It's kindof tricky i just put a new starter in my 1986 2.0 cavalier rs your going to want some wheel ramps it's hard to work where the starter is located without them anyway in the very front bottom of the motor is the starter mine was in a tight spot the exaust pipe went around mine you will have some wires running from the seloniod and battery make sure that you don't get them mixed up there are two main bolts 15 mm i think and another going into a bracket at the other end disconnect the wiring pull the two main bolts and the bracket it's going to be a pain working around the exaust pipe I think there is a couple other wires you will have to disconnect to one is the ground wire that bolts onto the motor if your car don't start after installing the new starter clean up the connecter with some sand paper after pulling the starter out check the teeth on the new starter there supposed to line up a certain way or it will defenetly decrease the life of your new starter theres usually directions with a new starter if your putting in a usedone the best thing i can say is the starter teeth should have two teeth around the one tooth on the gear of the engine another thing to is you will probibly haveto put shims in with the starter your installing they come with a new starterif the starter your putting in is used keep the old shim from your old starterthe shim fits between the starter and engine where the two main bolts go in.

good luck i installed mine without any wheel ramps there was hardly any clearenceif you want head room get some ramps
