Best Answer

1.Remove the negative cable from the battery. Working from underneath the car: 2. Label & disconnect the wires from the starter solenoid. 3.Remove the mounting bolts. You're done. Just install in reverse order. Working space is a little tight and installation seems to go a lot faster than removal.
