HOW TO CHANGE STARTER MOTOR

2000 Jaguar S-Type

Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Jaguar S-Type V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 110000 miles

I am attempting to change the starter motor in the car. Looks like the nut at bottom of starter motor was welded by factor. This is the same nut/bolt that the negative cable was attached to. Is this normal?

I don't want to strip the bolt. Will not move.

Is there an easy way to get to the top bolt of starter with out taking most of the car a part?

Help, stuck
