Ok, I've read a few threads regarding starters, but none seem to have the answer to my problem.
Little over a month ago, I went up to Uwharrie and got the Jeep stuck in a pretty sizeable mud puddle. Then about two weeks later, the Jeep wouldn't start. Pulled fuzes and the cables, and eventually I got it started. Took it to the dealership and they told me they cleaned out the starter because it was full of mud, but if it didn't work again, then it wouldn't be covered under warranty and 350 would get me a new starter.
Well, yesterday it stopped working again. So I am trying to fix it myself. I jacked it up, pulled off the bottom bolt and the heat shield. Come to find that there is still a ton of mud on it and in it, which just pisses me off because now it seems like they didn't do anything.
What is the best way to get to that top bolt for the starter? I am having a hellacious time getting anything in there without pulling off the body. Or is there another way that I can get in to clean it without having to pull it completely off?
