Default Upper Motor Mount Replacement Help

Hello people,

Today I attempted to replace my upper motor mount. I got as far as removing it from the engine bay, but I cannot seem to get the center bolt out of the middle where the rubber is. It looks like it may have seized. Is there anything I can try to remove the bolt? Or can/should I just buy a new bolt and bracket? And if so, where? I can't seem to find them online online.

Thanks!

You're talking about the forward bolt, yeah? I would try hosing the thing down with PB Blaster or Seafoam or Kroil or Liquid Wrench and letting it sit for a while, then whack it with a hammer. If you have impact tools, you might be able to clamp the mount in a vice and then go at it with an impact wrench. Penetrant is the key, though, don't be shy!

I will try that, Thanks.
