to remove and repalce the starter, you need to unbolt the starter asembley, and then the cables as well.
after the starter is unhooked and loose, you can pull it right out. there is a big o-ring that will make the starter stay inside the case, so it may need to be pulled out hard to remove it properley. when you reinstall the new starter, make sure you lube the o-ring to aide in installation.
