Question about 1994 Cadillac DeVille
On a 4.9 v8 this is relatively simple
Step 1.... Before you get under the car, Disconnect the battery and look for the metal shield. The best way to find it is to follow the red (power) cable from the battery. It goes straight to the starer. You want to take out the metal shield, but you will only be able to take out the only accessable nut from the sheild from the top. The other will be from below (later). Take out the 1st connector/nut holding the shield. This should be located by the radiator...you will see the metal shield is protecting the wiring from burning on the exhaust manifold.
Step 2...Then raise the car on the lift, take off the long / wide plastic shield under the radiator (allowing manuverability and you to see what you are doing). Then remove second plastic shield covering the starter.
Step 3...This will allow you to take out the 2nd bolt holding the metal shield (from step 1) protecting the wiring harness.
Step 4...Then you will be able to unfasten the wiring and bolts to remove the starter.
Step 5...Replace with the new starter, reconnect everything and bolt it ,etc. Dont forget to put all the sheilds back in place and make sure the wiring harnesses dont touch the exhaust manifold.
Step 6...Lastly, lower the vehicle, raise the hood and dont forget the nut on the metal shield !
Step 7...Reconnect the Battery
Step 8...START YOUR ENGINE!!! YAY!!!

Depending on your mechanical ability, it can be considered fairly easy. If you're working in your driveway,PLEASE be sure to block the wheels so you don't get crushed under the car.
Gather the necessary tools needed such as wrenches, sockets, screwdriver and pliers.
Place the vehicle on ramps or jack up the front and support with jack stands. It is very important to block the rear wheels to keep the car stationary during this procedure. Never work under a vehicle not supported properly
Make sure ignition is OFF and the remove the negative (ground) battery cable from the battery.
Note the location of all wires before removal to make for easier connection.
Remove the large starter cable going to the battery at the starter location.
Remove any other wires attached to the solenoid.
Remove the starter attaching bolts (usually there are two or three).
Remove any supporting brackets that holds the starter.
Drop the starter down away from the car. On some cars you may have to turn the wheels to one side, remove the idler arm, remove or loosen transmission oil cooler lines, exhaust pipes, or ground straps to give you enough clearance to get the starter motor away from the car.
Install the new starter in the reverse order of removal.
Reconnect battery cables and other wires to solenoid.
Place old starter in the new starter box for proper core return.
