Hey Deborah==Remove the neg battery cable then the wires on the solonoid. Then take out the 2 bolts that hold it on. goodluckJoe

Disconnoct the negative battery terminal. After the car is up on appropriate support so one can work under it, the four bolts, 10MM, that hold the torque converter cover on must be remover and the cover removed. Then, put blocking or a small hydraulic floor jack under the starter and remove the front bolt that holds the heat shield to the starter. Then remove the two bolts,15MM, on the gear end of the motor. Slowly lower the starter down until the wiring can be removed. Be careful the stud(s) stays in place when the nut is removed. (Also when re-installing the new starter). Reverse the process to install the new starter.
