Before removing the starter, try this. Have a helper turn the key to the start position while you check the smaller wire on the starter. It should be getting 12+ volts. If it is, then the starter is bad. If there is no power, it could be the starter relay, ignition, or other problem.
As far as removing the starter, disconnect the battery, remove the wiring on the starter (PASSANGER SIDE). THere are two bolts that hold the starter in place. Remove them and the starter will come off. Just reverse the sequence to replace it.
Let me know what you find. Also, if you remove the starter, most parts stores will bench test it for free.
