I'd be inclined to believe them, there's not a lot of room down there. On the 2.2 Antara with 4X4 transmission you even have to remove the transfer box when changing the starter. Member Richy did a DIY write-up on it, see HEREMy local garage has told me to replace a steering rack they will need to remove the transfer box. Meaning a bill "possibly into four figures". Is this right? I cannot find any information on this anywhere.
