17mm hex heads? This is what the bolt heads look like for my car. I have a 2005. The 2 bolts with the washers and countersunk holes were the bottom most bolts.There are six bolts that hold the transmission to the engine. The upper four bolts have 17mm hex heads and the two bottom ones have 14mm heads.
The trickiest one is high up on the back side of the engine under the exhaust manifold section of the head.
FadedBlue, you have my phone number. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions while working on your Insight.
Well if I order the 2 top motor mounts, the driver side looks easy enough, but the passenger side mount has something in front of it (maybe related to ABS brakes as it has some hard lines coming out of it). Can I just unbolt the thing in front of the passenger side mount and lift it out of the way so I can get the bolt out of the motor mount?Congrats on getting it out.
Yea that motor mount is getting tired.
Remove the two bolts/springs that hold the cat to the exhaust manifold, you should be able to pull down on the exhaust pipe while removing the bolt at the same time, without having to remove the pipe from the rubber hanger. Or you can remove the pipe from the hanger.I was wondering if I needed to disconnect the exhaust to get the long bolt out.
I ran out to the Honda dealer during my lunch break. They had Honda manual transmission fluid, but did not have the "super high temp urea grease". I guess auto parts stores will sell an equivalent grease? Are there any suggestions on what I should use?Next I think I need to get some "super high temp urea grease" and some Honda manual transmssion fluid.
