2010 WK starter repair

Hi everyone,
I have a 2010 Grand Cherokee 3.7 Laredo, the starter is busted (turn key, battery engages, hear click and electrical trying to activate, but the solenoid won’t work) and was wondering if anyone could give a procedure to remove it and place a new one.
Also if someone could tell me bolt sizes for the starter and if I’d need a universal socket to reach it.
Any advice helps!
Thanks!

There are LOTS of youtube videos that will show you how to replace the starter, including what tools are needed. And you will need to replace the whole starter, the solenoids on them are not serviceable.

sure it is the starter and not a bad ground or battery issue? just saying since, Keep, It, Simple, Sir. the PC version. Battery is checked under load not at static level.

Determine where the click is coming from. If it's coming from the starter solenoid, chances are quite good the problem is caused by a low battery or poor connection(s) as mentioned above. If the click is coming from the fuse/relay box only when the key is turned to the start position, you may have a bad starter relay.

A quick and easy check for a weak/low battery or poor battery cable connections is to turn your headlights on and observe how bright they are when you try to operate the starter -- the headlights should stay nice and bright throughout, if they dim noticeably then the battery, cables, and/or connections are suspect.
