I've never done this before. Do have socket set and also jack but no stands and no hoist. Very limited space hard to remove the holding bolt for the starter.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hello,

I would absolutely recommend not getting under a vehicle without it being supported properly on jack stands. There have been countless cases of people getting seriously injured and even killed by getting under a improperly supported vehicle. I have a few links for you to go to down below:

Please go through these guides and get back to us with what you are able to find out, please.

Thanks,
