ok i challenge anyone to try to follow that procedure with those special tools... right. what a waste of time.

all you need to do is get the front in the air on a couple of stands, jack the engine on the oilpan for support with a nice big board to prevent cracking, and then just get in an remove the bolts for either mount. puck and i swapped my front mount with the es insert in 10 minutes and we weren't even concentrating...
