Has anyone actually done the job of replacing the front engine mount? What is involved? Is there some trick to getting it out because it looks darn near impossible without dropping the whole sub frame. I've already done the job of replacing the radiator so I know how to take the front facia off and remove the cross bar. I just don't understand how to creative enough clearance to actually get the mount out.

The best way of doing it is loose the front bumper cover remove the front cradle bolt that would let the engine to come down.

I had a 2001 DTS and their was a TSB for a shield that protected the front mount from the heat of the pipe.
