location of starter motor - EJ20

Look I'm not used to the layout of the legacy's under the bonnet.
My starter motor has crapped out & need to replace it.
don't want to pay a mechanic to do it, not when I have done it on previous cars.
Can someone please tell me where the bloody thing is and any additional need to know info regardingdoing a home job?
Thanks in advance

look next to the transmission on the right hand side. if it's turbo, you may need to pull off the IC stuff, ect. to see it. I don't remember. it's been a while since I have seen a right hand drive EJ20T motor.
in either case, a subaru is a very easy starter change in comparison to other cars. I did one in an S-10 one time that took me about 5 hours! THERE WAS NO ROOM!

Are you sure the starter itself is bad? Could be something as simple as burned/pitted contacts on the solenoid--a relatively easy and inexpensive fix.
