Just wanted to know if this is an hour or 4-hour job.

I have replaced starters before, and it is usually two big bolts, a few
electrical connections, and a whole lot of holding a starter above your face
trying to get it off and on the car.

The reason I am asking is that someone mentioned to me that I may have to
remove some exhaust piping.

Anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks
John

Yep, remove exhaust. As well, in order to drop the exhaust down far enough,
you have to either remove the transmission brace, or take the exhaust loose
at the muffler(or converter) I believe. In my instance, I brought it in to
work(there's a garage and full time mechanic here) and had him do it.
Instead of removing the entire exhaust or brace or anything, we took the
exhaust loose on the left side only, from manifold, cut the pipe and removed
that section, put the new starter on, then hooked back up to the manifold
and welded the pipe back together. Not totally kosher I suppose, but
vehicles here in my state are only inspected when bought/sold... so... Smile

Good luck!

Ok , another question based on initial inspection.

Where the heck is the starter?/


Is it the dinky motor driver side under the flared out section of the oil
pan?

BTW. My local dealer wanted $350-470 to replace this. Yikes!

I removed the solenoid and starter drive housing seperatly from the main
housing. The three seperate pieces will clear the exhaust. Worst part is
rotating the starter 180deg to get to the main bolts holding it together. I
tried to drop the exhaust, but the flange is in a spot requiring about 2
feet of extension on your impact. With that much extension your impact is
pretty worthless. Once I figured out the shortcut the whole R&R took about
a half hour.
Hope this helps.
PS-I did have the truck on a lift, so if you are lying on your back this
could be a bit more difficult.
