Default 04 timing chain replacement

hey everyone,
I am in middle of getting my timing chain replaced. I've watched a couple of youtube videos and read a few threads - none of them mention anything about removing the starter. do we have to? the FSM says to do it but it also exaggerates. any word of advise on this?
thank you all!

okay what I'm really asking is...is it enough to lock up the balancer with universal pulley lock to remove the bolt or I gotta lock the flywheel as well? this is the whole reason for starter removal

Starter does not need to be removed.everytjing else has to be unbolted .power steering pump pushed to the side.you don't even have to undo the hoses to it..there is one bolt in the back of it that is a bitch to get to but a swivil on long extension or ratchet wrench the folds.

thank you, yes I am past that. I used bunch of extensions for that back bolt to get a ratchet in and it came off like nothing.
do you have any other recommendations? I got crank pulley, rh mount and oil pan to remove to get the cover off at this point

thanks bud, will keep that in mind...did your lower oil pan come with a gasket? I took mine off today and it's just the RTV sealant. read a few threads online and everyone jumping all over about adding a gasket w/ rtv or not
