Hello and welcome to


There's really no special tool. What you can do is remove the engine mount and use an extension and ratchet or you can use a shallow socket and a fine tooth ratchet. The bolts are usually very tight do to corrosion.

how do i remove thr eng. mount?

Expert:  Richard replied 8 years ago.
There are two ways to do it. You can either remove the 15mm nuts on the top and bottom of the mount then jack up the engine to remove the mount or you can remove the lower nut then the 13mm bolts holding the bracket to the engine block. I usually will remove the bracket and mount as an assembly.

ok, removal of the engine mount is tougher or harder than theh job.

We already removed the stator assembly, removing the 8mm bolts unacoupled the rotor and removed the upper bolt and hole starter assy. Thanks for you comments.

I'll not charge for this.

So you already removed the starter? What was your question?

No, that was the question. I done it this way while I wait for an answer. First David ( one of tyou Tech's ) was trying to solve it but he couldnt, so I keep trying to remove it.

Untill I make it this way. But dont worry be happy thanks for your help.
