In reply to a message from Ant XJR sent Sun 13 Feb 2011:
That is the reason I didn’t change mine !
The oil filter and housing is well forward of the starter
motor bolt in question so presence or otherwise shouldn’t
affect getting this bolt out.
Best wishes from Jim Butterworth
If in doubt, take the easy way out and do nothing !–
The original message included these comments:
Watched an X300 starter motor top bolt removal this week. First the
gearbox frame bolts to chassis were removed, to allow gearbox frame
to drop a few inches but supported whilst car on ramp. This allowed
just enough space to see top bolt with torch and unbolt with
articulated spanner. Took 15 mins in hands of good mechanic to get
starter motor off. Oil filter and oil filter housing was off
already but dont know if this relevant.
