Hi,

All you will need is a basic socket/ratchet set. Deep well sockets could be needed to remove the wires at the starter, but chances are you will be able to do it without.

One thing I need you to remember, you must disconnect the negative battery terminal before starting to work on the starter. There is a 12v power supply constantly from the battery that can short.

To get you started, here is a link that shows in general how it is done. You can use this to help guide you.

If you look at the attachments below, I provide the directions specific to your vehicle along with pics.

Let me know if this helps or if you have other questions.

Take care,

Joe
