Where is the starter in a 93 Mercury Cougar and how do you change it?

the starter is located under the car on the side of the motor next to the oil pan not sure what side but it is towards the back by the bellhousing.

The starter is on the passenger side under the engine just behind the front wheel. Changing the starter is fairly simple. Once you located it, disconnect the neg battery cable. While under the car there is a wire that just pulls off the starter, then you only have two bolts to remove and it comes right off. Its really easier than you may think. Just dont forget to replug the wire back to the new starter or it wont operate.
