Unhook the battery

remove the two or three bolts holding the starter on. pay attention to lengths of the bolts so they are put back in the same holes

take the wires off the old starter one at a time and attach them to the new starter (so you are sure which connector they go on)

bolt on the new starter.

hook up the battery and you are done.

If your going to be removing all of this I recommend you get the Haynes repair manual on the vehicle so you have the illustrations and directions for dis-assembly and assembly of the starter. The starter should be located on the bottom right of the engine where the Transmission attaches.
