Just follow the cables to your strater and take off the nuts holding them in place. You will have a negative ground going to the firewall. Take that bolt off then follwo the smaller lead off from your positive to the firewall and remove that. Reach through your fenderwell and you will see where the cables are clamped to to a bracket that is bolted to the frame. Unbolt that one and your done. Takes about 30 minutes.
