Toyota Corolla: How to remove & replace rear motor?

Resolved Question:

How do you remove & replace rear motor mount on a Toyota Corolla 1994 4cylinder. I unbolted it, but there isn't enough room to remove it.

Thank you for choosing JustAnswer and allowing me to help you resolve your Toyota questions!

The lower sub frame/engine cradle and cross member that goes from the left control arm to the right control arm has to be removed. There is also a front to rear sub frame assembly that comes out with the lower control arm/engine cradle assembly. Normally what I do is disconnect both ball joints and unbolt all of the supporting bolts that hold these two pieces together and lower them down as assembly.

The lower sub frame/engine cradle appears to be bolted and wielded. How long does it take and can a home DIY handle this? How difficult is it?

Expert:  Skyvisions replied 5 years ago.
The piece that runs from front to rear is only bolted to the main cross member that goes from the left side to the right side. This is a fairly heavy job to do at home on jack stands.

Is it wielded or bolted or both. If, it's wielded how would you remove it?
Expert:  Skyvisions replied 5 years ago.

They are not welded together. they are 2 pieces and bolted only. See below.
