Has anyone ever attempted to this project? The kit is only $23.43 and I still have the intake manifold off. I'm stuck between taking the chance that mine will last another year being that removing everything again won't be as difficult and time consuming.
Decisions:
Sorry if I'm asking a quesiton you already answered in this long thread, but are you having problems with the starter or are you just wanting to rebuild it as a preventative measure?

I don't think starters on these cars are a common fail item, but they are a pain to get to if you have to remove it so I can see where you're coming from.

You may be able to find a local starter/generator/alternator shop that will rebuild if for a very reasonable price, especially if you supply the parts. That way you could make sure it is done correclty and will last a long time. Just a thought.
