Starter Change Advice

Turn the key, click. Checked my connections on it and their good, batterys are fully charged also. So I bought a new starter and I'll install the new starter tomorrow, just looking for some advice on whats the easiest way to pull out that top bolt. The bottom bolt was already out, pulled out the other easy one, just have that last top bolt that I'll pull out tomorrow. So is it easiest to go in from underneath or from the wheel well?

Double check your battery post. A while back I thought my starter was out but it was the stock positive clamp that had broke on the passenger side.

Go from underneath. Use a very long or multiple extensions. Make sure you disconnect the batteries. It is fairly easy to change out. Don't over-torque (18 lb-ft) and use thread-locker.
