Is there a better way or access to remove the engine mount upper on my car? Is there a procedure to replace the rear engine mount?
I looked on the rear of the engine (between the engine and the vehicle firewall) and the bottom of the vehicle. There is a very limit access to put the breaking bar on to remove the rear mounting bracket. I need a better way to remove it. If someone could help me on this topic, I would be able to make a donation on this website.
Please help.
Thank you

Hello Alex, I actually looked for the way to access to the bracket because there is not enough space around the rear engine mount. How do you use the breaker to remove the three bolts on the engine mount bracket?
I know that the rear engine mount is sitting on the bracket with three bolts. Part number is 50810-TA0-A02. The middle bolt is mounted on the top of the bracket which is sitting on the beam. The other two are mounted on the bottom below the mounting bracket.
What kind of technique to remove the mounting bracket and the engine mount? How do you remove them in that tiny area?
Thank you

Hello again,

Sometimes when there is little room to work with on the back of the engine you can remove the front motor mount and let the engine down in the front. It should give you a little more access.
Another way is the two wrench technique. Get the open end a wrench on the bolt. Take the open end of another wrench and put it in the box end of the first wrench. The second wrench should catch the first and act as a breaker bar providing you leverage. Works great.
Another way would be to employ wobbly u-joint sockets. They allow you to work at up to 45 degree angles from the bolt.
Good luck with getting those bolts.

Thanks,
Alex

Alex, thank you very much for your advice. Today I found there is a shop near where I live charges around 85 bucks an hour labor, and they said it takes in an hour to complete the job. It's too much for me to do at home and I will have to let them to take care of it.
Thanks again for your help!
