Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5973094-starter_replace .

Your starter location is shown below with arrows pointing to the 2 mounting bolts. Note the position of the wires on the solenoid and remove the wires first, then the starter bolts. If there are any shims as shown in second photo, please put them back with the new starter. If you have any questions, please let me know.

First, disconnect the negative terminal at the battery and move it out of the way. Block the rear wheels and put the front of the car up on jack stands. Remove the plastic cover near the front of the engine bay. You should now be able to see the starter. It may be necessary to remove the plastic torque converter cover and force pry the tabs on the plastic torque converter splash shield to be able to get access to the two hidden starter mounting bolts - then remove the two bolts and remove the nuts holding on the two wires on the back. You may be able to do this before unbolting the starter but I found it easier to do second. With those connections removed, the starter will come out with some twisting to get it around the frame. Installation is the reverse. The Eighty Eight I worked on did not have any shims between the starter and transmission but if yours does, be sure to transfer them from the old starter to the new one before installation. Failure to do so could cause major problems.
