Did this video help you?

chad huth: Horrible got the SOHC SPI Starter is disconnected but it won't come out just sitting up there stuck by the exhaust Any1?

hoohoohoblin: Changing the starter in this car will be the most difficult thing you do in your entire life. It is awful!

arturogonzalez1218: freaking focus! I'm about 4 hours in and have encountered a bolt that won't come off! freak this car and the person who designed the mechanics

hoohoohoblin: If your car has the Ztec engine, it should be a lot easier than it is on the SOHC engine on my car. A simple socket set and some flat wrenches should be all you need.

Erick Larrea: I am about to attempt to replace my starter on my '04 Ford Focus. If I could get an exact list of what tools I have to use... I would appreciate it.

Timothy Smothers: Man my clothes were destroyed and the oil and grease was matted in my hair, I looked like Wiley coyote after he gets blown up. And I definitely had some Fat Tire ale to drink the pain away.

hoohoohoblin: Ha ha! Anyone reading this who hasn't done the job may think you are exaggerating, but it really was that bad when I did it too, minus the mosquitoes.

Timothy Smothers: Okay. I came here to announce that after the worst 10 hours of my life, grease, grime, and hordes of mosquitoes, blood scrapes, bangs, pinches, cuts, and extreme muscle fatigue. Plus 150.00 I did this job. F*ck this. It was hell and consumed my whole day off. Thanks for posting this video it was a big help. I will answer any questions and give tips to whoever needs it.

hoohoohoblin: You're welcome! I'm glad I could help.

hoohoohoblin: There aren't any bolts. It pressure fits with pegs that go into rubber grommets. Just pull up and it will come out.

hoohoohoblin: You're welcome.

weirdguywithaknife: This video is QUITE helpful, thankyou.

hoohoohoblin: Yes! I think they designed it to be installed before the engine goes into the car, which works great on the assembly line, but not so great in the driveway when it needs to be replaced.

uzerap: A bloody awful job. Whoever dreamed up this design should be sentenced to an eternity of removing and installing starters on 2001 Focus SPI engines.

MrDrizzle901: Does anyone no qere the ground wire goes thats above the top two bolts im confused

hoohoohoblin: This one is frustrating because it's a really simple job, but it's in a location that's almost impossible to get to.

cuzuman: I have a 2001 Ford Explorer sport. and there are things I can do and things I can't do, Luckily, I know this guy who knows Fords In and out. and helps me out most of the time.

hoohoohoblin: No. I was able to get the starter in and out from underneath the car without removing any parts of the engine or exhaust, but it was a really tight fit and no fun whatsoever. I also have some cool new scars.

hoohoohoblin: I have those same scars. It is possible to do, but just barely. It helps if you have small hands.

Jenny Wren: I'll be spending the duration of my evening cursing the engineer that thought putting the top bolt under a bracket and making it darn near impossible to remove was a good idea. *grumble* Looks like I'm adding a few new scars to my knuckles and the tops of my hands tonight.
