Check for a 3 bolt coming back from the engine side of the housing or a third bolt in close to the bell housing. 50% of starters have a triangular mount pattern for bolts with some having one hole threaded

Testimonial: "thanks but this one only has the 2 bolt pattern so i think the bendix has over extended and locked behind the fiywheel so im going to gut the starter and hope i can dis lodge it that way"

Connect battery>>>>try unlocking the vehicle from the inside (door closed), using the power un/lock button. Make sure the key is set to the "on" position. Most of the time this works. If this doesnt work, try using the key to lock and unlock the door through the key hole. Hopefully this helps!!
