Well - good news bad news.......first let's get the bad out of the way.......this is what I have in the manual........so I don't have a visual on removing or replacing the mount.
CUTLASS & MALIBU ONLY (3.1L & 3.4L)
NOTE: Removal and installation procedure given on these vehicles only due to the complicated procedure involved.
With that - well - the good news - we can do what we can to work through this together.......
The web site......thanks for that but I need your VIN to see...........
Next - thanks for the info but you didn't give me the engine size in liter and my information is only listed as liter and model of car such as the K.....and I have many to choose from. So when you can please provide the liter.
Okay - I have attached another pic but shows the mount from the frame side. If I understand you correctly the mount part you are having problems with mounts to this part where I have the arrow? Yes?
So you have the bots off where it mounts to that mount but not where it mounts to the engine and you said you can not get to it due to a pulley. Which pulley? On many of the models I have worked on the pulleys if they have bolts on them either have holes in them so you rotate the pulley to the position you need to put the tool or they press on/off like power steering pulleys many times. Which is your case?
Can you send a couple of pics of what you are looking at?
You do have a jack under your engine and it is braced - yes?
If the pic in m head is correct on what you are talking about - if you disconnect the mount connected to the engine from the mount on the frame - at that point can't you jack the engine up just enough to clear getting the belt out between them?
Waiting to hear back from you...........
