Starter Replacement on a 5kq

There are 2 bolts.

Both go through the tranny/bell housing casing and on
to the starter.

One of the bolts screws on to the starter itself (as
it has threads built in), where as the other screws on
to a nut, and thus, need to secure both ends. I forget
which is which.

Its a fairly straight forward job.

The started sometimes remains stuck in place even
after you have removed the bolts/nut, in such case tap
it with, say a mallet or something to make it loose.
