I've asked questions about this job before but now I'm really going to do it Before I get my hands dirty, how do I get to the small hex head bolts holding the mounts to the chassis? The outboard ones are visible and accessible. The inboard ones I can't see, but it feels like the heat shield is in the way. Will I be able to move the heat shield out of the way and have better access when the main bolt is removed and the engine is lifted a little?

I'm sure I'll have more questions when I get to the driver side mount.

Thanks,
Sixto

I use special sockets made by Hazet for this job. DON'T STRIP OUT THE TOP OF THE BOLT! I have seen this done and it sucks.
