SOURCE: I have a 2002 saturn sl it wont start and i'm

Hello. No, there is no access through the back seat. You have to remove the gas tank. You have to remove the exhaust pipes to get to the gas tank. The best way to get to it is to put the car on a lift. Once you remove the tank you will see it on top it is one piece connected to the fuel gauge and the entire thing is inserted on the top side. It is hard to get to because there is no access panel under the back seat.

SOURCE: where is the starter on

if it is a 2.2L ecotec, the starter is on the front of the engine, more or less below and to the left of the battery. on the other hand if it is a 1.9L the starter is on the back of the engine and you are not going to get at it unless you have a lift and a good tool set. i think the S type had the 1.9L and the L type had the 2.2, i am only familiar with 99 and older S types. my 01 L had a 2.2L.
