the starter is to the right of the battery, from the front of the car, down under some coolant hoses. you have to take off the air intake hose befor e you can even see it. you can always find a starter by following the big cable from the positive battery post. it goes directly to the starter. my problem is - I cant figue ouut how to get the starter out...its really buried in there! You are going to have to remove a decent amount of parts to get in there. It sucks but its necessary. Remove the intake hose and then use a 14mm socket to take off the top and bottom bolts. If facing from the front of the car the top bolt is more towards the front and the bottom bolt is towards the back. There are a couple bolts near the bottom one, so make sure you get the 14mm one for the starter. It will be somewhat long. Then you will be able to wiggle the starter out. Now you can use a 12mm socket to remove the positive battery cable.
