What you need to do is remove the 2 screws on the top bezel from inside the engine bay, then underneath the outer corner of the plastic headlamp surround there is a philips screw, (put your head under neath car near from wheel) loosen the screw, do not remove it, now the headlamp plastic bezel/surround will come free enough so you can get a philips screwdriver in through the middle of the headlamp surround, there is a chrome retaining ring holding the headlamp in place, loosen the 3 philips screws (do not remove) The retaining ring will rotate and you can slide the ring out from the outer edge of the headlamp surround. The headlamp will then come out throught the middle of the surround, disconnect the 3 pin multiplug and reverse process for install.

no there is'nt enough pressure underneath to make it leak try tighting up the valve cover bolts or just getting a new gasket about a $6.00 to $10.00 dollar fix depending on where you go

The starter motor is located on the passenger side ( left ) side of the motor. it is held onto the motor with two bolts. Before starting the removal process you must disconnect the battery by removing the ground lead. Under the car disconnect the battery feed wires on the solonoid mounted on the starter. Also disconnect the white with red tracer wire on the solonoid. This is the wire that comes from the starter relay on the firewall. Remove the upper bolt first. You can get at it from the top of the engine bay and then remove the bottom bolt. This starter is heavy. The starters on the later cars were a lot lighter. The starter will clear the engine. Be sure to test the new starter before you install it. Installation is reverse of the removal.
