Re: EA Engine mounts

You need to lift the motor and yes it's time consuming and a little awkward. Expect skinned knuckles and have a wide variety of varying size socket extension bars handy as the bolts are not very accessible.

Re: EA Engine mounts

Time consuming???
Not with the right tools. You don't even need to "lift" the engine if you're clever. Undo the thru-bolt and remove it. Then lever the engine across with something (i used a bit of 2"x3"), block it in place. Get under the car and undo the remaining 3 bolts of the mount.

Installation is the reverse. Then do the same on the drivers side.
What is so hard about that? Its like 15 mins per side IF THAT!

Also i'd use poly mounts on both sides if you have any sort of power in your motor. I've busted 2 mounts already next time i'm going polyurethane.
