Starter replacement... question?

I need to replace the starter on my 1994 GS. Does anyone know if the exhaust needs to be removed to do the job. Coming in from underneath I can see the CV joint will need to come down in order to access the starter but Haynes says the front part of the exhaust needs to come down as well. I just dont see it as necessary. Thanks

Thanks

Here is a DIY that I found awhile back that should be able to help you out...

" DIY- Starter Replacement
For starter removal/replacement the factory service manual says to take off the exhaust Y-pipe. This can escalate the job (broken studs, poor access, re-sealing the system, etc) but as others have said here there is another way to do it.

By partially removing the axle the starter can be changed without disturbing the exhaust system. Loosening the axle nut and separating the ball joint can be tough - but there are more options for prevailing there. No need to completely remove the axle - pinch bolt can remain. With the axle out of the hub and slid out of the differential you can reach the starter.

The 2 starter bolts have 14mm heads. The lower one is easy - the top one's location is the reason the manual suggests removing the exhaust - you can barely see it - it needs long extensions and a universal from behind/below. But taking down the exhaust really doesn't change the difficulty of loosening this bolt. I used a 6-point socket and put something beside the socket to guide it. Hope this is useful - figured I'd post while the experience is fresh. "
