I replaced the starter not too long ago in my '91, V8 305. I don't know if you have a different engine but maybe you can at least get some help out of this. First of all, disconnect the battery. The starter is hooked up straight to the battery, and although 12volts DC probably won't kill you, it doesn't feel too good. Now find the starter. It's going to be found underneath the car, (you'll have to jack it up and get under it. Use jackstands!) at the bottom of the engine by the front is the flywheel. The starter should be right by the flywheel, since it's job is to start cranking it. It should be bolted in place and covering the area where the flywheel is. There is a brace held on with two bolts, and the starter itself is bolted onto the engine by 2 or three long bolts going upwards. Just unbolt these and it should drop right down, (carefull not to drop it on your face! >:o ) It might take some wiggling to get it all the way out of there anyway, If i remember correctly I think the exhaust pipes coming from the engine were in the way a little. In fact, I'm pretty sure it is right above those exhaust pipes. Well like I said, I have a V8 305, so it might be in a different spot, but once you find the thing, it's very easy just to unbolt it. Oh! very important. When you disconnect the wires from the starter, be sure to label them so you know how to hook up the new one. draw a sketch if you have to, so you know which wire goes on which connection. Then install the new one just the oposite. Well . email if you have a question.
