It's on the front side of the block and is not that difficult at all, but will take a little bit of dismantling the charge air cooler pipe from the under side of the vehicle. I've attached some pictures of the process.

This guide will help walk you through the steps with diagrams for you car below.

Hello,

On the hybrid engine the starter motor is the hybrid electric motor which doubles as the starter motor so there is no starter motor to replace on these cars.

Here is a guide to help you understand

If you have a non hybrid car here is a guide to help you see what you are in for when doing the job.

Hey Mastied,

Here are the instruction you needed

Disconnect negative battery cable. Remove air cleaner outlet tube and air cleaner assembly. Drain engine cooling system. Disconnect the 3 hoses and position thermostat aside. Remove starter solenoid cable nuts and position solenoid cables aside. See Fig 8 . Remove starter motor mounting bolts and starter motor. See Fig 9 . To install, reverse removal procedure. Tighten bolts to specification. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS

Here is a guide that will show you what you are in for
