disconnect the battery unbolt the lead wire remove the other terminal wire (small plastic connector) - careful not to break it or the terminal unbolt the three mounting bolts while holding the starter

use anti-seize on the mounting bolts bolt the starter in by holding it and turning the mounting bolts evenly - do each to make sure the starter goes on evenly. Only tighten when the three bolts are near the end. Tighten each one at a time until snug. Bolt the lead wire on Put dielectric grease on the the plastic connector and push it on the terminal reconnect the battery start vehicle

The 2004 Ford Ranger starter is located on the right hand side of the engine. The starter will be at the back of the engine.
