and out of the way. Remove old battery and reinstall new one in reverse order.

How do i change ignition switch on my 19890 ford ranger xl 4x4 2.9L V6


Rotate the lock cylinder to the lock position. On tilt columns, remove upper extension shround by squeezing at 6 and 10 o'clock and popping free of the retainer plate at 3 o'clock.

Remove 2 shroud halves by removing the screws. Disconnect the electrical connector from the ignition switch. Drill out the 2 break-off bolt heads that hold the switch to the lock cylinder using a 1/8" drill bit.

Remove bolts (may have to use a screw extractor). Disengage ignition switch from actuator pin and remove switch.

To Install:
Rotate the key to the run position. Install switch by aligning holes on switch base with hole in the cylinder housing. You may have to move it a little to get the actuator pin to line up.


Install new break-off bolts untill the heads shear off. Connect electrical connector to switch.Then reverse the removal procedure to complete.

Starter replacment instructions


1. The Upper Bolt is easily accessed from the front of the vehicle going OVER the right side of the radiator. It is partially hidden by a black brace. There is a black ground wire going to where a nut(s) are located. This first nut will allow you to take off the ground connection, however the bolt has another nut further in (to the left) which is totally hidden. Remove this first nut.
2. After the first nut is off, remove the ground wire, then using a deep socket 15mm socket remove the second nut which is welded/attached to the bolt.
3. Go under the vehicle to remove the wires from the Starter. The first wire is the positive cable (should be red) attached on the solenoid portion of the starter. Remove the nut and lock washer and detatch the wire. The second wire (single small gauge) goes to the solenoid and is connected using a slide lock - press release connection. It is difficult to see the slide lock and the press release located on the top side of the connection. Slide the red slide lock out and press the release, and pull out the connection straight out. Do not force it, or it may damage the connector. Note the placement of the bottom bolt position on the Starter. DO NOT remove the two (2) small, but long connector bolts on the wire connection end of the starter.
4. Remembering the noted postion: remove the lower 15mm bolt from the Starter. The bolt head is located on the back side of plate moving towards the left side of the Van. It is easily accessed from underneath in front of the transmission. Near the end of removing this bolt, support the starter or it will fall out.
5. Remove the Starter, noting the position of the starter. There should be a separate starter facing plate. If if didn't come down with the starter check up in the starter to flywheel opening and remove the plate.
6. Installation is Reverse of above. The facing plate is a little tricky getting it to stay in place. By starting with the bottom bolt it is easier, Make sure you continuously support the Starter in position to save crossthreading the bolt or starter. Hand tighten only the bottom bolt as youwnat to be able to turn the starter slightly to get the top bolt in.
Starter Bolts are tigthen to 35 ft-lbs.
