you are exactly right ,it took about 6 hours by the time I got finished as I let cure a day as well used the copper peramtex,but could not believe this Job, I had a arsenal of extensions ,knuckles and took out everthing possible to get my big bear paws in there,even the transmission electronics had to go ,but got r done but it was a B,to say the least,did a video for others if they wanted to attemp you would think they would put it in a more acessible place ,but changed the starter as well and the specs on that was to take off the exhaust manifold to get it out off there but got tricky on them I took the oil filter out instead and just had enough room to get the old out and new in,what were they thinking when they built this car,just the battery is half a days work,oh well thank god I had the time,thank you for info
