2007 jeep grand cherokee limited starter issue

I got this jeep just after Christmas. It runs great. A few weeks ago it would click when I try to start it. I ole oils try it a couple more times and it would start up. Last week it would only click. I ordered a starter and went to see about changing it and jacked it up, disconnected the battery and realized this is going to be a pain. I reconnected the battery and tried to start it and it started right up. I'm thing a loose connection but I can barely get to the starter much less check the connections. Any ideas?

I tried this morning and got nothing but a click. Tonight I'm going to try and check the connections. Very difficult to get to.

Thank you for the information. I looked at it last night and I moved the positive connection to the battery back and forth and it started right up. I am pretty sure it is a loose connection but I can't get to the starter to check the connections. I am going to attempt to check them tonight when I get off work.
