Used 12 drive 13mm socket with 20 of extensions, a swivel and a bright flashlight. I tried turning it every which way and it will not come out. You may also get to it through the wheel well by using an extension and a swivel.
Im not a penguin and dont want to be out in the cold any longer than i must. L f150 nothing happens when i turn the key, no click, nothing. You just never know what kinds of changes have been made in the factories & you may come into something new.
Can i pull it out and take to a place like autozone? I wouldnt have a clue how to test it, unless i just have to use the battery? (scary thought. I am unable to fit the starter out of the truck. Cranked and i can hear the starter whine, but not seeming to engage anything.
It helps to have a spotter stick their head in the passenger side wheel well, with a light they can guide you right to it. You said you replaced the starter relay - if you have the anti-theft module then you will also have an additional starter interrupt relay that may be at fault or was triggered by the anti-theft module. I had to take the solenoid off to get to 2 of the bolts.
Ground bolt had two nuts on it tried taking off the second nut and the whole bolt came off. The new starter has a wire already on the solenoid that readsdo not remove this lead, crimp the wire and heat shrink do i really need to do this? Why cant i just use the same wires that were attached to the old starter? I left the wire in and put a heat shrink on the tip. Hi i was wondering if you have heard of the housing that you attach starter to cracks a piece actally broke out.
Looks to me the only way to remove it would be from underneath the vehicle and the stabilizer bar is directly in the way. You can tell that one apart because its terminal is bent at almost a 90 degree angle. Will try the hammer with something long enough to reach the starter. Once i got the three mounting bolts off and freed up the harness, mine came out, bringing it to my neighbor to test. I did not know they even made one that size but it worked perfect.

If you are going for best contents like myself, simply go to see this site all cdebdgdeddeegbe i got the 2 bolts out but the top is just not coming loose. I too have to change my starter in the cold today. Not true a 3 inch extension and a deep well 13 reaches it with my snap on set bottom and side bolts were simple and easy.
Exchanging the starter took me about 45 minutes, including reconnecting the leads. With the wheel off, you can get your hand up in there pretty good. Im not a penguin and dont want to be out in the cold any longer than i must. Most people go through the wheel well when they cant get to that bolt. Have no idea how we would have gotten to them otherwise.
Turns out it was the starter causing my problems after all. What year is your f150? You take the second bolt out the same way as you would the 3rd - with an extension. My guess is it is a bad starter, even if it was new - it happens. Mind u this is if your working on floor stands and dont have the luxury of a lift, remember 13mm deep 38 socket dont use a 12 set cause it wont fit. I assume its out and in the garage you can take an ok battery and jumper cables and put the neg to the body of the starter unit, and the positive (may need something to extend the jumper cable end) ( or a jumper wire.

After i got everything hooked back up, i connected the battery and i heard to starter come on (im pretty sure it was the starter).

Installation of the 93 grand marquis (36000 mile vehicle with rusted out frame)) used starter was done in about one hour.
