How do you remove the starter motor on a 2000 chevy s10 (2.2L)

Resolved Question:

How do you remove the starter motor on a 2000 chevy s10 (2.2L)? I have removed the 2 bolts that hold the starter in place and yet seem to not have enough room to disconnect the wiring and pull the starter completely out. Any advice on removal would be great!

    Remove the starter heat shield.

    Temporarily reinstall the starter bolts to hold the starter in place for wiring removal.

    Use 1/4" drive ratchet and sockets to remove wiring from starter solenoid.

    I have removed the engine to transmission brace rod. It now seems that the exhaust is in the way. I do not have access to the solenoid to remove the wiring. Do I have to remove the exhaust as well?
    Expert:  Dave Nova replied 7 years ago.
    I have in the past dropped the exhaust for additional clearance. Make sure to lubricate the nuts on the exhaust with WD40 prior to removal.
