Pop the hood. Remove the air intake tubing from the engine using a flathead screwdriver, and set it to the side. This will expose the starter motor just below, mounted towards the firewall with several wires out of the top of it.

Show me how to remove starter motor bmw 318s tork bolt will not loosen

remove the dip stick tube and remove the upper screw from above
remove the bottom screw from the bottom.
some times the screw is stuck, you need to spray some lubricant and let it set for a while.
it's a tight spot so you need to turn the starter switch to top and move it downward on it mount.
