Under the car take off the transmission dust cove and you will see the the starter
Disconnecte the batter negative first then the red positive this is a must the wires run straight to the starter the little round thing on it is the starter solenoid it has one or 2 small wires the starter has a big positive red power wire take off the wires two bolts hold the starter to the engine block some have metal shims if it doesn't don't add if it does then put it back depends on where the block was made the shim is to make up the space metric to standard of you can't get at the small wires get something to rest the starter on and take off the wires with the starter lowered then put on the new one it will take about 2 hours
You have to take off the wheel well cover after that make sure you do it on both sides in the front there should be bolts that connect to the bumper take the bolts off then open the hood take out the lights unless it does not need the lights to be taken out some cars require at some cars don't there will be both that are holding the top of the bumper on then you take those off the bumpers should come off if not there might be some hidden bolts that you might have to find make sure you keep track of where everything is at and make sure you put it back on in the correct way otherwise your bumper is going to be sideways.
get a lift buy a new or rebuilt starter drive the car onto the lift disconnect the negative battery cable put the car up in the air disconnect the wiring from the starter, use your cell phone camera to take a picture before removing the wires take the top and bottom bolts out which hold the starter to the bell housing pull starter out and down put new starter in and put bolts back in look at cell phone picture and reconnect wiring the same way let car down and reconnect battery you are done
the mounting bolts are at the rear of the starter and go upwards through the starter into the engine block.when looking at the starter solenoid were the wires are connected to the starter follow it towards the rear away from the wires towards the transmission.this is were you will find the mounting bolts at the bottom of the starter(closest to the ground).they are 9/16(15mm) bolt heads.
Disconnect your negetive battery cable at the battery,Under the passenger side front of your van right rear side of the engine is where the starter is located at.Remove the 2 big bolts holding starter to the block(hold onto the starter as you remove the last bolt so starter doesn't fall and rip wires)Then lower starter enough to access the battery feed wire and the solenoid wire(small wire for the solenoid supply) The big bolts are either 15mm or 9/16 the battery supply wire at the solenoid is usually 13mm and the small wire is usually 5/16 reverse the pro ceedure to install.
Not too much trouble. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove big nut from starter selonoid and remove battery cable along with any other wires on the big post. Remove the purple wire from the "s" terminal on the selonoid. Remove the 2 bolts that hold the starter to the engine block, hold starter up while removing bolts. Lower starter carefully. Some starters have a bracket at the rear end of the starter , if this is one just remove the bolt holding it to the block and lower it with the starter.
1) Disconnect cable from negative battery terminal
2) Raise vehicle front and suitably and safely support.
3) Remove cover from starter wiring (small right angle-like black plastic cover).
3) Loosen large wiring harness (underneath starter) so that it can be moved out of the way.
4) Remove outer nut and wires from solenoid.
5) Remove outer nut and wires wires from starter.
6) Remove two (2) screws retaining plastic flywheel cover and cover.
You will need to do this - otherwise you will be unable to remove the
front bolt holding the starter to the engine block. This cover is a
small black plstic piece located where starter penertates the flywheel
7) Remove (2) bolts retaining starter to the engine block. One
is accessable towards the front of the starter/vehicile and the other
(long one) is towards the rear of the vehicle - just behind the frame
8) Position starter so that if can be dropped down (flywheel gear part first).
9) Reverse the above instructions to install the new starter/solenoid
First of all I'm not an expert. However, having said that the only way I was able to do this very same thing was to pull the hood up a bit and slide in a couple extensions and a socket onto the bolts and take them off. Then it got real fun becuase one of the bolts is behind the bumper, so I lined it up and drilled through it to get at that one. Drastic perhaps but as a backyard mechanic I couldn't think of a better way to get at it. Hopefully someone else has better advice, perhaps a way to pull up on the hood and force latch open.
