Has anyone removed and replaced the front mount? Service manual says the radiator has to come out but it seems that might be excessive. Anybody access the front mount by just removing the fans and the battery? Many on the Ody page say the manual is overkill and that it can be done without pulling the radiator, but that's obviously a different vehicle.

Any experiences?

I recently swapped my engine and yes you can get away with removing the fans however you will also have to remove the front bumper and grill so you can get to the brackets that hold the radiator, condensor and transmission cooler, and then you can pull the radiator front and out of the way. Its actually pretty quick if you've done it once. I had to go back and change the alternator, open diode, and took me about 20minutes to get the bumper and brackets off.
