I thought removing the filter housing would make it easier to get the hoses out, but I was wrong. The first day I worked on the car, we got the lower hose out easy but the upper one was being stubborn. I then decided to raise the engine, but stripped the bolt on the driver side that bolts through the motor mount and into the aluminum arm that connects to the block. Fortunately, my father figured out how to snake the upper hose in. He pushed the hose from the top and I gently pulled the hose from the bottom. It was smooth sailing from there. I'm glad I replaced my mounts earlier this year, I should not have to worry about that stripped bolt until I have to replace the mounts again, probably in another 8 to 10 years.
