How do you get to the back bolt to replace the starter on a 2004 honda crv? The last time I replaced a starter on vehicle was in the 1980's and it was easy.

May have to jack up engine slightly to gain access. Below are the proper replacement procedures..

Eveybody keeps telling me to remove the two bolts, but what do I need to do to access the rear bolt? I just can't seem to reach it.

Would raising the engine slightly help you reach it? If so, loosen the engine mount and slightly raise the engine up some with a floor jack

Hondas aren't like other motors. Theres not a lot of space to move around. It's not simply remove the bolts, disconnect the power, then reverse the process. This isn't a 1977 Gremlin. The correct answer is: Remove the manifold. THEN take out the starter.

Thanks for guessing anyway.

Wasn't guessing, was telling you to RAISE THE ENGINE. Glad you got it fixed.
