Default Replacing starter

Hi all.....I am new to this forum, but not new to them or the common practices. I am only getting on for the sake of helping a friend of my wifes. I searched the how-to section for a starter thread but couldn't find one. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could give me some insight on how to change one out on a 01 model.....or at least a link to the thread if I missed it.

Thanks Yall!
