How big a job is it to remove the lower air box on the F's?? I need to gain access to the flex drive part of the starter where it attaches to the flywheel pinion. I need to get some loctite on the allen jam nuts.

It's about a 2 hour job to remove and replace.

The seat!???? Do I have to remove the snow flap and track too??!! lol!! Thanks for the replies. Maybe I'll try to make an extend-o allen key first to get to those jam nuts.

You don't have to remove the seat or the rear spar panel if you're really good with an open wrench on the nuts that hold the side spar to the rear spar panel. You can have the main air box out in 5 mins either way after the first time.
