Remove one battery cable, positive probably best. Remove flywheel/front transmission cover. Remove starter, 2 bolts up, may be support on end opposite flywheel. Remove 2 wires, reverse process to replace. May be 1 or more shims between starter and motor. Keeps starter from grinding on flywheel, may or may not be needed with new starter.
