I need a step by step installation guide a 2000 Ford

Customer Question

I need a step by step installation guide for installing a 2000 Ford Excursion Positive Battery Cable for V8 7.3L Turbo Diesel with Single Alternator Ford YC3Z-14300-CB.
I know it seems simple to just place the new cable where the old one was... but I have physical limitations and really need to see what it will take - where connections are located, what size connections, tools... so I can determine if I can reach everything.
Also, could you answer one simple question? can this be installed from above, or will I need to work under the engine?

Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site.


Normally a basic socket/wrench set is all that is needed to replace the battery cable(s). You will want to get to the lower end from under the vehicle though.


If you accept my additional service request for your email address, you can give me your email in a private info box and I'll send you the instructions with some pictures in a PDF file, the file is rather large.

You will just have to accept the additional service offer and ENTER your email address in the “ENTER CONTACT INFO” section so that I can see it, Thanks
