I have an 03 with a 2 bolt starter. Bought it new and I have been dealing with the bolts loosening on it for a while now.Typically after about a year or so. So today after starting it I could tell from the noise it was loose. I go under and see that one bolt is gone, the other loose. I run down to ford and pick one up from the crooks come home and put it in. Last thing I wanted, The threads have stripped out! What do I do? I was told to use a heli coil kit. Is that what I should do? Is there a better way/fix?



Thanks
Matt

I would say tap it out with a slightly larger size and then replace with new bolts WITH lock washers.
