Hello. If you'd like, I can provide you a PDF of the procedure. The cost would be 5.00. Let me know if you'd be interested.

The bolt on the rear of the compressor is hitting the crossmember that holds the lower control arms

Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 1 year ago.

That's the cross member that the bolt is up against?

Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 1 year ago.

It looks like a bracket of some kind. Looking at that picture, I see 2 options. Either pull the bolt out of the motor mount and raise the engine a half inch, or notch the steel to allow the bolt to come out.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Do this motor mounts have any play to them?
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 1 year ago.

i wouldn't try to raise the engine without pulling the bolt out of the mount first. Those motor mounts are pretty rigid rubber. With the motor mount bolt removed though the engine will easily raise up enough to give you access

How did you make out? Did you get it out?
