Any tips on removing the starter? The lower bolt wasn't hard to reach, but it the top one is tough to get to. How much other stuff do I need to take off to get to it? Anything especially tricky or hard? All advice appreciated!

Yes, getting to it is hard. I just did so on my 1996 Prizm, just by going over and almost directly above the bolt, with a wrench that pivots. You need a 9/16th bolt I think.

I did take out the air filter assembly and hose to give me more space. That tended to work. Also, I unplugged a couple of electrical connections. Overall though, stuborness is what you need...

Hope this helps.

I ahve the 94 lsi and cannot find the starter. I have a book that tells me to take off the air filter and then get to it that way, but when I did that the starter wasn't there. Do I get to it from underneath? Anyone have a pic or diagram of this make, model and year?

it is really not bad it is on the bottom of the engine. When I did mine on a 95 I removed the air intake and some of the emissions equip. after that I had it out and the new one in in about 45 min.
