bottom rear of engine on the passenger side, the starter is serviced from under the car. it is held to the engine block with two bolts, then u must remove the battery cable and starter solenoid wiring as well, always disconnect the battery before doing any work on the starter.

2.2L Engine remove protective shields as needed then remove front exhaust pipe. Remove the brace from the engine to the clutch housing, then disconnect starter wiring. 4.3L Engine 2 wheel drive just remove the right front tire and you will have access to the wiring. 4.3L Engine 4 wheel drive you must remove the differential carrier shield if equipped then remove the starter bolts and rotate the starter to get access to the wiring. Good Luck.

it may be easier to attach the breaker bar to the tensioner arm from under the vehicle to relieve belt tension

the starter will be located on the lower right side of the engine and it is located near some key components for your vehicles ignition system. If you do not consider yourself at least a "B" level technician, I would suggest that you take it to a nearby shop in which u trust.
