My starter needs to be replace. I'm more the willing to do the work myself, but I need to know if anyone else as done this before and how difficult is this?

Not a difficult job but you have to crawl around under the car. First thing to do is disconnect the battery. Now you need to get the car up high enough to work under. I like ramps but jack stands are go too. Never work under a car with only a jack holding it up. Chuck the tires and apply the emergency brake as well as putting the car in park, you get the idea. Now look for the starter at the rear of the engine way down low by the fly wheel. Notice that there are wires going to the forward end of the starter you need to remove them remembering where they go for the assembly of the new starter. Look at the rear of the starter where it attaches to the bell housing. Here you will see some large bolts attaching the starter flange to the bell hosing. Remove the lower bolt first and than the top. The starter will fall out in your hands. Just revers the steps for assemble
