Usually the best way is to use a jack with a piece of wood under the oil pan. You should be able to jack up the motor far enough to remove the mounts. Or a engine hoist (cherry picker) can be used.

I have a 1999 Buick Park Avenue Ultra, the super charger belt needs to be changed along with the seized pulley located behind the motor mount. The mount is located above the crank shaft, attached to the...

I do have a question for you, if you remove the motor mount, can you change the pulley? If this is possible, you will need some jack stands, pieces of 2 by 4's and a hydraulic bottle jack. loosen the motor mount nuts and bolts( don't remove yet), with the bottle jack and a board, lift up the side of the engine(just enough to take pressure off the mount. now remove the mount. lift just a touch more, and set up the jack stands with boards on them(to support, and not damage the engine. also safety first). now lower the engine to the boards replace the pulley, and now go up with the engine, and replace the mount. I've done this on Toyota's,and think this may work for you also. hope this helps

How do I replace the motor mounts on my 96 thunderbird 3.8L?

Put the car on ramps and set e brake.

Use engine hoist to lift engine weight off of car.

Remove mount to engine bolts, remove mount nut.

Lift engine just enough to remove mounts and install new.

Watch exhaust, fuel lines and transmission mount while lifting. They may have to be loosened or moved.

If you have a motor mount going bad, are you suppose to be able to hear a noise of some kind?

Not usually. when a mount is bad, you can FELL the car **** when accell of a stop or changing from Drive to reverse. To check it, put on your parking brake, now hold the brake pedal with your left foot, now put the car in reverse, and press the gas slightly, the engine will move slightly, now put it in drive, the engine should shift slightly, if it moves a LOT like a few inches or moves upward, you may have a mount bad and it needs to be inspected.
