Changing a starter in a 1985 Pontiac Sunbird is not very difficult. The car will first need to be jacked up. After the car is jacked up, locate the starter. The wires will need to be taken off the starter and labeled so they can be reattached to the new starter. The starter is then taken down by using a ratchet to take of the bolts. After the starter is taken off, the new one can be put on.

Disconnect the battery. The vehicle will probably have to be raised to reach the starter. The starter has two or three bolts holding it in, and wiring attached. Remove the wires remembering where to put them back. Remove the bolts and pull starter out.
