Per the manual.
1) Disconnect battery ground cable.
2) Remove air cleaner case and air intake duct.
3) Remove air intake chamber stay.
4) Disconnect connector and terminal from starter.
5) Remove starter from transmission.
6) Install in the reverse order of removal.
Tightening torque:
50±4 N·m (5.1±0.4 kg-m, 37±2.9 ft-lb)

Starter 1998 Forrester

Any helpful hints as to how to remove the bottom nut on the starter? it is a real pain in the donkey to get to. I was thinking of an impact wrench with a universal socket? Thanks, DJB:Banane36:
