Just pulled one from the junkyard this week. Basically, you need to get it up on ramps or jackstands first. Then, crawl under the car and loosen the bottom bolt, large positive wire( You DID disconnect the battery first, I hope?), and unplug the solenoid from the harness ( grey plug). Now, go up top, and loosen the bolt holding the ground wire to the transmission. If it is the original position, thst is also the top bolt of the starter. It should now easily come out from the bottom. I got this one out in 10-15 minutes in the junkyard- your results should be similar.ALso, you will need sockets and extensions or wrenches in 12mm and 14mm sizes to complete the project.
