Removing Oil Cooler Lines.
Disconnecting the lines, they will drain a little oil, not much though. You push in on the locking clip and turn I believe it was to disconnect the lines.

Starter, no need to remove, once the bolts are removed at the top of the bell housing the transmission will come free without the starter attached.
Removing... some are a tight fit and a few of them you will need like 30" in socket extensions in order to reach them i.e.: the starter bolts.
Be very careful. Make sure you are using the correct socket size. You do not want to strip these for your day will be done if that happens. You can measure the sockets up with the new bolts you bought from the dealer.
