88 Buick park ave. starter motor replace....

Helping a friend replace the starter motor of her 1988 buick park avenue with a 3.8L fuel injected engine, AT, front wheel drive car. I thought it would be simplistic, but I have not figured out which bolts hold the thing in place and what bolts I think hold it in will have a plastic cover in the way of me getting a wrench on that seem to not come off until the starter motor is out. Can anyone direct me to a diagram or directions to show me how to get this one out of the car? Thank you in advance for your help!!

There should be only two bolts. You may have to remove some stuff to get it out. Here's a link to another Buick 3.8L starter removal. Should be the same motor.
