1. Remove the hot wire from the battery. Move it to the side of the battery were it will not hit anything. 2. Remove the Wire in front of the starter (the starter is at the back of the engine on the bottem side on the passenger side). 3. Remove the 3 bolts (they are the 3 bigest bolts)on the starter. The starter should fall off at this time if not just pull it off. The 3 bolt go thur the starter into the transmission.

To put it back in do the reverse and start with 3 and go to 1.

Always remove ground wire. If the hot wire accidently finds power, even a little, watch out. The ground will have more trouble finding a GOOD ground.
