Remove the bolt securing the cable to the battery, using a \012wrench, then remove and isolate the cable from the battery terminal.

Secure the car on a jack stand positioned \012under the frame of the car, then remove the jack.

They are both stud and nut terminals and are marked "B" and \012"S." Remove the retaining nuts from both terminals, using a socket and \012ratchet, then remove the wires from the terminals. Make note of which \012wire came off which terminal; the "B" terminal should have the bigger, \012red wire.

Remove both bolts with a socket and ratchet while \012supporting the starter so it does not fall on you. Remove the starter \012from the engine compartment and set it aside.

Install the two mounting bolts into the\012 holes in the starter, then thread them into the engine block. Tighten \012the bolts to 32 ft.-pounds of torque with a torque wrench and socket.
