Hi someone please help im really struggling with changing the top mount on my escort van 2000.
Ive taken all the nuts off but when i jack the engine up the car goes with it. Is there something im missing?

The mount should have 2 nuts on the top. These come up through the body mounting plate. I think you need to drop that side of the engine for the mount to come out of the 2 holes. I also believe there are 3 bolts holding the mount to the block. So undo the 2 nuts and the 3 bolts and support the engine and the mount should come off.
Hope this helps

If you look at it from the front. There should be 1 mount on the left hand side/drivers side and a stabiliser bar. Then on the right/passenger side there are 2 mounts on the gearbox, one at the front and one at the rear
