How high should I lift the engine up ?

Livingston Rolle says:

Every time I do this my engine mount bracket is rubbing against the pulley when I tighten screws, any ideas why?

WireD M says:

As with the video for the front engine mount, I appreciate your excellent, brief, and concise video. I was done with this in about 20 minutes. I wish I could show you the condition of the mounts that I replaced.. they were cracked, leaky and not functional. I'm surprised the engine didn't fall out. All fixed up now. Again, thank you!

Gear Jammer says:

Getting ready to do both the side and front engine mounts on my 2007 Acura TL "Type-S". A few questions if that would be alright, and Thanks for your time.
#1- Is the set up and removal procedure the same on a 07 Acura TL "Type-S" as on the 06 Acura TL (non Type-S) in the video ?
#2- You say torc side mount engine bolts to 47 pounds, but you say (in your Acura front mount video, same car) to torc the mounting bolts at 40 pounds. Shouldn't they both be the same?? Thanks

Marco Arce says:

You should add that it’s a pain in the butt to crack those bolts loose.

Johnny Gamboa says:

Is it safe to jack the engine up like this with everything else still connected? I have this same exact mount that is completely trashed so will probably replace soon! Thanks Brian!

Alberto Monzon says:

Do you have to buy all the mounts?
Or can you buy them separately?

Ali Saeed says:

Is it same part for 2004?

Minh says:

so awesome man! could you do videos on the rear engine mount and the transmission mount as well? Thanks so much!

Alfredo Gomez says:

Any video on how to replace the rear engine mount or front left mount on this same vehicle?

Thanks for showing this; I was under impression that this was going to be lot more complicated. I have 1999 Odyssey with similar mount which really should be replaced given its age and condition and with your video I might have the courage to do it myself.
