Hi! I'm in the process of changing out my starter. Apparently, a TON of people have been in this position.

The problem I'm having is getting to the bottom bolt of the intake manifold. I'm sure a few of you have had encounters with this issue. Any tips on how to get to the darned thing? I just can't quite get to it. What's the trick?

I did the starter and a bunch of other stuff a couple of months ago, but for the life of me I cant think of what bolt you are referring to. I think there is just one bolt, and the rest are nuts, but I remember them being pretty easy to get to. Here is a pic of the manifold, which one do you mean?

There are 5 fasteners holding the mani to the head. If you have those five out, there is still the bolt on the lower mounting bracket that bolts to the engine block (#14 below) maybe you missed that one? You will have to get it from under the car.
