Easy compared to many vehicles. When under hood on passenger side look down under side of engine. You can see the starter and solenoid easily. Remove positive battery cable from battery, then feel around starter for quick connect terminal on top of the solenoid that supplies power to the low amperage relay coil when key is turned and carefully remove wire. You can then easily feel the 2 large bolts that hold starter to engine near flywheel. Remove them, pull starter and after carefully (on the solenoid) unscrewing nut and disconnecting large positive cable from battery, simply replace new one in reverse order. It is best to get a lifetime warranty rebuilt starter and new solenoid as one unit. Make SURE you see that the ground strap held by one of the large starter bolts is put back as you found it when replacing that bolt.

The main thing is to check starter before and even after pulling from vehicle, before instaling new one as often the problem is NOT the starter or solenoid but in the battery cable connection, starter cable connection, the cable itself, interlock relays, switches, etc. in ignition circiut or the ignition wiring itself.

The starter is located beneath the throttle body. Remove the intake tube, then the starter bolts can be removed and the starter replaced.

In general, remove negative cable from battery, remove electrical wires from starter, remove bolts holding starter in place, remove starter. Replace starter in reverse order.
