Did this video help you?

John Mc Donald: I just reinstalled the new (used) starter, I unbolted the rack-pinion bracket and moved it a side. gives a bit more room, helps a lot, that way you can remove and install the wiring from below I find it was easyer that way

John Mc Donald: Just did it, hell of a job, I am really starting to hate this car.

LCCharlie: The reason you should remove the negative cable rather than the positive is that if you were to accidentally place a tool across the positive to the car's ground you would complete the circuit, and could damage a component. It's not possible if you remove the negative.

Lemuel Seale (Focatero007): Awesome vid m8, i cant wait to have a crapty day today. Mines an 04 focus, your vid was extremely useful, thanks lots

thaddeus mcgrath: I have a 2000 and still have the original starter in it. I am really going to get reamed good when replacing it!

Lynn Blair: The Zetec version is practically the same thing. It freaking SUCKS, man!

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.
