Hello,
I have bought a Haynes Manual for my car. It says to remove the right engine mounting bracket, and then I'm assuming the engine is free to raise so I can get to the timing belt for replacement. I have supported the engine from below and removed two engine mounts assuming the right has been removed like the manual says. My questions are: Which side is the front of the engine so I know which is the right engine mounting bracket, and how many bracket do I have to remove so I have the ability to raise the engine? Help me please.
Thanks a million.

Johnny

If its 2.0 engine

The front of the engine is where the timing cover is-You have to remove the cruise control assy, remove the engine mount nut and then raise the engine

I have removed those parts and removed the nut on the bracket closest to the timing shroud. The engine doesn't raise that high, maybe and inch or two before the jack starts raising the whole car. Am I doing something wrong? How high will the engine raise?
