How to remove and replace rear mount

Hi All

I am going to Fill my motor mounts. I know how to access the torque mount, but I do not know how to get to the rear mount. I need some help. If anyone could post a picture, tips and suggestions, or even the link to a DIY I really appreciate it. I've tried searching, but I can never figure out how to get what I'm looking for

Thanks in advance!

It can be done from below. You will need to disconnect the front torque mount and possibly the exhaust from the cat. The driver's side engine mount and tranny mount will "twist" enough that you can jack the back of the engine up allowing extra room to work. It's three bolts down into the subframe and one across through the rear engine mount arm.

You will still undo the bolts from the top, extensions and creative thinking will get you to them. You can remove the mountitself from the bottom after removing all the bolts and jacking up the rear of the block. If you're automatic don't forget to unplug the vacuum tube going to the rear mount.

If you have an EX 5spd, good luck, I had the most difficult time trying to get my mount fixed. I ended up kinking the heater core outlet and inlets and lets just say that one motor mount replacement turned into me having to remove the entire dash, just to get the heater core fixed.

There literally isn't a way to get that big bulky mount out short of taking off the intake mani. which may seem like a headache, but its definitely a lot easier to remove 9 bolts than it is to take the entire dash out.

But the Automatics and the LX/DX 5spds are more forgiving. It is possible to remove those without having to get the IM off. Just like people above said, undo the front torque mount, stick a jack with a block of wood under the engine and jack up on it slightly to give more space to get it out.

Awesome! Yeah I own an automatic. I CAN refil the rear mount with poly, right?

Sure, you can fill anything with poly. If you're looking for more power to the ground quicker you will love the poly filled mounts. If you hate engine vibrations inside the cabin you will hate the poly filled mounts. They will transfer more vibrations to the interior.

Could I use an insert and poly-fill combo?


Like buy a new insert, and then lace some poly around the insert on both sides? My theory is I'll get the resistance of the new insert, and the stability of the poly...

I wouldn't fill them on an ouchomatic.. Redlights are going to shake your fillings out.
