W123 230E uses engine M102.92#, which has starter mounted to left side of block (viewed from driving position). If the vehicle is left-hand drive variant, '''removal of steering box-arm (a k a Pitman arm) is suggested''' to allow necessary clearance for removal. Alternately it may be possible to separate one end of center-link (a k a drag link) from steering arm. If vehicle is right-hand drive version, instead of steering box-arm, the '''idler-arm is removed from body mount''' (leave it attached to center-link and tie-rod). Either way, the arm removal allows pulling part of steering linkage downward to provide better access to starter motor.
