The starter on this Mercury and the similar Ford Taurus is almost front centre of the engine, just below the oil filter. I find it quite easy to change from the hood side (top) without jacking the car up. Just disconnect the battery, then remove the battery cable from the starter, then undo the 2 bolts holding it to the torque converter cover

Answer
It's simple. 2 bolts, two wires.

Disconnect the battery first to avoid shock.
  • Raise the front of the car, put jackstands underneath.
  • Crawl under the front, look up, there is the starter.
  • Remove the two wires, note their positions, one is big, the other is small.
  • Remove the two bolts, remove the starter, be careful not to let it drop on your head, it might hurt.
  • Replace with new starter,
  • install the two bolts,
  • install the two wires (they will only go on one way).
  • Lower the car, reconnect the battery, and...
... Voila! 30 minutes later, you are done! Go get an ice cream or a soda, you deserve a reward!

The most likely problem with the heater blower on your 2003 Sable is the blower resister. The resister can go bad and cause you to only have one speed.
