the starter on this car is difficult to get to. its located under the back of the intake manifold. its bolted to the car by two torx bolts through the bell housing on the transmission (if you look under the car at the trans toward the engine its the upper left of the bell housing). also you have cables that go to the starter, if you can sneak your hand up underneith the car up along the bell housing and try to unscrew them, there a 10mm, 8mm and 13mm nuts, however that's very hard to do, i suggest taking out the airbox, and all airtubing that goes to the throttle and then sneak down from the top of the engine to loosen the wires, then sneak the starter down the bown the side of the trans, or at this point once its loose take it out anyway you see fit. hope this helps
