    This is not your standard bolt through set up. from what I can see it is a 3 pc motor mount, a 2 pc bracket and a 3 bolt bumper.

First put a safely rigged jack under the engine to support the weight, and raise it slightly. Loosen the engine bolts and continue to remove them. You only need to raise it slightly so don't go ballistic on the jack. Once the engine clears the mount you need to change, remove the bolts that hold the mount to the frame and replace the mount. Repeat the steps in reverse to finish.

Iam no mech but is it hard 2 change the motor n transmission mounts in a 96 ford thunderbird 3.8 engine if it is whats the going price 2 do so i dont get taken

It is fairly easy to do if you have a lift, but it is possible to do on the ground with a jack and jack stands. You will need to be able to unbolt both sides of the mount and support the engine with the jack while you replace the mounts. If you download the autozone app to a smart pone or tablet it will give you a repair estimate calculator,

Want to remove the motor from my 1997 ford thunderbird and replace same. Can I remove motor and tranny at same time? I have been told I have to remove motor and tranny seperately...

I have had my engine out (1991 Cougar 5.0), and I did it separately. I do not think both could be removed at the same time with a conventional engine hoist. It is a pain separating them. Be sure to replace the rear main seal!!

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.

I need to replace the driverside power window motor on 1986 Ford

if i remember correctly it comes as a assembly with the regulator fabricated on to it. just a thought you can usually find a salvage yard to get assmbly for around 25. to 35. bucks cash and carry.
also alot of these yards have their own glassmen that can install for u at additional cost. if you would like.

hope 2 help shack
