Re: Help

Just put a block of wood on the oil pan so you don't bend it, loosen the nuts, then push up to remove the weight of the mount, and replace.

definitely not that easy. i tried it, and finally got it done, but what a PITA. i had to remove the entire bracket that the mounts are bolted on to. then trying to get the motor lined back up again without an engine hoist...pshh forget it. let's just say i'm very glad i was able to get it back together.

I didn't even pull the brackets. I was lucky enough to get to do the driver's side 4 times, though. With the engine out of the way, it's easy to get your hand to the backside to catch the nuts.
