Changing starter motor on Evo 6?

Is it really as simple as taking two bolts out, disconnecting the electrics, pulling it out and putting the new one in? Seems almost TOO easy.

Also, any reason why something off ebay should be avoided?

Err It may not be a Genuine Part for 'starters' (no pun intended)

Oh I'm 100% sure it's not, but from what I've seen genuine is £400 (!?) so I just want something that'll work rather than make sure it's genuine.....

dont forget to disconnect battery first. Obviously something people should always do, but often dont. Big heavy permanent live cable to it, makes a lot of sparks if it shorts

I cant remember, maybe downpipe off too, cant remember what access was like

I found when fitting a new starter ..either from underneath or passed it along the rear of the engine ( what I did ), a bit tight in places but you can get it through .

I've used that part, it does the job just fine! It's a 30 minute job to change the starter, it really is that easy! Disconnect the battery, jack car up, undo 2 bolts and the electrical connector and then wiggle it out!

So long as one of the bolts done shear off.

Then it's a frigging nightmare.
