first you diconnect the battery...Now when you get under neath the vechile and see the starter you will see 2 bolts(5/8 is the size i think) the one at the bottom is a stud...thats a bolt with a nut on it take that one out and at the top there is a bolt at the same size...but this bolt is the hardest to get at because you cross over is in the way but you dont need to take that out of the way just get a deep 5/8 scocket and it will come off easier....this is how i did it and i did it probadly 10 times now since i had mine i had it for about 3 yrs now.....GOOD LUCK....

Replacing a starter in a '92 DakotaI changed the starter in my '92 Dakota Sport, V6, 4x4 a couple years ago. Here's how I did it: 1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. 2. The steering shaft will be in the way, but it has a coupler that can be disconnected so the shaft ends can be moved out of the way. 3. Disconnect the wiring from the starter and remove the two starter mounting bolts. The lower bolt was easier to get at from under the vehicle. Pull the starter up and out toward the front of the vehicle. It has to be removed from within the engine compartment, not from underneath the vehicle.

Installation is the reverse of removal. Getting the old starter out was relatively easy, getting the new one in was more difficult as there isn't much space to work. I remember using a swivel and two short extensions on the ratchet to tighten the upper mounting bolt.
