good luck outside , first take a trouble light in threw the wheel well ... best it the tires off .. but oh well ... see first if you can feel it with your fingers , right behind the slave cyl bracket ... if you take a socket with an extension actually 2 extensions .. once you get the socket on the bolt , off it comes ... it sucks and theres not much room but it can be done ...

Hey, thanks but I think the one bolt we can see is the one by the slave, im guessing this is a 2 bolt starter right? ive never heard of a 1 bolt starter before, so how do I get at the other bolt?

thanx! <=)

I had the same trouble you have to feel around stupid steel bolts into aluminum
you need a breaker bar, extensions, and those pivoting thingies???? it took a 360 pound friend of mine to crack mine
