Afternoon, looking at changing the front engine mounts, what's the best way to remove then , can I use a trolley jack under the sump, or do I use a engine hoist ,
thanks

Not sump! Slings and hoist

I’d remove the boot liner and check the vent pipes first. Then take the filler pipe off the tank and check for corrosion.
