Re: Joys of changing a starter
The worst thing i can remember on my own vehicles has been the A/C compressor on my 2011 Tacoma. when you see where that thing is you look at it and go, "now how the hell am i going to get that out of there?" Remove, replace and recharge A/C was an all day deal. I cant remember exactly how it came out, but i remember going in through the wheel well to remove the bolts, and there was alot of 1/8 turns with a wrench due to the location of some of the bolts.
These Ford 6.4/6.7 diesels are a nightmare too. I dont know what we have been fixing/replacing on them, but occasionally i see one on the lift with the front end tore off of it and lots of parts laying around it. it seems like the condenser, charge air cooler and radiator have to come out to do anything in there. That engine was shoe horned into that engine compartment.
