Re: [DML] Replacing Motor & Manual Tranny Mounts



 
 
There are only four mounts on the car.  Both tranny mounts (manual  
anyway...) can be removed one at a time for replacement with no jacks, hoists,  etc...  
The engine mounts would require a hoist to lift the engine up a  little but 
in order to do that, you would have to remove the transmission mounts  to get 
the play you need.  Plus (this is really iffy) to lift the engine  that high, 
you would probably have to disconnect some wiring, a fuel line or  two, and 
almost definitely the two main coolant hoses.  And then, once you  get the engine 
out of the mounts (which is an adventure too!), what will you do  if one of 
the bolts that goes into the frame breaks off?  Do they really  need to be 
replaced?

I  haven't found a lot of information on replacing motor and  transmission
mounts - Can the engine be slightly lifted with a jack or  hoist to
replace these without actually pulling the engine?  Can  someone point me
to an article or  posting?
