I ordered the starter last night and will install over the weekend, I heard it's a PITA on an xi any insight? I looked at the DIY in the forum people were talking about a 7 hour job to replace. Any experience with an xi will be appreciated?

how did you get to the starter to tap it? I have looked at the engine and its all wrapped in plastic and np part can be seen. I have your exact same problem and suspect the starter but can reach it to checkand/or tap so I can at least start to take to a mechanic. Please help!!!!
