Well, like I said, when I changed mine, I didn't loosen the tranny or remove the intake manifold. I just got a wrench set that would work in the compact areas where the bolts are, jacked up the car and removed it from below. The set was only $26 and it made a huge job really small. Iskoos, it is easier to remove the starter from below the car. This way you don't have to take your car apart to take out the starter. If you have a physical reason you can't remove it from below, get a friend to help. It is easier from below. It is just a minor PITA.
