Remove positive battery cable, then pull the rubber cap back on the starter (driver's side, behind the IP) and remove the screw that holds the key wire and the large nut that holds the battery cable and buss wire.

You will have to jack up the car to remove starter -- on the 300D you can only reach the upper bolt from underneath while someone holds the socket on the bolt, but you may have more room on the 190.

Two bolts from the rear 19 mm I think, starter comes out the bottom.

Mine were STUCK, we had to use "foot power" on a 24" breaker bar to break the upper one loose.

installation was easy, except that the new starter had a different connector for the starter wire, had to clip the old one off and crip a new one on (supplied with starter). There isn't much wire to deal with.....

If the starter bolts are allen heads sure the allen fits all the way into the head of the bolt.

Double-check by tapping and also make sure there's no crud inside preventing the end of the allen from fully seating. The last thing you want to have to do is get a stripped allen bolt out!

Haasman:

They are hex heads on the 60x motors. Don't ask why not hex sockets, it would be MUCH easier....
