    Where are these mounts located? One looks like is on the top of the engine on the passenger side, the other looks like it is underneath near the middle drivers side. Are they what I'm looking at?

Get a piece of wood just big enough to put on the oil pan and put just a little pressure with a floor jack to lift up the motor and take pressure off the mounts. Next loosen the bolts, but dont pull them out just yet, and adjust the floor jack to the point the bolts come out with a little or no effort.

How do i replace rear motor mount on toyota echo?

It is not that Hard, you can use the Jack from your Car... Lift up a little on the Oil Pan with the Jack, you will see the engine Mount move. Once you have that pressure on, then you just take the center bolt and then the mount bolts. Install the new Mount and lower the jack.

Hello. Generally you can put in a different motor from the original but it requires more work, more knowledge and more effort. Shop around at other garages.
