follow the serpentine belt, the starter lools like a cylindrical canister, and has 2 or 3 wire coming off. It will be back and under the alternator. unscrew the bolts, remove belt from starter, take it out, replace, reposition belt, tighten bolts, and your back in business. Starters are easy. I am a complete idiot (I ofter break bolts, etc) and I do all my own starter work.

well, consitering that the starter motor isn't run off the serpentine belt, this wont help, the starter motor is on the back side of the engine, below the intake manifold. and drives the engine off of the flexplate or flywheel. pretty simple really, unhook the few wires running to it, label where you got them just to avoid confusion. then remove the 2 or so bolts that hold it the the housing, again remembering where you got them. after that the starter should just pull away. installation is hte reverse of the install

When 1997 Saturn sl starter clicks?

The single click, that you hear when the starter switch is operated, is the solenoid making the high tension connection to the starter motor. If the starter motor doesn't turn over, you will need to check both the battery feed to the solenoid and the feed from the solenoid to the starter motor (this is typically a short length of braided cable). I have known this cable to corrode through. If it has, the easiest remedy, is to replace the entire starter motor.
