there are two bolts one is under the Power Steering pump and a pain to get to it takes a 15 mm deep well and a long handled ratchet, then you have to use a wrench when the ratchet bottoms out. Once that is removed jack up car and on the bottom side of the starter ther is another bolt either a 17 mm or 15 mm. this one is pretty easy to remove. then drop starter and take off 2 nuts that hold on wires. make sure to put wires back on the same terminals they came off of or the car wont run and you will have to pull starter again
the easiest way is to remove the oil filter and install the starter from the bottom of the car I removed the intake manifold to allow easier acces to the starter.
The starter is located under the intake manifold. Remove the oil/air seperator, remove the fuel injector rail, remove the intake manifold to expose the starter. the starter is held on by two bolts(15mm) bottom on starter side, top on flywheel side. Don't forget to remove neg. battery cable and starter wireing. Install in reverse order.
