It really isnt that hard except trying to get the two bolts that hold the starter on. Once you break the torque with a 3/8 wrench then i would recommend using a 3/8 ratcheting wrench which made it easier to put remove and put back. Took about 4 hours and a 12 hr delay on the starter getting here but all in all it wasnt too bad. Also it didnt fix my problem and it looks like ill be taking the car to the stealer ship. At least i got a new starter on.
