disconnect the negative battery terminal then there r 2 bolts holding the starter in place....remove them and then disconnect the electrical connections on the left side of the starter (remember where they go on the new one) then hook up the new starter in reverse (very easy job)

easy? There are three bolts and the third one is a very difficult to get to. good luck, i have spent three hours so far and the starter motor is still there; i need to remove the tranny but the starter is in the way i will update you all later

I'm with the second poster.. there is nothing easy about changing the starter... After fighting cussing and becoming incensed by the stupid designers of this vehicle I finally bought a gear wrench. Even that took about 20 minutes of micro inch by micro inch of turning to finally get that third bolt.. (unnecessarily difficult job)
