    I've got a dying starter on my 1995 960 sedan and want to replace it
    myself. On all my previous cars this has been an extremely easy job
    requiring no special tools and doable in under an hour. I haven't even
    looked for the starter yet on this car, but suspect that it may be
    "buried." Can someone let me know what obstacles, if any, there are
    that I need to know about before I start, like special tools, items
    that have to be removed first, etc? The quote I got for a starter
    replacement was about US$500 ($260 for an aftermarket part and 3 hrs
    labor). The 3 hours of labor was a red flag for me. I trust the shop
    but am hoping they either confused my car with another model or even
    though it's 3 hours, it IS doable by a backyarder like me if I'm
    willing to spend the time and don't mind having to buy a special tool
    or 2.
