I need to replace my starter motor. I know where it's at
I will assume you say that you need to know where the starter is located. It is located on the passenger side below the engine. It is easy to extract but you need a tact to replace it, particularly due to the power cable to the starter. It is a very doable task, but have to be precise on the line of the cable.

There is some general information at the approximately the 2 minute 40 second point of the video in post #3. It's been about a year since I removed the starter wire, but I remember having to manipulate the starter to and the cable in several different directions before I could take it off. Reinstalling it also required some fiddling.

There is also some information at the 5-minute point in this video.

It is definitely a challenge to remove the cable. My starter had a rebuilt sticker on it, so it had been removed previously. The person who did the work broke the plastic cover off of the positive cable. I'm not sure that is absolutely necessary.
