Need to replace the starter on my '05 Freestyle. Cannot find videos or how-to instructions anywhere. Help!

Remove the top of the air filter box and the hose that goes to the TB and you will see the starter on the front of the motor close to the radiator fan, on top of the transmission.

Easy peasy...20 minute job from the top left side. Bolts go in sideways.
