motor mount to frame bolts

any ideas on how to remove the motor mount to frame bolts on a 1981 buick regal,the bottom bolt i can see from underneath the arm but the remaining top 2 remain a mystery on how to hold the bolt head with a # 15 while removing the nut,there is a slot on the mount but the angle is wrong to get a wrench in there to hold the bolt head, ineed to get them off or loose to change the rubber mount between the 2 piece mounts. jada

The problem is that these bolts are installed before the lower control arms are bolted in place. I'm wondering why you need to pull the frame mounts to get the rubber motor mounts out. You should just be able to raise the motor with a hoist or floor jack.

re replacing polyurethane inserts in frame mounts

thanks for the reply,i have the engine out of the car and both engine mounts from block to frame mounts removed,to replace the poly inserts the "clamshell" mounts have to be removed or bolts slackend off enough to push out the old inserts and push in the new ones.can this be done without removing the control arm? the clamshell mounts to the frame are two piece with insert between

I replaced the mounts on my camaro when swpping the v6 to a v8, its not easy but a rachet and 6" and 3" extension and a swivel knuckle and the right size socket going in from the bottom and the wrench on top is how i did it. You have to finagel it around to get the socket where it goes. It was not the easiest job i have done and my wife said that there was a few more words than usaull coming from under the car.

You sort of just have to get in there and do it, i remember going through the opening in the frame where the control arm attaches. Also I bent up an old 12 point wrench to fit in there nice where the ratchet was hard.
