you have to get under unless double jointed and has third elbow on one arm...

get under and scoot your head to about the point where the rear firewall motor mount is right above/next to your head. you can reach above and see the starter, there are two bolts holding it in and an electrical harness that plugs into it. the bolts are 14mm if I remember correctly... the back one is hard to get to, need an extension and some finesse.
