It's a pain getting the wires on and off of the started but it is doable. You mainly have to fell around, it may even be easier to pull the starter off but leave it in the engine bay to get better access to it. Other than that it's pretty strait forward, oh and you don't want to over tighten the wire on the starter as it can strip the threads, I've done it before and ended up having to get a new starter due to me messing them threads up, probably could have taken it into a shop and have then rebuild and replace that part, but I needed it done asap.
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
