Question 1999 ford contour starter

I need to remove my starter on a 4 cyclinder 1999 contour. I am having trouble removing the wires. No way to get wrench or socket to the little nut. Even if I get it off how do I do put the wires back on. Do I need to anything besides the air intake.

You will have to find a way to get those nuts off so the wiring can come off the terminals.

Here's the steps for removal if you have the 2.5L engine:

Remove the engine air cleaner assembly.

Remove the fuel feed and return lines from the support bracket located on the accelerator cable bracket, and remove the fuel line bracket.

On vehicles equipped with a automatic transaxle, remove the gear selector and the gear shift cable bracket from the transaxle.

Remove the air cleaner support bracket from the engine and transaxle mount.

Remove the nuts on the starter terminals and remove the cables from the terminals.

Remove the starter motor-to-transaxle case retaining bolt at the rear of the starter.

Remove the two starter retaining bolts and carefully lift the starter from the transaxle case while disengaging the alignment pins.
