"How do you replace a starter in a 2002The starter is a small electric motor and gear assembly attached to the bell housing on the right side of the engine block, just beneath the exhaust manifold. It is held on by three bolts. It has two electric connections to a small sub-assembly (solenoid) attached to the side of it.

Remove the heavy, red connection from the solenoid. This runs directly to the positive terminal of the battery. Remove the other, smaller electrical connection that runs to an ignition relay mounted on the firewall on the passenger side, right under the windshield wiper. That relay is under a removable cover. You remove both of these wires at the starter solenoid.

Then there are three bolts that hold the starter to the bell housing. The bottom two are easy to reach. One of them also has a ground connector attached to it. The top bolt is more difficult to reach, and you cannot see it from underneath the truck. If you use enough socket extensions to get the head of your ratchet past the end of the starter motor, you can guide the socket onto the top bolt head with your fingers by feel.

I found it best to remove the top, difficult bolt first, and then move on to the next bolt, and finish with the easiest. This lets you hold the weight of the starter while removing the last bolt. If you do it the other way around, the starter 'sags' on the top bolt and complicates removing it.

Then, position the new starter in the same location, and reverse the procedure.

If the heater is not working in your Eddie Bauer edition Ford Expedition, your heater core is probably junk and needs to be replaced.

In a 2000 Eddie Bauer Ford Expedition, the computer module is located under the dashboard and to the left of the brake pedal. The module should be cream-colored.
