    2003 suburban, trying to change the starter but i can't get it to clear the bell housing. Won't pull out far enough, wires are still attached. Do I have to unhook them first? I can barely even see the connections let alone get a wrench on them.

    Pain in the a**. Should have paid someone. How did you get to them from the top? I can barely see them through the wheel well.

    I put it back in and ended up going to my local mechanic. Glad I did, Auto Zone had given me the wrong starter to begin with. My mechanic laughed at the auto zone starter. He said it was a piece of sh**. He got me a Delco starter for just 20 bucks more and 70 for the install. I learned a lesson about Auto Zone!
