Hello,

You will need to disconnect the battery first before you begin. Next you will need to raise the car up safely.

Here is a guide

Here is what it will be like on your car (below) I got both engines just in case.

Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

First, disconnect the battery. Next remove the wires from the starter. Finally remove the two mounting bolts holding it. Remove the starter, and reverse the sequence to replace.

Service and Repair

Upon removal of starter, note if any shims are used. If shims are used, they should be reinstalled in their original location during installation.
If starter is noisy during cranking, remove one .015 inch double shim or add one .015 inch single shim to the outer bolt. If starter makes a high pitched whine after firing, add .015 inch double shims until noise ceases.

1.Disconnect battery ground cable.
2.Raise and support vehicle.
3.Remove flywheel cover attaching bolts, then the cover.
4.Disconnect all electrical wires from starter.
5.Remove starter motor attaching bolts, then the motor by rotating the solenoid side toward the vehicle.
6.Reverse procedure to install. Torque starter attaching bolts to 32 ft. lbs. and inspection cover bolts to 89 inch lbs.
