I am trying to replace the starter, which should be a relatively easy fix. The upper mounting bolt for the starter was gone and is the reason why the casing on the starter broke around the other mounting bolt. I bought another bolt for the hole, but the problem is there is no way to get your hand or a wrench in that little space to put that second, upper bolt in the hole. Do I need to remove something to create access to it ?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Shirley, A 10 or 12 mm swivel socket (which ever fits the head of the bolt) can be added to a long extension, this should allow you snake on top of the starter.
