1) Jack up the front end and secure it so it can't roll or fall on you. 2) Disconnect the front battery. 3) crawl under the car and locate the starter. ( You May want to have already purchased the replacemet so you can compare the two so you can be sure the parts guy gave yo the right one ) 4) With the camera on your phone take to atleast 5 pictures from everye angle for future reference. 5) Remove the wires. Starting with the smallest. 6) remove the bolts that hold it in place. Reinstall in the reverse order. 7) hook the battery back up after you clean throw terminals. 8) Start the car. Return the old starter for the core charage. 9) All done? Crack open a cold one.

Ignore the first answer, BoholMark used a copy and paste "all-in-one" answer that does not apply to Dodge Colts. In his haste to give generic advice hoping it will work, he forgot the prime directive: "STFU if you don't know the car." I have a 91 Dodge Colt in my driveway as I talk, it has a starter problem. You cannot "crawl under the car and locate the starter." You also cannot see the starter under the hood, The starter is in the middle of the engine, under the intake manifold, and on top of the transmission. There are a multitude of problems to overcome before you'll have the starter out and in your hands, Mine's not out yet. I'll get back to you when it is. It's now 10 pm Xmas eve. My guess is in 1967 when I started doing all my own mechanic work the guy who wrote the answer above was not even born yet. It may be a day or two before I complete my "honest answer" to this question. Later guys.
