It's not too bad. I just replaced my starter on my F150 pickup. Safety first. I suggest you get 2 jackstands. Strongly recommend you DO NOT truch just the car jack.

Disconnect the ground lead of the battery. There will be 2 (sometimes 3) wires going to the starter. A red heavy duty wire that comes directly from the battery. Disconnect these wires. Remember where they go. Remove the lower bolt first, then the top one. It helps to have someone to hold the starter up just as the top bolt comes out. The new starter should come with a new solenoid already mounter on the starter. Bring the old starter with you when you go to get the new one, otherwise there is a $30 core charge until you bring the old one back, BTW, I would get a rebuilt starter rather than a new one.

Installation is the reverse. Be patient, take your time.

Hope this helps. THanks for contacting FixYa Loringh

Every 6 months must replace starter.

Anon. Do you have to crank the engine over a lot to get the engine started, do you need a tune up? If it a factory stock engine and you are sure it is correct starter and installed properly (with shims if required for meshing gap), makes me think there may be a damaged ring gear on the flywheel/flexplate. Also make sure starter is quality part.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How to replace a starter on a 1993 buick lesabre?

Remove negative battery cable.
Remove wires at starter-the big cable at starter, and the wire or wires at the solenoid on the starter.
Use a 10 mm socket or wrench to remove the little plastic shield covering starter where it mates to transaxle. Sometimes there's a brace on front of starter that also needs removing.
Use a 15 mm socket to remove two starter bolts from bottom of starter up into engine block. Starter is free now, and can be tipped, twisted, or turned for removal from engine area. How you manage to get it out from the area is how the new one goes in for mounting it up.
Reverse process to install. If old starter had a shim between starter base and the block, be sure and install that, too.

Need to replace the starter motor on Clio DCI 1.5 2002

I am not familiar with this engine Simon, but I will tell you this. Follow your hot wire from the battery. One goes to your alternator and one goes to your starter. Sometimes you will have to take off the exhaust to replace the starter. Make sure you take off the hot battery post or you will get shocked. There shouldn't be but a few bolts. Be careful with the wires.

I replaced a starter on my 1992 k1500 z71 with a 305. And after having my starter tested as well as my battery and altenator the starter ended up bad. So i replaced it. But now my truck is gitting no power...

That little wire needs to be plugged up. When you click start, that wire activates the solenoid which in turn activates the starter. Note that the solenoid is also attached to the starter.

2007 jeep wrangler tip start feature problem

First I would ask a friend to tow you to the auto parts store, and yes it sounds like you need a new starter. When the starter kept running it is because the bendix was stuck engaged. When you shut the jeep off and it would not turn over it is becuase the starter is fried. That happens with electrical componants.
