Default 1998 Cobra Mustang, Starter Removal Assistance

I am trying to remove the starter on my 1998 Cobra Mustang and am running into some challenges. Has anyone removed their starter and if so, how many bolts are there to remove? I have pulled one so far and another that I am not 100% sure is holding the starter in place, as you cannot visibly see the bolt. My knuckles are pretty tore up and am having a heck of a time with this as the Hayes manual I have only says to remove the two bolts and pull the starter...well, that is much easier said then done-they obviously installed the starter whith the engine out of the car at the factory (maybe?)!

3 bolts and the top one u need to pull off the fender plastic and get a really long extension at least a foot if not more to get to it easier. When u are done leave the top one off I have had mine off for 4 years with no effect.

Default 1FT Extension...

WOW! I had no idea it would take such effort. I spent over 3 hours today trying to work it from underneath! Does anyone happen to know the size of bolt? The other two were 13mm, I am hoping it is the same but no luck today with extensions and joints. Even pulling the fender I wonder how much clearance I am going to have between the header and the lower control arm...anyways, it seems to have worked for you! I appreciate the advice, I will rip that thing out tomorrow and hopefully get it out, after that, off comes the cats and motor mounts...thanks again.

It took me about 15-30 minutes using about 2 feet of wobble-head extensions and a swivel going through the front of the k-member, no need to remove the fenderwell. The bolt should be the same size.
