Sonoma Starter R & R

Recommended Posts

Hi guys & gals,  I have a 1995 Sonoma, reg cab, 5spd, V-6, 4X4, a/c.  I need to replace my starter.  Have viewed several youtube vids.  Most show having to remove "shield" from flywheel area.  My truck doesn't show a shield.  So have any of you actually replaced a starter on this exact body/equip style p.u.?  I pulled the front rt wheel and crawled under.  It appears that I need to unbolt the clutch release cyl. But, it sits very close to the oil pan and I really don't want to drop that.  There is a metal bracing rod that I can remove for a little more room to drop the starter from underneath.  I will need to be careful about bending the clutch release cyl because of condition of the tubing.  Removing the exhaust manifold from a 25 year old truck doesn't sound like much fun.


So, has anyone here "been there, done that"?  I could really use some tips.  Thanks Zeekid
