    changing motor mount

    i have a busted driverside motor mount on my 94 bravada. i can barely see the mount let alone get tools in there to change it. i studied it for about half an hour and it looks like i'm going to have to pull the exhaust manifold to access the mount bolts. is this the only way? all the awd crap is in the way on bottom side to access anything. anyone ever had to change one of these?

    i put a chain on my 93 4wd. its my beater so im not gonna waste my time doin the mount. its been on there for 4 years now, plus when i got the truck it had a chain on there already. i only put a shorter one on there. works for me. i also have a chain on my syclone. i didnt want the mount to flex to the max and rip it apart.

    Can't you see the mount through the inner fender skirt? Three small bolts hold it to the block and one to the frame. Take out the inner fender for access maybe?

    Yeah, no to all of it. theres somthing else in the way so the inner fender isnt the problem iirc.

    i may be thinkin of something else but i think 2 bolts hold it to the frame... u might be talking about the main bolt that holds the mounts together...
