Unlucky to have had the starter fail :o

Short 16mm offset ring spanner to undo the mount plus jack and block of wood to lift the engine :y

Moving the bottle won't hurt, but not necessary. Don't drain it, just pop the clip, slide the bottle out and plonk to one side ;)

If undoing that side doesn't give enough space, undo the other side as well and prop the sump on a block against the subframe.

I've done two relatively recently due to faulty solenoids - in both cases, I found it far easier to gain access to the starter motor mounting bolts ( to then to remove it from the engine) by undoing the three bolts for the alloy engine mounting bracket and removing it with the engine supported under the sump on a trolley jack.
