I am having my starter replaced next week and this is the video I provided my mechanic to make his job much easier. I have had this done on now two of my three Es ever owned. This is the best example I have found to make this task not so scary. Even Eric The Car Guy admitted in a latter video when doing an engine swap he should have done the starter replacement from the top. What is more impressive is this mobile mechanic does the replacement in a random parking lot.

Hi,
I go through the top and do it in the driveway.

As long as you have the right tools does not really matter were you do it.

The Service Manual calls for a new intake gasket and throttle body gasket to be used when going back together.

Not really that bad after having done it, the 2nd one is easier and faster.

I never had to remove the body color brace he takes off at the beginning of the video. I like to use new gaskets, but if the old ones seem to be good I'll save them just in case I have to do another unexpected repair. Like said once you do it, the mystery in gone and it gets easier.
