Remove the lower starter assembly to engine block bolt.
Lower the vehicle.



Remove the upper starter assembly to engine block bolt.

thx for the instructions. It helped out a lot! I took out the starter and it was fine just that the housing was cracked in half? How is that possible? But anywayz I found a brand new one off ebay for 50 bux so that's a plus. Thx for your help
