Atif, You have it exactly correct. Just undo the bolts that go through the center of each of the two bushings (rubber inserts). You can then remove the "dogbone" bracket that is between the frame and the engine that contains one of the bushings. The other busing remains on the engine, but there is enough clearance to position the tool and remove the bushing with it's bracket in place on the engine. As you said in your original posting, this is a lot easier than replacing the lower mounts. Unfortunately, the lower mounts are more likely to be broken. My original e-mail to you was returned because your return e-mail address is invalid. Walt ----- Original Message ----- From: "Atif I.
