Question about 1997 Dodge Caravan
The bolts are 15 mm. The bottom one is in a tight space where your rachet and socket will unscrew it, but then the rachet will be trapped by the bolt head, so take out the top one first, then pull the starter away as you loosen the bottom one.

This should be straight forward. Disconnect battery, jack up van and if the wires on starter are accessible take them off remembering where they go back on(draw a diagram before removing). Remove starter mounting bolts and don't let it hit you when it falls. Reinstall new one by reversing the removal. You can test old one by putting one black jumper cable end on negative battery terminal and the housing of starter. Put one red on the positive terminal of battery and touch the other end to connection post(big one) on starter. It should kick out and spin gear.

If you dont have a lift , you will have to crawl under the car and work on your back, there are 2 bolts that hold the starter to the transmission housing and then there are electrical connections for the starter, you should disconnect the battery before you do any work.
