Default How to replace DS transmission mount?

Hi all. I recently tried replacing all four motor/tranny mounts on my '88 LeSabre. I sucessfully changed both the motor mounts and the passenger side trans mount. I assure you that the front passenger motor mount is a breeze with the AC compressor off

Anyway, when I went to change the drivers side trans mount, I could not see a way to get it out past the steering rack. Also, I could not see how to unbolt it as it appears to be bolted to a metal housing that is bolted at an angle to the transmission housing.

The mount is totally shot... the rubber has completely separated from the metal plate so I'd really like to get it replaced, so any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. If I have to, I might take it to a shop but I'd rather not
