To change a starter in a Ford Windstar, one must first disconnect the battery. The wiring to the starter also needs to be disconnected at this point. Finally, depending on the year and motor, you must remove the applicable retaining bolts that mount the starter. Install in reverse order

Behind the engine of the Ford Windstar you will find the starter. It is located about 5 feet back from the front of the car in the center. You will need to jack the car up and remove the starter electric connector with a screwdriver and the two retaining bolts. Install the new one by bolting it back in.

Disengage negative terminal on the battery to free from bad shock from the starter. Raise the vehicle using jack. Locate the starter, remove the rubber cover and take off the bolt. Unscrew the two or three bolts. Remove the starter, and replace the new one.
