4.0 STARTER REMOVAL?

OK, found my starter (thanks Steve) but now I cannot get it out. The 2 bolts are removed, but I can barely see the electrical part of the starter. I cannot see how the electronics are removed. Any help would be great! Thanks, Mike

FYI: 4.0 V6 Ranger (2001)

Red boot is off. I ended up taking my wheel and fender inner liner off and can see it much easier. Still going to be a struggle, but persistance will work (I hope)

yeah it's 3 wires going to the starter,it's might be easier for you to take the header off since thats in the way too,that's if you can't get to the wires any other way

Once the mounting bolts are out wiggle the starter out and aim the nose up to the spark plugs. You can take off your wiring easier. Then the starter should slide out. Don't forget to disconnect the battery. That big fat wire runs right to the battery.
