    There are four mounts holding the motor and transmission in. Front, rear, left & right. There is really on 1 motor mount, that's is the passenger side of the car beside the shock tower (timing belt side of the motor). The other 3 mounts are really transmission mounts. There's the upper mount (top of the transmission by the shock tower, under the stock air box), and then the front & rear.

    The poly inserts you bought are front & rear inserts. If you look under there car, you'll see a crossmember that runs from underneath the radiator back to the firewall. This is where the front & rear motor mounts are at. You can safely remove this crossmember (and the other crossmember) AFTER supporting the motor & transmission. It should be supported by the other 2 mounts, however better safe than sorry.

    What kind of poly mounts did you get? That kinda depends on how you install them. If they're just inserts, pull the mounts out, stick the inserts in, reinstall the mount. If they're the fully poly replacement, you'll need to remove all the rubber from inside the mount as well as the metal ring inside before installing the mount.

    Thank you I feel really dum right now : ( I bought the inserts for the so called tranning mounts. And what I did was took out the actual engine mount. -_- witch now I think I have to buy a new one. Because I took off the motor mount were the timing belt is and ripped off mount -_-. So this what I will do I will buy new engine mount and take off the one that I put in there and check it if still looks good then just put the other ones were they belong. Thanks a lot for the info Now I no and will never forget.
