Lower motor mount/torque strut/"rod, engine moving" replacement...what am I in for?

I have a '07 5 speed hatchback with a bad lower motor mount (part pictured). The part came in today, and I want to know what I'm in for. I can't seem to find any guides online or info in the service manual.

Is changing this part a simple case of undoing two bolts and tightening two bolts, or is it something where I need to jack up the motor, undo the other mounts, etc etc...any advice/tips would be appreciated here.

Usually you'll need a floor jack to rock the engine slightly to line up the bolt holes. Looks like it goes into the cross member, it should slide right out. I'd say a half hour job, more then an hour, your goofing off.

The vertical bolt can only be accessed from above the subframe, can't recall if there's enough clearance to remove it without significant disassembly...

Calls for 0.8 hour book time in AllData, so it can't be too bad. It didn't show any procedures though.

Awesome, thanks for the info all! It looks like there's enough room above the subframe to get it out without too much difficulty, so I'm giving it a go tomorrow afternoon
