Put car on ramp or jack-up and support with safety stands. Then disconnect the neg. battery cable. Under the car there is a bolt and a wire connected to the starter. Remove and save to reinstall on new starter. There are 2 nuts attaching the starter to the flywheel. 1 you can see right at the bottom. Loosen it up but don't fully remove until the top one is off. Here comes the fun part. I worked for the top down. Remove the air intake, breather. A bunch of 10 mm bolts If you haven't changed your air filter lately

now is a good time so have a new air filter handy. Do it after you changed the starter. Now reach in an extension with a swivel socket works great. you might have to take off that connector on top of the transmission, that little gray box to get access to the bolt.

It is 180 deg. from the lower bolt. If the lower 1 was at 6 o'clock this 1 is at 12 o'clock. Look at the bolt pattern on the new starter as a guide. Once you loosen that up and remove. Go back under the car and remove that loose bolt. Wiggle out the old starter and be careful, there a a thin metal shim on these starters, you must remove from the old and put on the new one. Work the new starter into place make sure the shim is positioned correctly and rebolt the bottom,don't fully torque it up until the top is in. Then go back and torque the bottom. Then install the push on wire and rebolt the main starter cable to that center copper stud. put back all the parts removed and then the battery cable. Say good luck and start that engine. You should be smiling. If it is your first time I would give a couple of hours for the job, but once you do it. The next time is 45 mins. good luck. Steve9174536337
