Default Re: 04 Vue 3.5 won't crank turnover

Thanks very much for posting your approach. I used the same, and it worked nicely. One thing that threw me, was the placement of the rear battery tray bolt - it's BEHIND the front bracket for the fuse box, which rests on top of the battery tray. To gain access and keep things moveable, remove the two front 10mm fuse bracket nuts, and the rear fuse box bracket nut, located next to the strut tower nut.

Here's what the end of the starter looks like, once you clear the battery tray out of the way...
