The starter is located in the front center above the axle.

1. The first thing you want to do is disconnect the negative battery cable so nothing will short. 2. If it�s easier then raise the front end up on jack stands and then remove the dust cover if it has one. 3. When under the car disconnect the battery cable and the solenoid wire. 4. Remove the bolts that hold it in place. 5. Remove the starter and take note the location of the shims. 6. And just do the opposite of removal to put in the new starter. The new starter will come with new shims. Put the new shim(s) in exactly the same place. Otherwise you will get a screech noise each time it starts but may go away.

Note: On some cars you have to remove the front exhaust manifold and sometime. the AC condenser house but this is only on some models and sometimes you don't have to remove the house. Just be careful.

If you managed to seize the engine, there is no unlocking it. If it is seized severely enough, it will be impossible to even take it apart to rebuild it. If the engine has been seized (from oil starvation or severe overheating) you will need to replace the entire engine.
