Question Starter

If my starter were to fail is it true that i would have to take out my whole passenger side header to get it out?? or is this a problem only on the corvettes??

They should cover the starter. And yes, you probably have to pull a portion of your exhaust. Most vehicles do now days.

Unless you're past your 36,000 Mile Bumper to Bumper Warranty, you are good to go!! Your signature block states you own a 2012, so you're not past your 3 years..... As for the 5 Year/100,000 Mile Power Train Warranty, I'm not sure if that'd be covered or not.

STARTER

Starters are not under the powertrain warranty.. 5 year 100,000 mile.

Doesn't look like you have to take off any exhaust stuff, just the engine mount..

Preliminary Procedure
 1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Refer to Battery Negative Cable Disconnection and Connection.
 2. Raise and support the vehicle. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle.
 3. Remove the left engine mount. Refer to Engine Mount Replacement - Left Side.
4. Remove starter.

Still not sure why everyone is so scared to pull the headers... All you need is new gaskets and they bolt right back up... And if your car is under warranty, it's a dealer issue, not yours. If the starter broke on my 2013 I'd bust somebody's ass at the dealership if they told me they weren't gonna fix it.
