MY DIY - Starter Replacment on E53 4.4L

Well, this is my second major DIY project on "Sturm", my 2003 X5 4.4L. As some of you might know, I had a weird sound occurring on start up. It was determined to be a faulty starter (Thank you to all that responded to that thread).

I replaced the starter today and it seemed to do the trick. I am grateful for all the tips I learn from this board. I have learned so much in so little time about the E53.

I thought it would be nice to finally be able to contribute something back. I apologize for not getting as many pictures as I'd hoped. Hopefully this thread will help someone else who might be faced with this issue.

I have created a PDF file but apparently it is way too big to upload on here. Any tips on how to post the PDF? I will also try to upload the document as images.

Cheers!

Ricky Bobby will become famous soon enough
Awesome write up man, definitely well thought out and I think it might apply to more than just the 4.4 as well (or at least the general concept), very helpful and will be useful in the future to many!
