    I have to replace my starter motor because is giving signs is about to fail.
    I saw one time, when the intake pipes were off the car, that it can be reached from above.
    Is there something else I should know or can it be removed without too much effort?

    My engine is the 2.0 TDI BKD.

    Fairly simple, remove intake, its right below, undo the connector, then undo the nut with the big wire, unbolt the 2 hex bolts, iirc, then remove sideways up at an angle, install in reverse.
