I have a 1999 mercury cougar v6 2.5 liter engin and it needed a two bolt lower control arm on the passenger side

NO Chevy did not make a 3 bolt starter. It only requires 2 bolts.

It should be the same as for a 2002 Mercury Cougar which is answered in WikiAnswer under the Question; " How to remove alternator from a 2002 Mercury Cougar 2.5L V6." The 2000 Cougar may be different by having an upper alternator BOLT. If it does, and you can't lift the bolt out (after fully loosening the bolt), lower the alternator and you can, then, lift the bolt out. When you begin to install the alternator (attach the power wire, and the wire connector) place the BOLT in the upper hole in the alternator, and THEN, raise the alternator to install.

Loosen the motor mount retaining bolt in your 1997 Mercury Cougar. Jack the engine up a few inches. Remove the retaining bolt and the motor mount bushing. Put the new bushing into the motor mount and reverse the process.

The 2000 Mercury Cougar (V6) came equipped in two tires sizes of 205/60/15 and 215/50/16. The offset and backspacing vary by wheel type (factory or aftermarket). The bolt pattern is 4-108 for this model.

The starter is mounted on the passenger side of the transmission. It has one wire connected to it (with a small bolt) and there are two bolts holding the starter in.

Go to your local auto parts store and ask them for an easy out bolt extractor.

Disconnect the battery. Unhook the starter wires. Remove the two bolts on the starter. Take the starter out, and bolt the new one in. Reverse the procedure to finish the installation.

There is no way to fix a catalytic converter for a 1987 Mercury Cougar, since it is a sealed and unrepairable item. Once it goes bad, you must jack up the car, unbolt the old converter, then put a new one in its place and bolt it in.

User Avatar

Simply unbolt the old one and bolt the new one on, there is no trick to it.

In the back of the engine one bolt is hidden under the air box

All '99-'02 cougars came with 4x108 bolt pattern. This is a bit of an odd ball size, but not too hard to find.

Disconnect the Caprices battery. Remove the wires from the starter, then unbolt the unit. Pull the starter out, then put the new one in the hole. Bolt up the new starter, connect the wiring, then reconnect the battery.

On the bottom of the transmission one nut one bolt make sure you remove the battery cable.

when i did the clutch in my 1988 non turbo supra we had to take off the starter it was a pain it took us six hours just to get the one bolt off we tried using extension and everything we finaly got it off by going the inside of the car through where the gear shifter is put a couple extensions on it have one person hold it on the bolt and the other go at it with an impact driver by far the most difficult job i ve done on my car is that one starter bolt good luck

The 1997 Chevy Cavalier starter bolt size is 9/16 by 3.5" inches long. You will need three starter bolts to secure the starter.

User Avatar

No...It will be a little difficult but you don't need to take the solenoid off.

User Avatar

Bolt the starter into the starter position. There will be three starter retaining bolts. Connect the cables to the front of the starter.

User Avatar

(1) You must first remove the bracket clamp that retains the wiring harness to the trnsmission. (2) Disconnect the starter wires from the starter and that should give you the clearance you need to get a wrench on the upper starter bolt. (3) then remove the lower bolt.

yes just make sure u get the right bolt pattern and smaller tires some places will do the mounting for u and it will all work out right

No there is not a shim between the starter and the bolt holder unless someone has put the wrong starter on and had to rig it up to make it engage properly.
