Hi there:

In general, the process for replacing a starter follows this method:

  • Inspect the starter and ignition switch.
  • Remove and replace starter if it has failed.
  • Test for power going to starter.
  • Inspect the starter relay, grounds, supply cables and battery.

For specific tips on how to replace the starter on your 2002 GMC Yukon, I’d search YouTube.com for some videos you can watch or purchase a service manual for your vehicle.
