Hello,

You must start by removing the negative battery terminal. Here is a step by step guide and some diagrams for your car. (BELOW)

Yours is under the intake manifold which make the job a little tougher but you can do it.

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

Cheers, Ken

Battery off (use a memory saver if you can or you will loose radio function until you code it again) remove any under engine covers, there will be 2 wires on the starter one heavy and one small, remove these heavy will be a 12mm nut and small push on, starter is secured with 2 bolts, undo and carefully remove starter.

This is a 6hr job. It is one of the most difficult starter replacements. If you take it to a shop for them to do, it will run about $900 - $1200.
