    I read a while back that you had pick up the engine a little to take the weight of f the bolt, or is that for the front mount? Good write up by the way.

    I replaced my front mount without jacking up the engine. Just jiggled it a bit by hand, it's not that hard.

    Edit: um, i guess i misread that post, nevermind.

    yes, you should put a jack under the engine (oil pan/trans - use a 2x4 across them for protection) and lift the engine just enought to take the weight off the single long bolt which goes through the mount itself. this will make it easier to slide the long bolt out.

    no jack needed for the front mount - there is barely any weight on that one at rest

    need help

    Got a problem how do you remove the back bracket that is holding the wire harness??? I took the nut off and it is still snug in there. Will the back one really make a difference? I have the front AWR mount on but that bracket is in my damn way.

    There are 2 nuts that you have to get off (aren't there always???). The one underneath is the one that's tough because you can't see it.

    Get both of those two off, and then you should disconnect the wire from the plastic harness. You don't need to, but it'll make your life much easier. Cut the electrical tape at the right side. The left side has a snap that has to be undone.

    Good luck.

    I got the bottom one off from under the car. I pulled off the crossmember to get to it. On my back looking up between the "frame" and the body I could actually see the bottom nut. My 10mm wrench was just long enough to reach the nut by holding the wrench with just the very edge of my finger and thumb tips. It was a PITA but that is the hardest part.

    I had just the front AWR 95D mount on for about 3 weeks and when I pulled off the rear stock mount it was ripped.

    Well good luck and have fun.

    I ended up dropping the metal spacer down into the engine bay and couldn't find it. So I put it back together with out the spacer. The bolt has enough threads on it to tighten down. I did leave the rubber grommet on the long bolt just because it came off the stock.

    After I got everything back together I found the spacer sitting on the half shaft. I didn't bother undoing everything just to put it back on

    Thanks so now I can tighten it all down and and see what it feels like to no have wheel hop, I almost said fu** it and just left the stock mount in there but then I am not a person that quits. I think the hardest part of the removal was getting that bracket out of the way. O h and it was a lot eaiser for me to put the 3/8 17mm on the bottom and hold the nut/ put the 1/2 17mm on the topside and take the long bolt out after supporting the engine. tried your way and almost stripped the bolt off. But either way good write up for gar777.
