My starter finally died, I got the 3 of the 4 bolts off but couldn't get to the last one (green arrow in the attached pic). Is there a way to get at it without removing either the intake manifold or transmission? Or MUST the intake come off? Fack 2 parties to git to and no car this weekend.

put 2 bends in a wrench and put it on the trans side, hold the wrench with a loooong pair of needle nose pliers
I was able to do it without bending the wrench but it makes it easier
for the eng compartment side, loooong extensions and a u joint are your friends.

Yes guy I got it back in. I used a long screwdriver in between the nut and bolt and twisted it while using a socket with extension to get that last bolt off from the engine side. *th-up*
