Here are the procedures, see if you missed out anything.

Removal & Installation

1. Disconnect negative battery cable. Remove 2 upper bolts from intake manifold bracket. Raise and support vehicle. On M/T, remove clutch slave cylinder and push it aside.

2. On all models, remove lower intake manifold bracket bolts and bracket. Remove 2 upper starter bolts and a lower bolt. Pull starter from clutch (M/T) or converter (A/T) housing and prop in place. From above, disconnect starter solenoid "S" and "B" terminal connectors. From below, push transmission harness aside and remove starter.

3. To install, reverse removal procedure. Rotate starter to provide proper clearance. Tighten all nuts and bolts to specification.
