The starter is mounted on the engine/transmission in the middle of car in front. The starter goes into the engine by way of flywheel which it turns.
It looks like a bottle or a cylinder with a smaller cylinder (solenoid) on top.
Its mounted on by two bolts. The Black or negative battery cable is connect to it. The bell housing or what looks like a hard plastic cover may be blocking your view, remove them first with socket wrench or pliers.
***Make sure you
Disconnect the battery negative before any work as the starter is wired straight to the battery and serious damage can be caused to you or the system if wires touch ground or tools that is grounded.

Remove the two bolts on the starter (match them up with new starter). Starter should slip out of flywheel area. Installation is reversed of removal.

Use the correct size socket. Uses Standard, not metric sized sockets as it is an American made auto.

Loosen the tensioner pulley on your 1992 Buick LeSabre. Take the serpentine belt off. Put the new serpentine belt on and tighten it down with the tensioner pulley.

Yest, the Buick LeSabre from 1992-1994 is the same exact car, inside, outside, underside. Everything is identical, except say for the trim packages and options you get on them. Therefore, yes the cassette radio from a 1992 LeSabre will work in a 1994 LeSabre.
