First thing you do is disconnect the battery. Then jack up the car and put jack stands under it for your own safety, then just have at disconnecting the starter. When reattaching the wires, make sure they only touch the terminals they go on, and do not over tighten these nuts. Tighten the mounting bolts up good thow.
