try going to the parts store and buying a chilton manual for the make and model of your vehicle. It has diagrams and step by step instructions. It will cost somewhere around 30 dollars of so and if you ever need to fix any other part of the same vehicle you will have it at your fingertips.
Disconnect the negative terminal on the battery. And this is What Chiltons doesn't tell you:I've done it too many times. You probably need to remove the pipe from the manifold and pull it towards the front of the engine until it comes off the male end of the muffler in front of the catalytic converter. The rest is smooth sailing because you can't get the starter out of there without it being removed. The bolts on the manifold are tricky and may requre plenty of liquid wrench, patience and a double jointed socket. These starters and the whole damn car were notorious for electrical problems. Improve your chances by having the starter rebuilt by a professional shop, you'll save money and they'll spec it according to your car, not like the generac crap you get at Auto whatever.Getting the starter out requires a little twisting and turning but it does come out.Finally, buy a grounding wire and attach it to the ground bolt on the starter on top of the existing ground wire. Take the other end and secure it to the frame of the car, doesn't have to be long, drill a hole or find an existing hole and put a safety washer and bolt on it, securing it to the frame. I sanded the area down a little to have a good contact. The aluminum blocks on these vehicles don't ground well and it's worth the extra effort. The poor grounding can lead to failures in the ignition switch, alternator, battery, etc. Good luck.
