Starter motor removal - diesel by PaulT

This is related to my question about crankshaft pulley bolt.

Haynes says remove starter motor and use a lever to stop the engine turning. .

Following Haynes, remove engine cover, remove air intake duct undo two bolts and the motor falls out (a little poetic licence)

My car is a facelift and there is a flexible duct across the top bolt or so it seems. It does not seem flexible enough to move.

Am I missing something?
