Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Bravada
This is actually a pretty common problem, i had the same issue on a pickup, i ended up cutting the wires and splicing in and extra 8 inches of wire to allow the starter to drop far enough to gain access the next time i needed to do a starter job on it. you can also wire in quick disconnects once you get to that point to make it easier on you. just make sure you make good, tight connections. you can get the ends you need at any parts store, i used male and female insulated spade connections on mine, havnt have any issues with it since an that was about 15 thousand miles ago. if i remeber right the quick disconnect kit was about 80 bucks and i was just to cheap to spend the money so i made my own. try looking at painless wiring's web site. as far as the main power lead goes dont cut it and try any splicing, if you need it to be longer just go buy a longer one, they arent to spendy. another option may be to remove the exhaust manifold above the starter to gain access or remove the tire and go in thru the wheel well to get to it. hope this helps
