Re: need help fast!
If I recall correctly, it isn't attached to the starter. Take out all the dust cover bolts on the transmission and the cover drops straight down, revealing the nose of the starter..as well as the two bolts attaching the starter to the block.
If the cover is one piece, then there are three bolts holding it on (two on the bottom, one on the side). If it is a two piece, then there are four bolts (three for the main cover, and a 4th on the front side of the transaxle case for the 2nd piece of the cover.)
