Default Center Motor Mount Replacement

I have a 2004 non-turbo PT with around 85,000 miles. The timing belt snapped at 83,000 so that has been done.

I need detailed instructions on how to replace the center motor mount. I've replaced the passenger side motor mounts myself but a mechanic diagnosed that the center mount is bad as well and wants $800 to replace.

I've seen plenty of instructions on how to replace the timing belt but zero detailed instructions on the center mount. My understanding is that the mount doesn't fail often. Thanks!

i know it's an old post, but you have to remove the engine from the car, OR pull off the timing belt, tensioner and inner timng belt cover. then jack the engine into just the right spot, the mount will come out.
