I've managed to take the 3 fasteners off. So the shield is loose. I tried unsuccessfully to use a rubber mallet to get the darn thing off.....no success. Twist, turn, pry.....no remedy.
My next option, I thought, maybe if I remove the 2 starter bolts...I can find some room to wiggle it loose. Still unable to remove shield and starter.
If I continue to fail, do you recommend that I remove the exhaust pipe so I can remove the shield and starter?
Another question is how do I remove the 2 wire connectors, I fear I may damage them trying during removal
Thanks for your continued help!
