1996 ford countour 4 cylinder

when replacing the starter do you have to remove the alternator so you can remove the wire from the selonoide?

What does your service manual have to say?

If you don't have one (you should), check autolibrary.org below.

Please explain exactly what the problem is.Make sure you remove the battery cable ends so that you don't get shocked or burnt.I can't think of why you'd ask this,being the alternator is nowhere near the starter.The only thing i can think is the large positive cable that runs on the back side of the engine so that's why i mentioned making sure you remove battery cables.
