Starter replacement on 4.7? How To?
 
Does anyone have a how to or any tips on changing out the starter on a 2005 WK 4.7? I really dont want to pay a shop to do something that i am more then skilled enough to do just because its in a bad location.

I just did mine about a month ago on my 4.7 I removed the bolts from the front diff so it would drop down and rest on the a arms and it gave me the clearance to take the old starter out around the front of the oil pan and also room to install. I also found it easiest to remove the starter bolts with two long extensions and a universal swivel.

Cool thanks, What sizes are the bolts? I am assuming its better to remove the drivers front wheel as well?

I didn't remove any wheels just lower the diff down. It won't fall out on you.

As for bolt sizes it was pretty big on the diff maybe 18mm and the starter 15mm maybe.
