    I am replacing the timing belt, idler pulleys and water pump in my 96
    Sebring coupe with the 2.0 DOHC engine. Has anyone had firsthand
    experience doing this job? There does not seem to be any way to remove
    the engine motor mount which attaches to the block with 3 bolts
    because there isn't enough room between the timing cover and and
    fenderwell. I got those 3 bolts completely loosened but can't get them
    out !

    Is there a trick to doing this?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance !

    I had the same problem with the rear motor mounts on my 41 Windsor. They
    could loosen, but not come out. The only solutions was to raise the Fluid
    Drive unit and then thy came out fine.

    Does the mount need to be removed? When I had the belt and water pump
    changed on my 2.4 in a Dodge Stratus, I think they only had to remove
    the splash shield to get to everything. A Sebring may be different
