Geez man... our starter positions suck. I've removed them before, but damn man. Anyone done this sucessfully that can assist me? I can easily get the bolts on the solenoid. But i can't even reach to touch the mounting bolts. Please help!
I've had luck with removing the entire air intake from the TB to the air cleaner housing. I even took out the air cleaner housing and battery. that opens up a lot of space. then my best and easiest starter swap was done with a 14mm and a 6" extension. even then, the bottom bolt was a bitch. of course, that was on my 5-speed sentra. I've heard the automatics are worse.
