Can't remove front engine mount

Recommended Posts

ALCON,

I can't remove the front engine mount.  When I attach the wrench and turn the bolt, it spins but does not retract.  Any suggestions on how to remove it?

The through bolt should have a nut on the end that has to be held.  You also need to jack up the engine a little to take the weight off the mount.  Use a block of wood for protection.  And you didn't give the year or engine type?

Is the circular part spinning?  If so sounds like the weld has broken from the bracket?  If not, either the bolt is stripped or the circular part.

Since it's been a couple years since I did the front mount on mine I can't remember exactly what it looks like.  Maybe weld a nut on the circular part?

Aleekat, we clamped the nut and removed the bolt.
