RE: [DML] Replacing Motor & Manual Tranny Mounts



Are you sure that the transmission mounts have to be removed first?  DMCH
charges more to replace the transmission mounts than to replace the engine
mounts (I had my engine mounts replaced recently, and put off the additional
work of replacing the transmission mounts because it was so much more
expensive.)  Surely there must be a simpler way...either that or DMCH has
their costs backwards.

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.
