Um, it's not?

It took me 30 minutes.


I used a factory jack, and a 10" section of 2x4 on the oil pan to hold the motor up.

Taking the passenger side wheel, and wheel well liner off will help.

Come one man, you have built engines and shit.

How hard could a Trans mount be?

be easy, i havent been wrenching for awhile, and i have little to no experience with the 9-3 chassis. i guess air tools and a cherry picker instead of 2 jacks should be helpful? i dont have a jack i trust under the motor if i use my good one for the car.

Well, you should hold the car up with a jackstand, thus freeing the good jack for your motor.




It's pretty easy.


The bolt in the middle of the mount is an 8mm hex.

Once you get in there, you will be able to figure it out.

tranny mount was fairly easy.

palmer, why would you remove passenger wheel when playing with tranny mount? did you mean engine mount?

I think he meant the driver side fender arches (not sure), it gives you a whole lot more room to install it i know that

The mount is cake. No cherry picker was needed when I did the one on my car.

The dash....make sure you clean the one you're putting it on very well. Test fit it a few times.

Whoops.

Hey, it was late.


I did not remove the wheel for the trans mount.


You have to for the engine mount.
