Two big bolts, at the rearward end of the starter, at the engine/tranny
junction.  One has a nut and one doesn't, i think the one that doesn't
is the top one and the bolt head is easiest to get to thru the RF wheel
well with the tire out of the way.  Remove those and the wires on the
front end of the starter and it should fall out.
