    Best way to remove starter

    Hi, Have to do a starter replacement shortly. Just wondering what is the easiest way to get these out since its so tight. This is on an 03 Non supercharged GTX. I've replaced these before but the engine was out. Never done this job with the engine in.

    lean on the side of the ski and reach around the front and back of the motor I have done a few in place and was easy (hope corrosion isnt an issue etc) having the knowledge of how it goes when not in the ski will help you do it by feel.

    If you have a torque plate you have to lay on top of the ski and have super flexible arms. I stretched a beach chair across with padding.
