From underneath the car, passenger side. Remove the metal dust shield and you'll see the starter on the engine wall.

Be careful of the tight squeeze... you'll be busting knuckles on the firewall. You'll need a 14 mm socket wrench. A "breaker bar" will assist you in getting the bolts started.

I know because... dear hubby is outside working on removing my son's 2000 Kia Sephia's starter as I type. Since he's busted his knuckles a couple of times... I "know" he's getting the job done right. ;) absolutely not from underneathe the car , remove the air intake box and tube on the drivers side you can then acess the two 14mm bolst on the starter losen and remove, then remove the intake manifold support bracket closer to the passsenger side losen the lower starter bolt, tyhen hold the starter with one hand and losen the bolt all the way , do the opposite to instll

Where exactly is the starter on a 1997 Kia Sephia 5-speed?

It is next to the oil filter behind the engine; you have to access it from underneath. Contrary to what is written in the Chilton manuals, THERE IS NO NEED TO BREAK OPEN THE EXHAUST SYSTEM TO REPLACE THE STARTER MOTOR! I was able to change the starter motor on a 1998 Kia Sephia with the 1.8L DOHC engine without so much as kneeling. It is located at the upper-rear of the flywheel, just below the air-induction casting. After undoing the three bolts attaching it to the engine, the starter motor can be moved towards the passenger side of the engine. If the vapor recovery canister is simply pulled upwards, it comes out of the way, and the starter can then be cleared out of the engine.

I was able to change the starter on my 1989 Nissan pulsar, by first lifting the front of the car. Then I placed a jack under the passenger side of the engine. Then remove the bolt from the passenger side of the motor. Then jack the side of the engine till you can access the bolts on the starter. The bolts also serve as a mount for the transmission. There is one wire hookup. The stud on the starter is a light guage metal, and can be striped very easy. So be careful.
