    Help. I am trying to replace the starter on my 1988 Volvo 780. I took
    out the two rear bolts but it still won't budge. Chiltions mentions
    something about a rear bracket, if installed. I do see a sort of
    cover/bracket on the rear of the starter, but I cant see what it is
    bolted to with all that stuff in the way. I can see a bolt running
    sideways that may be holding it to the block or something. I am
    working on it from the bottom of the car and have not removed the oil
    filter as Chiltons suggests for a V6, since it doesn't seem to be in
    the way.

    How do you get this starter off?

    Nevermind. I figured it out. Two stinking bolts hold the rear bracket
    to the block. One on top that you cant see, but you can feel. Thanks
