1. Raise the car and support it. 2. Disconnect the negative battery cable. 3. Crawl under the car and locate the starter. It is easiest to do this by following the positive power cable from the battery down to the starter. 4. Remove positive cable from starter. 5. Remove wires from solenoid. 6. Remove bolts holding starter to the transmission bell housing. 7. Remove the starter.
Answer Crawl up under the vehicle and look up in the space between the inner fender wells and the headlights just behind the bumper and or directly under the battery but you have to crawl under the car. Use a flashlight.
Disconnect the battery, then crawl under the truck and locate the starter, remove the plug going to the solenoid (small brown lead w plastic clip) . then the power wire that goes from the battery to the main starter terminal (12 mm nut) locate the 2 starter bolts 14 mm and unbolt the starter and remove. install in reverse order. ON the 4 wheel drives you may need to remove the skid plates over the bottom of the engine to access the starter.
