When I was doing the CVV and hoses the other day, I got a good look at the starter and solenoid and couldn't help thinking how I could reach there if I needed to change it one day.
Now when I read this thread, I got confused a bit. Can this job not be done from the top by removing the manifold???
Yes, I hate removing the manifold but I would take the manifold with a heartbeat if it is going to save me going through all that hassle of lowering the tranny, tilting the engine etc.
Is it really impossible to do this from the top?
I am asking because if it is impossible, then I need to make sure I have a mechanic to do it if it happens to me one day. There is no way I can do all that work from under the car.
