Well you will need to jack the front of the car up securely. Then support the motor from underneath. (a cherry picker is your best friend for this). Then remove the passenger side motor mount to access the timing cover. then you should have all the access you want!

Yep, you have to remove the mount and the mount bracket.

And you generally have to take the mount bracket out at the same time as the timing cover, its kinda tricky. Youll see when you get down there.

thats what happens with backyard mechanics, you invent new ways to save money to only have to spend that money down the line on something you should of done the first time.
