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: 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.

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.

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

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.

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

Jennifer Zimmers: 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.

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: 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.

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.

Sarah Roth: My dad just replaced mine and he said you were right on the bloody knuckles. Also, I heard him say words I've never heard him say. He said that was one of the most brutal starters he's ever encountered. He has been a mechanic for over 35 years. Ford really needs to rethink that design! He got it all fixed and busted every knuckle doing it!

hoohoohoblin: You're welcome.

hoohoohoblin: My hands were pretty beat up after doing it. It only goes in there one way, and it's almost impossible, but it can be done.

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

tomp64: I have to do that same job today... maybe i'll be looking for a lake instead.

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.

weirdguywithaknife: This video is QUITE helpful, thankyou.

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

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.

hoohoohoblin: Let me know how it goes. It ain't easy, and there will be blood, but you can do it.

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.

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.

Evan-Patrick: Who DDOSed the site? Or do you not know
BlueonGoldZ: This video doesn't mean anything. In the game such as in a campaign, you're going to be facing far more enemy, armed with cannon and mortars as well as artillery, dragoons and heavy cavalry. Line infantry divisions will get over run and you have to keep in mind they take up a spot in your limited space army so there isn't too much room for light infantry. Maybe 2 regiments at most to harass and maybe defend flanks or weaken foot regiments before they reach your main line infantry.
