Hey guys I am having a hell of a time removing the IM. I have undone all of the intake, fuel pump stuff, vacuum, etc, as well as the IM fasteners themselves. There appears to be some support bar in the way...only site that mentions it is on the cobalt forum. I cant get the IM off the studs, it will not move enough and I am wary of putting a ton of force into it. I jacked the car up and looked around the starter and its a mess of wires and of course obfuscated by the starter. There has to be an easier way? What is the procedure?

Must be something else. When I pulled one, the worst parts were the HPFP shield and that support brace. Just wiggled it off the studs. Make sure you got all the bolts.

Back out there today and still wrestling with it. Am I reading right that nobody has had an issue with this support bar? Do you guys even have one? Maybe this was unique as mine is an early production 07?

edit: I finally was able to dig around and found the mounting bolt on the block is nestled behind the vacuum pump (im guessing?) and next to the crank sensor....I guess itll be a snake of extensions and u-joints to get to it, looks fun.
