Hi Jcetkt, Make sure the park brake is fully engaged. Chock the wheels and prepare a long extension with the correct size socket spanner, (A box wrench set onto a long extension) Slide under the vehicle and loosen it from the bottom. It may be a good idea to have a pal guiding the wrench from top side. Regards John

Your starter is located on the back side of the engine at the top of the transmission bell housing, under the intake manifold.
