4'th gen starter:

Maybe a silly question, but the only dumb question is one not asked, right?

Going to change the starter on my '95 camaro, but upon inspection I found that my exhaust runs right underneath the bugger, making very little space to work with. So little space, I can't get the thing out! So, what's the best way to remove a starter from a '95? Drop the exhaust?

Thought I'd see if there was some easy way I was missing before I just went and made a mess of things.

Thanks!

Re: 4'th gen starter:

i have a third gen, so im not very familiar with the fourth gen stuff, but lemme' give it my best shot; You could drop the exhaust if you wanted to but if a bolt snaps (which they sometimes tend to) your done=exhaust leak. IMHO, i would find a way to shove a wrench in there, and then the hard part should be just trying to get the darn thing outta there. Once you do, bolting a new unit back up shouldnt be to tough. Although if it is extremely tight fit, i would take the extra time to spray the bolts with rust penetrant on and off for a few days, thats should to the trick. Sorry i could not provide you with better info, good luck guy

Re: 4'th gen starter:

I did a search on www.f-body.com , and it looks like you have to drop that Y-pipe.

Re: 4'th gen starter:

You make me sad

Oh well, it has to be done. I guess I can't complain - I have access to a lift any time I want, and I got the starter discounted purdy good. Alrighty - dropping the pipe it is.

Thanks a lot, Eric. I was hesitant to do this job without know that I absolutely HAD to drop that pipe first. I'll just get out the eye goggles and elbow grease.

Re: 4'th gen starter:

Not a super hard job and you don't have to drop the entire cross-pipe assembly. Remove all the bolts from the headers to the cross pipe and lossen the one on the catalytic converter. Once the bolts are off/loose, you can pull the cross pipe down and back a bit- just enough to get the starter out. Once you have enough room, you can pull off the starter cables and pull out the starter. Make sure you put the cables back on before you put the starter back- it's a real bear trying to put them on while the starter is mounted.
