The starter is located under the intake manifold. You will need to remove the EGR tube and the intake air tube from the throttle body. Remove the bolts around the perimeter of the intake manifold and from the passenger side of the engine compartment you can lift the intake up far enough to gain access to the starter. Remember to disconnect the battery negative terminal first. I have used a bungee cord to hang the intake in the air while working on the starter. Remove the two wires leading to the starter and then the two 13mm bolts securing the starter to the engine block. Pull the starter out from under the intake manifold and install the new starter in the reverse order. The intake manifold gaskets are reusable.
