Skunked by the engine mount

I tried to replace the passenger side mount yesterday on my 91 spider. Got all the nuts and bolts off the mount, but got stuck on trying to loosen that intake bracket that is supported by the mount! :mad: It was around 9pm and I decided to punt...whats dumber than a "dummy" (don't answer that :) ).

The problem was that I had two bolts that I could see holding the intake bracket (not the 6 that was mentioned in this thread - great thread, btw) , but I couldn't get the wrench on there because the A/C hose was in the way. Also, I tried to move the radiator bottle out of the way, but had no slack in the hoses to put it out of the way.

Anyone try it on a '91+ and succeed without taking stuff off?

Vin, there's no way for me to take a picture of it, but its the bolts are where that intake bracket attaches near or on the intake manifold.

I finally broke down and took it to Santos here in LA and he says that they take the manifold off when they do it. Does your '91 have A/C?
