If you are trying to take off a Honda Passport starter or an Isuzu Rodeo starter on a 4x4 model, you are going to find out that it is wedged up under the drivers side exhaust and you can't fit it through the opening without taking the exhaust off.
The first step is to soak the 3 nuts on the exhaust manifold with PD Blaster spray. I would recommend that it sits over night if possible. Next you need to heat up the nuts. Some people say to use a blow torch, but is you run the car for about 10 minutes it will heat up for you ( this only works if your starter still works at all , mine was hit or miss working) Most likely you will have to use a blow torch.

The nuts are 17mm and you will need to use an impact. If you try to us a cheater bar, you may break off the sud and you are in a world of hurt then.

After you get the 3 nuts off, you will find that you still can't get the exhaust off over the studs.

You will need to remove the exhaust hanger that is about half way down the side of the vehicle. Next you want to look for the flange that is next to the flex pipe. If you can remove the bolts, then do that. If not you can either cut off the bolts with a saws-all or just cut the exhaust pipe. You can get new bolts or a section of exhaust pipe from the auto parts store.

Now the exhaust will slide over the studs and you can remove the starter. There are just 2 bolts that hole the starter in place
