Straight forward R and R.

First Spray some WD 40 on your exhaust manifold to pipe bolts and let them soak while youre doing the other things

Disconnect your battery.

you may have a heat shield that you need to remove first to get better access to the starter wires--

There are two main bolts and one front "hanger bracket".

remove associated wires from old starter

Loosen the main bolts-- watch for shims.. if present note which went where.
remove main bolts and slide out.

At this point you may or may not be able to finagle the starter out without loosening the exhaust pipe.

After it's out check the flywheel/flex plate for damage.. repair as necessary.

Resinstall in reverse.

And make sure you heed his "warning"...Disconnect Battery first!

That large wire at the starter solenoid is HOT AT ALL TIMES! The other end of that wire is connected to the positive terminal of your battery. You bump that against anything metal underneath the car you will have a arc welding effect instantly! :surprised
