SLK320 Starter replacement

Let me Preface with - sorry no pics. but I will try to detail the best I can quickly.

1. Disconnect the Battery
2. while car is on ground remove Top starter bolt. it is easier to get to from the top.
3. Jackup front of car, put jack stand under car, remove passenger side wheel.
4. disconnect starter trigger cable, smaller of the 2 cables.
5. remove bottom starter bolt. kinda a pain to reach behind CAT, but it can be done without removing.
6. slide out starter from bell housing manipulate it to face up so you can remove the Main Lead.
7. use a ball joint remover, to disconnect tie-rod end from passenger side spindle.
8. remove bolt from passenger side idle arm (do not have to disconnect from track rod) bult uses a #12 E-Torx on top.
9. turn steering wheel all the way to the right. after you do this you should be able to manipulate it out without removing any exhaust components, or the motor mount.

to put in do in reverse order.
