Drivers Side Motor Mount Trouble

Hi all, this forum has been a great help but I'm having a problem that the search didn't turn up anything on.

The car is a 01 SE SPI engine.

I was in the process of removing the driver's side motor mount when after taking out the 21mm bolt in the middle the engine sank down (I have it supported under the oil pan). 2 of the 16mm bolts on the mount are stripped so I was going to actually replace it another time.

But the problem is I can't get the 21mm bolt back threaded onto the screw. It sank and I can't get just the screw to raise up. Raising at the oil pan moves the whole engine up including the top of the mount. I need to just get the screw to raise up. Any idea what I can do?

Thanks

Hey buddy. Get another jack with a block of wood on top and jack up under the tranny. Then you should be able to move the tranny wherever you need to in order to locate the bolt/nut in the mount. If you loosen the 4 bolts that hold the mount to the car, you can then move it around a bit to get it. Hope that helps. Later.

Thank you for the reply. I was able to get it back in there.

Now to figure out how to remove the stripped 16mm bolts on the motor mount. I've heard of the bolt-out set that Sears sells, is that worth it?
