Hi folks.

Started stripping my car today to replace the timing chain gasket.

I've hit a slight stumbling block.
There are 3 inverted torx bolts that hold the engine mount onto the engine.

Got 1st one out no probs, other 2 are in recessed holes and im having difficulty getting into them (Tried a universal knuckle etc)

Any of you guys shed some light.
I'm a mechanic so got access to most tools (Well what i remembered to lift out my toolbox on Friday night)

Cheers

right is this the one just to the left of the engine? if so, my dad and I undid the other bolts on the mount that connects to the actual body of the car. then we jacked up the engine, or lowered it at an angle to get into the other bolts, this job is a right pain in the arse to do.

Yeah its at the left if your standing looking down at the engine.

Originally i took the 15mm nut & 15mm bolt out as it looked like the mount just split there then i could jack the engine up.

Then after that i took the 4x E10/E12 bolts out but still no joy, i take it i will need a large lever to pull it out the chassis ?

yeah i think we are on the same track here, my bros car, which we did it on, didnt need leverage, but i think a spot of gentle encouragement wouldnt go amiss!
