05 Kangoo 1.6 Auto Starter Motor

Hi Guys,

I'm trying to help my neighbour change his starter motor and am having trouble accessing the bolts that hold it in place.
I've managed to remove 2 but the 3rd is inaccessible due to the wiring loom.
On the end of part of the wiring loom is a grey connector about 100mm in size, with a white sliding clip.
I've prized the clip out about 25mm but the connector still will not release, the other end seems free but the clip side is well stuck.
I haven't worked on renault's before and am very wary of damaging anything.
Could someone please advise me how to separate the connector so that I can move the loom out of the way.
Any help would be most appreciated.

Cheers

Andy

Finally got the connector off, it needs to slide approx 40mm but takes a fair bit of persuasion.

Just an update for anyone else who has to tackle the job.
Access to the bolts is a real pain thanks to Renault, but if you know how to get access then I think you could do the job in 2/3hrs.
Remove the expansion tank and any other brackets which prevent access to the bolts, and then use the bolt holes to secure tie wraps which pull the wiring loom away and give access.
If you disconnect the grey connector and the sensor connections you can access underneath, there is enough play to get to the bolts.
There is a connector to the solenoid which is hidden, but once the starter is loose there is plenty of room to turn it and access the bolt.
Starter is held in with 3 13mm bolts accessed from above, the solenoid has a 10mm nut accessed from under the wheel arch, and an 8mm nut (hidden) which you can remove from underneath.
