Innovative Mounts, install and review

Now first off the easiest mount to install will be the hydraulic filled mount (passenger side) the abs module bracket will have to be unbolted to give u more room to the 14mm bolt under it.Car must be on jack stands for more room to place the jack. Motor must be supported with a piece of wood and a jack under the oil pan. Unbolt the mount bracket using a deep 19mm socket i used an air gun but a breaker bar and extension can be used. Then remove all 3 14mm bolts holding in the mount.

To install repeat the steps above backwards, then lower the motor slowly until ur able to start threading the NEW bracket on the new mount, then start then bolts off the bracket to the motor THEN tighten everything to torque specs which is 43ft lbs.

Now the driver side mount is a little bit more tricky and will require either a ratchething wrench 14mm or a ratchet and small socket. Support the motor again with a piece of wood and jack. Remove the battery and battery tray...MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR RADIO CODE THEN DONT FORGET TO HOLD THE WINDOW ALL THE WAY AUTO UP TO REST THE AUTO FUNCTION.... Unbolt the bolt that goes thru the mount first then unbolt the tranny bracket bolts then the mount itself now some of the bolts are tricky to get to and can be reached by turning the wheel all the way left or taking it off then reaching under the frame....Install in reverse order but install the mount first then the bracket THEN the mount that goes thru the bolt can be reached by jacking up the motor slowly so the hole can be reached....NOW THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT START THREADING THE BOLT IN BY HAND AS MUCH AS U CAN TO MAKE SURE ITS GOING IN SMOOTH IF NOT YOU WILL CROSSTHREAD THE BOLT.
