Keep in mind that the engine sits in there sideways, so the "back" of the engine, or flywheel is actually on the driver's side (the front is on the passenger side). The starter for any vehicle is at the flywheel. Raise the vehicle and crawl underneath from the front on the driver's side. Look for the oil filter. Slightly above and to your left (toward the driver's side wheel well) is the starter. It looks to me like you'll need to drain the motor oil and remove the oil filter to have room to remove the starter.

Always replace the starter as a unit. The brushes are usually bad as well as the solenoid. Replacing as a unit is cost effective and will reduce labor.

When i try to start my 97 mazda 626 it clicks but won't turn over and other times it starts.. What's the problem?

It sounds like your starter motor is going out. More specifically the solenoid on your starter motor, and since the they are both connected these days unlike the older vehicles you like need to replace the whole starter motor. I hope this helps you out.
