I know what you mean... I hate that. Sometimes it's just a matter of getting the right length socket extention or other tool. Other times you just have to remove other hardware, such as the manifold or a motor mount, to get to the bolt. Good luck.
Kryptonitefusion (03/11/07): I don't remember excatly but you should just need a long enough extention and probably something to hold the nut in order to loosen the bolt. if that's too hard i think u might want to try lowering the transmission...i don't recommend removing the intake manifold or lowering the tranny, u shouldn't need to.
The easiest way to get to the top starter bolt is with 12" extension and a 13 mil socket. You have to feel your way between the solenoid and the block. You can only take the starter off from the top if the engine is on a engine stand

The starter solenoid is located on the top of the starter.

Hello, I have a 96 Toyota Tercel that has a starter that is not working. I am having a difficult time finding any answers about the top bolt which holds the starter on the engine. I got every bolt off except for that mysterious top bolt. I have never seen anything quite this difficult before. I will try to answer when I find the solution.
Bolt it up in the same position as the old one, then connect the battery cable to the back bolt and the starter cable to the front bolt, then the ignition wire to the little bolt on top.
By removing the passenger side engine top nut, this one & the same that pass thru starter! mission done!
In my crx a mount gets in the way of a long bolt that needs to come off but if you can get at it and take it off then it can be taken out form the top of the enigne yes.

On the V6 engine the bottom bolt is accessible from under the truck easily but not the top one. You can remove the right front tire and wheel and access it.

Not sure what you mean by back bolt ? There are 2 bolts holding the starter on. They both screw into the starter from the back. there is one on the bottom and accessed from underneath, and the one on the top is accessed from the top. Unhook the battery ground and remove the air box to gain access to the top bolt.
top of engine bay 2ft or longer extension 13mm swivel socket
First remove the battery cables from the battery. Remove the electrical connections to the starter and label for replacement. There are 3 bolts - 13mm. The bottom bolt is also the ground terminal, therefore you will need a deep socket for that bolt. The other two are accessable ideally with about a 7" extension to your socket wrench. The top bolt is on the top of the starter and I could fit my hand up there to feel it and place the socket. The 3rd bolt is between the bottom and top bolts. Remove the 3 bolts and the starter falls right out. I replaced with a remanufactured, lifetime warranty starter from Pep Boys for about $120.
