I was gonna jack the motor up with a trolley jack as I don't have an engine lift either.
Did you have to remove the anti roll bar completely or just slacken off the mounts and tie it out the way?
I have dynamic drive but was just planning on taking the mounts off and tying the roll bar out the way.
Keep up the good work. I shall be watching this post with interest!!
btw how is your leak? is it bad or just dribbles slowly?
congratulations on vcg job....
i have a dynamic drive too but i just removed it with anti roll bar and tied it with zip ties and same thing with power steering pump......its not complicated just takes a little time for the first time as you try to figure out the best and easiest way to do it with out engine hoist and special tools.....actually i had a guy give me a hand since i was under the car and he was under the fender driver side turning the ratchet and i was holding the extension with e torx socket....those 4 motor mount torx bolts are the worst because if the socket slips then you have problems....i think its better if you have someone help you when removing those 4 bolts....i will try to post more pics and videos later on...good luck with your project coming up in few weeks...i am also interested and will watch your progress...good day
