Totally impossible to remove top bolt on old starter motor.
No spanner/socket seems to fit.
No space to work etc.etc.
I have given up and will be calling someone in to remove the old one. This till leaves me with the problem of what to do if it is full of metal dust.
It would seem to me that it is not possible to clean out dust without removing the clutch housing. Furthermore it's not worth fitting the new starter without first cleaning all the dust out. What I don't know is whether at this stage (67K miles) it is worth replacing the whole flywheel to avoid the same problem cropping up again in the near future.
Can anyone advise
