i'm almost certain its the same as changing a starter on a 93 tercel that i did a few days ago...VERY easy! well, it should be located under the intake manifold towards the back of the engine...there's just two bolts and a nut you have to loosen to get it off...the nut needs 10mm socket and i forgot but i think the two bolts are either the same or 12mm...take out the air filter first so you can remove the starter easier and you can see it better as well...looking at the new starter you boght to replace the old one helps as well, so you can see how the bolt pattern is and estimate where the bolts sre in the engine bay...what i did was: 1) disconnect the battery! or you'll get shocked! 2)jack up car and went underneath...there's a black rubber boot that is over a wire that is connected to the starter once you're under the car remove the boot so you can see the 10mm bolt and disconnect that 3)remove air filter assembly 4)find the two bigger bolts (i think they're 12mm but they could be 10mm) and unbolt those, look at new starter to guesstimate where they'd be...the bolt heads should be facing the driver's side 5)starter should come right off, then reverse the steps to put in new starter 6)reconnect battery terminals & your done!
