Assuming they used any sense at all when they built that motor it is transverse mounted and the starter is located on the front side where the transmission housing and motor come together. Unfortunately that means it is located partially below the exhaust manifold and you will have to remove most of the intake manifold to get at it.
you will have to remove the battery, the air intake assembly and air filter housing for access to the starter which goes into the flywheel on the transmission to the right of the motor when looking under hood from front of car. you will probably need a variety of extensions and a universal joint for your sockets will help reaching the mounting bolts easier.
jorgeva: on the driver's side to gain access, you must remove the air cleaner assembly. At that point, you can see the back of the light which has a plastic cap. Rotate this "counter clockwise" and you can pull it back from the back of the lamp housing. From there you will see how the bulb it self is plugged in, which is obvious. Unplug it. There is a "spring "like latch retainer to hold the bulb in place. Unlatch it, remove the bulb and install the new bulb.
CAUTION!!!!!!! DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS AREA OF THE NEW BULB! Only handle the rear section. Reassemble in the reverse order.
The right side will require the removal of the windshield washer tank.
I trust this will have answered your question. If you would, let me or FIXYA know if I have solved your problem......
Your starter is below the air box, where air filter is. Remove air box and you will se the starter. Unplug battery. Remove nut (with 12mm wrench) which is connected to the starter, Nut is hidden under a rubber boot to prevent shorting out. unplug a single wire connector, which comes out of the starter solenoid. Starter is beeing held by 2 bolts. Remove 2 bolts, which you will be able to see and take out starter. Reverse procedure to install new starter. Reconnect battery.Start vehicle. The whole procedure should take under 1.0 hours.
Firts disconnect battery. Remoce air filter box. You will see the starter right under neith the air box. You will see a rubber bute. Under the boot is a 12mm wrench size nut. Remove nut. There is a single wire connector. Unplug connector. There are 2 bolts holding the starter to the trans. One of them is pretty big.(19mm socket size ?) and the other is smaller. Remove them both and the starter will come out. Reverse install procedure. Good luck
