disconnect the battery unbolt the lead wire remove the other terminal wire (small plastic connector) - careful not to break it or the terminal unbolt the three mounting bolts while holding the starter

use anti-seize on the mounting bolts bolt the starter in by holding it and turning the mounting bolts evenly - do each to make sure the starter goes on evenly. Only tighten when the three bolts are near the end. Tighten each one at a time until snug. Bolt the lead wire on Put dielectric grease on the the plastic connector and push it on the terminal reconnect the battery start vehicle
