Damn, she's makin' ya earn it, huh?
Did you install your RMM originally, or did a shop do it?
Am I reading that you're pulling the alternator as well? I found that wasn't needed, but if you're mostly there it will add some room. I just decided the effort to remove the alt. wasn't worth the payoff.
Remember weight of the engine on the jack, no more
- don't lift, but take the weight.
loosen all the RMM bolts a few turns, removing completely just the front main bolt.
- you want some movement to the mount so it's easy to reinstall, and you want the mount to drop out of the way.
Passenger mount is just removing the top bracket- bolt & two nuts I think it was, the lower the jack just an inch or two, not much at all.
- after lowering, you can grab the valve cover & pull towards the front of the car, just enough to let the DP pull up & out. It takes some finess & cussing to find the right spot, but it will lift right out when the stars align just so....
