Very easy. Get the car off the ground on the driver side and remove the 2 bolts and 2 wires to the starter and drop down. The exhaust may be or seem to be in the way but you can wiggle it through carefully. wiggle in the replacement and attach the wires carefully and bolt into place checking to make sure your wires are not kinked after you install the bolts. hope this helps

hot wire starter you can short out ignition switch and wiring. to jump starter ignition switch start postion.you have to run 10 gauge jumper wire from the starter solenoid positive battery terminal to starter switch or S terminal on starter solenoid this procedure take two people but better remove starter replace starter solenoid. trying jumping off starter on camaro would be dangerous you have jack up car to get to starter and wiring person laying under car hot wiring starter while other person hold ignition start position put person under car in deadly position just remove starter have auto parts check it out first replace starter or solenoid if either bad. easier hot wire starter if starter under hood like my 1977 vega monza had starter at top could take long screw driver jump starter off.on the four cylinders engines back in the 70s. camaro starter under car dangerous trying to hot wire not a good idea.
does it start fine cold and have problems starting after it's been running? gm's have the starter solenoid on the starter. if you have headers you will have problems overheating the solenoid and consequently have starting problems. as for the clutch, it has a switch on it so you can't inadvertantly start it in gear. if that switch is bad, it won't even click. you need a solenoid or starter. just cause it was new, doesn't mean it was good. see if your starter has a warranty and replace it. it should have a heat shield, see if it's there. if not, get one.
Check the voltage to the small terminal on the starter when tying to start the car.If there is 12 volts,then replace the starter,if there is not,any voltage,check the neutral safety switch,if it is not the problem,replace the ignition switch.Before all this,make sure the battery is good,and that the battery connections,cable ends included,are clean,and shiny,if they are dirty and corroded,there will not be enough voltage for the starter,it takes more voltage.
This is the old square body style car correct. Not hard to do, disconnect the positive battery cable from the battery. Pull the car on ramps and set the emergency brake or put on stands. Crawl under the car on the passenger side and disconnect the wires from the starter one should be a 9/16 and the other is probably a 3/8. Remove the rear support bracket if it has it should go from the rear of the starter to the engine. Then remove the two starter bolts possibly a 9/16 also careful to pay attention to any shims that might come out of it then pull the starter out of the bell housing and replace with new one and reconnect everything.
