I NEED TO REPLACE THE STARTER. I NEED TO KNOW WHERE IT IS LOCATED AND THE LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY IN GETTING IT OUT.

In the haynes manual I have it says there are shims. Are these easy to see before the starter is removed?

The shims are between the starter and where it mounts. When you remove the starter, you will see them. Just replace them and it will be fine. NOTE: Some vehicles may not have the shims, so don't panic if they are not there.
