I know what you mean... I hate that. Sometimes it's just a matter of getting the right length socket extention or other tool. Other times you just have to remove other hardware, such as the manifold or a motor mount, to get to the bolt. Good luck.

Kryptonitefusion (03/11/07): I don't remember excatly but you should just need a long enough extention and probably something to hold the nut in order to loosen the bolt. if that's too hard i think u might want to try lowering the transmission...i don't recommend removing the intake manifold or lowering the tranny, u shouldn't need to.

Does any one know how to get the back starter bolt off on a 99 dodge grand caravan or have a diagram of the removal since you can not get a socket or wrench up in there?

Not sure what you mean by back bolt ? There are 2 bolts holding the starter on. They both screw into the starter from the back. there is one on the bottom and accessed from underneath, and the one on the top is accessed from the top. Unhook the battery ground and remove the air box to gain access to the top bolt.

How do I remove a starter on a 2003 Ford Expedition?

First remove the battery cables from the battery. Remove the electrical connections to the starter and label for replacement. There are 3 bolts - 13mm. The bottom bolt is also the ground terminal, therefore you will need a deep socket for that bolt. The other two are accessable ideally with about a 7" extension to your socket wrench. The top bolt is on the top of the starter and I could fit my hand up there to feel it and place the socket. The 3rd bolt is between the bottom and top bolts. Remove the 3 bolts and the starter falls right out. I replaced with a remanufactured, lifetime warranty starter from Pep Boys for about $120.
