How to remove transmission mount on Chevrolet Cavalier?

Here is information to help you. This is part of your question.Replacement procedure for transmission mount and transmission both:---



Transmission Mount Replacement

Important: In order to avoid oil pan damage and possible engine failure, insert a block of wood that spans the width of the oil pan bottom between the oil pan and the jack support.

  1. Use a jack or a utility stand to raise the transmission/transaxle in order to remove the weight from the transmission/transaxle mount and create slight tension in the mount.
  2. Inspect the transmission/transaxle mount. Replace the transmission/transaxle mount if the transmission/transaxle mount exhibits any of the following conditions:
    The rubber surface is covered with cracks.
    The rubber is separated from the metal plate of the mount.
    The rubber is split through the center.
  3. If there is movement between the metal plate of the transmission/transaxle mount and the transmission, tighten the transmission mount fasteners to the correct tightening specification.

  1. Raise and support the vehicle. Remove the left front wheel and tire assembly. Remove the left front fender liner.

  2. Install a jackstand and a block of wood to support the transaxle.

  3. Remove the transmission mount bolts.
  4. Remove the mount.

  1. Transfer the mount bracket to the new mount.


  2. Position the mount and start the bolts into the threads.

    Notice: Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.

  3. Tighten the mount bolts.

    Tighten
    Tighten the bolts to 66 N·m (41 lb ft).



  4. Install the mount expansion bolt.

    Tighten
    Tighten the bolt to 55 N·m (41 lb ft).



  5. Remove the jackstand and the wood block.
  6. Install the left fender liner. Install the left tire and wheel assembly. Lower the vehicle.
