Help: How to Replace starter on 02 SE-SC Xterra?

Hi, could any one be so kind to save my friend and I a trip to buy an Xterra manual and let us know how to replace the starter on his 2002 Nissan Xterra SE Supercharged? Any help would be appreciated. We've spent the past day looking on google and couldn't find any thing. Any help appreciated! Thank you.

disconect the battery

remove the wires from the starter

remove the bolts that attach the starter to the back of the motor(air ratchet is a big plus for this)

old starter slides out, new one goes back in the reverse order.

It is really a lot easier than you are making it out to be in your mind. It can all be done without a jack, or even removing a tire.

I can do mine in about 30-35 min. longer if I have to shovel out the truck to get to it.
