Default 02 PT Removing center motor mount "Help"

Im having a hard time understanding how to pull the center engine mount for my pt. Need to get the water pump out and cannot figure out how to remove the mount. Please tell me that somebody has done this.

Yikes. Detach exhaust, jack engine front WAY up.

put the right wheel off, and you'll see a circle plastic cap (it's about 2" diameter), take it off and you will see a T55 bolt, that's the one which is limiting you to lift the engine.
Then you should take the power wheel pump bracket. It has 3 15mm bolts (not sure about the 15 mm could be 13mm)
Then you're ready to lift your engine and remove your timing belt.

Also you'll need to disconnect the exhaust downpipe and the transmission mount also, so you can drop that side of the engine.

I change the timing belt, all three mounts, waterpump, all without disconnecting the downpipe, a/c parts or touching the transmission mount. It was on a 03 GT PT.

Good for you !!! but you dodn't want to put that much stress on the exhaust and the tranny mount, when you jack up and move the engine sideways for clearance. Anyways, you only need to remove the airbox and two 15mm bolts for the tranny mount, and four 13mm bolts for the downpipe
BTW, already did an 01 N/A and an 05 Turbo.... and a Neon, an Elantra, an Izuzu Amigo

you only need to remove the 15 mm bolt that holds the exhaust manifold to the engine block. That allows you to lift the engine.
