Hey guys, new to this forum and came across it via google. This how-to is fantastic, especially compared to the Haynes one I do have a few questions, however.

Why does the motor mount have to be removed? I've seen a few people across these boards and the net that claim to have not needed to drop the engine, is this true?

And secondly, What sort of skill level is needed to this? I've wrenched my own car on little things (belts, alternator, oil filter etc) but I've never dealt with motor mounts. I feel like it sounds more intimidating than it actually is. Anyone wanna shed some light on what sort of skill level is needed to perform this job?

Sorry for double post
