Default 2000 Honda Accord Starter help (2.3L 4-cyl auto)

I'm trying to remove/replace the starter in my 2000 Accord, but I'm having trouble getting to the bolt in the back side of the starter. I can't fit any socket/wrench to get a good grip on the bolt. I'm not sure what I can remove to get some more room.

I'm pretty new at DIY so any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thx

Have you removed starter wires and coolant line? Disconnect battery negative terminal before removing any wires.

Autozone has a pretty good guide but no help w/ difficult rear bolt. You may need a "wobbly" extension to allow a bit more alignment flexibility. I've found wobbly extentions to be a great help.

good luck

Thanks, the "wobbly" extension did the trick. Once I was able to get the bolt spinning, I used a ratchet wrench to get it out. After that it was smooth sailing. Pretty quick job overall, that hardest part by far was maneuvering to get that back bolt loose. Appreciate the help.

Thanks for followup.

I am not that familiar w/ the 98-2001 series Accords and was unsure about starter, but the AZ photos showed it to be similar to 94-97 Accords, hence my advice.

good luck
