Default Front motor mount studs

I was able to get 2 of the studs out by double nutting and turning them out on the top front end mount , but the 3rd i can not get out.. I need to get the stud out to lift the engine... Does any one know the size of torx socket the end of the stud is? Thanks

This was a supposed 20 minute job that took my dad and I over 2 hours to complete. That stupid bolt would go NOWHERE. We finally gave up, went inside, had somethin to eat and drink, then came back out and gave it another go and POP, finally detached itself. Try some bolt-out or other loosener to get it out of there. Good luck!

Does the OP mean the torque axis mount? Or the front transmission mount?

For the Torque Axis you just take out the center bolt and hoist her out.

It is a 1995 bonneville. It is the top engine mount with 3 bolts . THe problem stud is the one going into the block below the rear cylinder head. I cannot remove the upper mount without taking out the stud for clearance. I tryied prying it off and jacking the engine, but it got caught that way. Any ideas ???? I tried taking out the big axis bolt and hoisting it out but it seemed to catch on a shoulder on the mount bolted to the engine???

You're going to have to get a lot more specific. You're not making any sense.

You're trying to pull the engine, but the "top front motor mount" ins't loosening... Where is this mount? What is this mount really called? What side of the car is it on?
