Default How to replace starter?

I was just wondering how difficult it was to replace the starter, and if there is anything special I have to do? Its on a 91 Civic Si. Thanks!

Well that was eerily easy to do. :)

I think one of my tranny mounts is fuxored... as some of you know, I got my car back about 1 1/2 weeks ago after getting the transmission replaced... well, it feels like the mount in the front of the engine allowed the transmission to move about 1 1/2 inches to the left... and you can hear a whining that sounds like its coming from where the tranny and engine connect, because the sounds goes away when i push in the clutch, but it also does it in neutral if the clutch is not pushed in...
