1999 Chevrolet Silverado

I need to replace the starter on my 1999 Chevy Silverado 1500 (5.3 liter 115K miles). I have gotten the two bolts off, but am having trouble getting the darn thing out. Is there any easier way? Should I be removing the wires prior to getting it out? It feels like there is not enough room to back it all the way out. Please help! Thanks.
There should be a plastic shield on the transmission bellhousing. It is held on with one small bolt. Removing this will give you a little moe room. As far as getting the starter out, it's tough but it will come out with the wires attatched.A couple good curse words usually works for me.
