It should be somewhere near the windshield washer fluid tank. It will look like the new one you bought and all you have to do is disconnect it and plug in the new one

For a 1992 V6, 3.3 litre: The starter is at the bottom front of the engine where it meets the transmission, a little to the driver's side of center. (1) Raise the car and secure it (2) Disconnect the negative battery terminal. (3) Remove the wires from the starter, noting their location. (4) Remove the two bolts holding the starter. They are vertical, near the engine end of the starter. They have 15mm heads, one on the front and the other on the back, accessible behind the frame crossmember. You'll need a stout 1/2-inch ratchet, a long extension and a swivel attachment. You may also have to remove a plastic cover over the space between the engine and transmission, which requires a 10 mm wrench. (5) Pull out the old starter. It's heavy, and you may have to wrestle it past obstructions such as the air conditioner return hose and large wiring bundle. If the hose won't push out of the way, loosen the clamp holding the receiver-dryer (big silver cylinder) in its bracket and raise it. Some manuals will tell you to remove the hose from the back of the compressor. Avoid this unless you want to have the a/c system evacuated and recharged anyway. The wiring bundle can be lowered for clearance by removing its attachment clips from the frame crossmember. (6) Install new starter. If you removed any shims with the bolts, put them back in place. Don't forget to reconnect the battery before you test it.

The starter on a 92 Buick LeSabre is replaced by disconnecting the battery, removing the retaining bolts, and lowering the starter. The wiring harness can then be disconnected and a new starter installed.

The 1990 Buick Century has a timing chain and not a belt. No replacement is necessary.
