Default Replacing Starter on 01 Sportage

Hey, lol, I just posted a thread trying to troubleshoot why my car wouldn't work, but as I was explaining the problem, I more-and-more convinced myself it was the starter that's shot.

Could anyone tell me how to replace a starter on a 2001 KIA Sportage (4wd, manual if it matters)?

Thanks in advanced,

Those are OK instructions, but they should include unbolting the front driveshaft 4WD models. There is no way I could have gotten that starter out of there if I hadn't. Also, if you remove the battery and battery tray, you can get to the wiring before you drop the starter.

I started to replace the starter on mine, (automatic) got as far as the three mounting bolts... I couldn't even feel the third one let alone get a wrench back there. There are some jobs that are better left to men with smaller hands. I took it into a garage to have it done. Only took them a couple hours.

You are correct, sir. That third bolt is totally blind. I was able to sneak a mirror up there to make sure I was removing the right bolt, then I had to use my air ratchet to remove it. There wasn't enough room to get even one "click" out of my regular ratchet.
