SOURCE: Does a left-rear shock absorber
The hole that you refer to would have held the upper strut mount. This piece is part of the strut assembly which includes the coil spring. If you attempt the replacement of this mount yourself, it will require the use of a coil spring compressor (clamshell type which you can rent from certain auto parts stores or tool rental centers). You will have to remove the complete strut assembly from the car. In your case, what's left is the lower retaining bolt. You'll have to use great caution when compressing the spring in order to remove the nut that holds the upper mount in place. The spring is under a great deal of preloaded pressure, that if released can cause bodily damage. Once you remove the upper nut, you can replace the mount, or mounting plate itself. If you don't want to tackle this job yourself. I can tell you that the typical shop will charge you around 2 hrs labor to replace this part. (hourly rates vary) The cost of parts is extra naturally. Most shops I've worked for won't install parts other than those purchased through the shop. You may get lucky though. Buying your own parts is always cheaper, because you don't have to pay for the mark up. I hope this helps.

We figured this one out today, after pounding, twisting, sliding, gerunding, etc.
It will not slide backward (as a safety mechanism, of course) unless your latches (the ones that connect / clamp onto the car) are completely loose. That means, that looking at the rack from the end, you'll see this oblong deal that you'll use to tighten the rack to a car. As you turn it clockwise the rack will tighten, right?
Ok. Just make sure that that guy is as loose as he gets, and your piece will slide back just fine.

you dont have to take it off. remove the 2 15mm bolts and pry the bracket sideways w/ a prybar. This shortens your time. You most likely have a 90amp alternator so it should be small enough to slide through.
