Disconnect the battery. Remove all the bolts around the top plate that sits on top of the engine (there's 10-12 of them). Set that piece aside. Remove the four bolts holding the fuel injector assembly down (those bolts are about 7 inches long!). Get a 24 inch piece of 2x4 ready because you're going to slowly and gently lift the left side of the fuel injector assembly and then lay the 2x4 under the assembly but on top of the engine. Put a light down in the exposed area and there is the starter. Reach in very carefully with a 10 mm socket and remove both mounting bolts as well as the two bolts that hold the two wires onto the starter. Out it comes. It is a very small, lightweight starter and you'll have no trouble. Have it checked however, because more often than not, the problem with not starting is NOT the starter but rather the neutral/safety switch at the end of your shift cable on the top of the transmission!!!
