The starter on most GM product is located on the lower passenger side of the engine at the rear of the block held on by two bolts. Disconnect your battery, remove the two bolts, and drop the starter down just far enough to remove the wiring from the starter. ( it helps if you have a block or something to rest the starter on while you remove the wires so there is no tension them.) Simply reverse order.
