Have not worked on an 88 but shold be roughly like an 84,85,86 simply diconnect the battery ( safety First) then rempove the electrical connections on the starter located on top of the transmission and to the drivers side. make a mental note or label where the wires go. remove the mounting bots/nuts, remove the old starter. install in reverse order. this is a pretty straight foreward operation and even the most challenged should be able to tackle. most of auto knowledge comes from trial annd error, just try it! you'll find its about as easy as it looks subaus arent complicated. best of luck
