transmission mount (requires 2 of the inserts (the 2 that look similar)):

remove intake and battery, battey tray (both plastic one and metal, metal tray consist of 3 10mm bolts that are easily accessable)

remove top bolt (iirc its a 17mm) then support the transmission. repeat same process to remove the front mount then press the 2 inserts in and use the appropriate metal insert, again make sure to use the lube.

rear:
(the tcpete way) remove intake and shifter cables, reach down and remove the bracket, remove insert and press in new insert, again LUBE LUBE LUBE.


if you dont use the lube the inserts will squeek.

i hope this helps.
Dave,

For the front motor mount, when I installed it, I didn't jack up the engine like you said. Is it necessary that you do that?

I think you only need to jack up the motor if the center bolt wont fit. Also maybe for some extra insurance that the motor wont fall lol. But i dont think its necessary

front is cake.. no need to jack up motor.. unless you want extra play ( 3 bolts 14mm)

side is cake... u need a jack to support the tranny and lift it to have some play and slide the bolt through ..u need to take out the battery, the intake tube, and some other things in the way to correctly access the bolt with ease(5 14mm bolts to worry about for this mount or 2 if u wana get ballsy)


rear - remove intake, remove shifter cables with clips that hold them in and the cotter pins that hold it in place... u will need a jack to help move and adjust the motor height.... once the intake and cables are out just take the bolt off... wiggle the mount out.. and replace insert and re-install mount( 3 deep 14mm on the subframe and 1 regular 14mm bolt)


YOU DO NOT NEED A SHOP!!!! all OEM rubber mounted can be take out with a thick flat head and filips screw driver.... ALL mounts can be pressed in use a bench clamp or large twisting clamp.. anything that can be twisted to close and press the mount in... just lube the mount while u press it in.. u can also use a flat head to pry the rubber inward to help slide it in..

ITS EASY!!!! DO NOT GO TO A SHOP!.... just takes time..


it can be done in 1 day easy.. just a few hours.. the best thing to have is patient, some screw drivers, and if u have a bench clamp/table clamp that would be ideal if not any kind of clamp where turning is involved to clamp things down is fine.. even a cheap C clamp will work.

Pete, for the side mount and rear mount, where would be the best place to put the jack? I want to make sure to not damage the motor/transmission by placing the jack on the wrong spot. I may try finishing up this install later this week.

place a small peice of wood on the jack and place the jack on the outter most part of the tranny going outward to the wheels.. if your looking str8 at the car this means the jack would be placed on the right side of the tranny closest to black side of the bellhousing

this will give you the best and higest degree of adjustment. ..if u do not have wood its ok... just trying using something thats sturdy but has some softness to it.. i just put it str8 on and i was fine... but u never know... the block of wood is more for leverage than anything else...

did anyone else notice when they put the two pieces in the side mount that they did not line up exactly?

i can see why they would. (based on the load of the engine so that it makes it sit on a constant angle) i was jw if anyone else noticed that.

That motor is stuck there now. It's nice because it stopped my exhaust rattle too. I popped the hood and revved the engine and that sucker didn't budge a bit. It's so nice. I love starting the car everyday because I get to feel the car shake as it turns on. The car feels a lot better now.

So you can remove the rear mount from under the hood? im having trouble removing it this way because the bracket that holds the mount to the transmission seems to be in the way. Any tips on removing it from the top?
