I have owned Japan cars all my driving life except this Cadillac sts. It seems to be about 10X harder to change the Starter. What the heck?

i have a 2007 Cadillac SRX AWD. I couldnt get starter out from underneath (between cat. converter and steering rack). i turned it end to end – upside down – side to side and it wouldnt come out. Plan B —– i started looking for another hole. I found one on drivers side above the rear of the lower control arm and above the tie rod that goes into the steering rack. I had already taken the drivers side steering rack bolt out and the passenger side bolt loose but couldnt take the bolt out because mine is a AWD and the top of bolt hit the front drive shaft. i did this thinking i could move steering rack a little for clearance so i could drop starter out the botton. couldnt move steering rack enough. The steering rack would move a little bit but not enough. so at this point- steering rack is still loose. This is when i found the side hole behind left tire and above the rear of lower control arm and above the tie rod that goes into the steering rack. I tried to get the starter out of this hole now. Remember the steering rack is still loose at this point( it moves a little bit). Couldnt get it out of the side hole because a wire with a connector was pluged into a round thing , that is part of the steering rack . The plug has a locking tab on the top of it . Push down tab and pull plug off. With the plug off it gives you just enough room to remove the starter. I took mine out with flat end of starter pointing down and the selinoid facing towards the rear. I dont know if having the steering rack loose helped or not. If you cant get it out loosen the steering rack and that might give you the 1/8 inch you need. Also there is a soft and hard brake line that might hamper your efforts. Just gently kinda push on them for clearance. STARTER IS OUT . NOW PUSH NEW STARTER UP IN HOLE WITH CONE (GEAR END) POINTING UP AND SELINOID FACING THE REAR OF THE CAR. I DONT KNOW IF YOU HAVE TO LOOSEN THE STEERING RACK FOR SURE BECAUSE I ALREADY HAD IT LOOSE. I DID HAVE TO REMOVE THAT PLUG THAT GOESTO THE STEERING RACK THOUGH. GOOD LUCK!! I MIGHT ADD THAT MY FRONT TIRES WERE RESTING ON RAMPS AND NOT HANGING DOWN IF THAT MATTERS.

Thanks for your help. I got the starter bolts out. Knock sensor out and disconnected pos and neg. My starter won’t move do I need to pry on it?

You don't need to remove the cat
