Default L36 removal nightmare

Trying to remove engine (L36 97 SLE) form the transaxle, seriously stuck. I have seen more than one refernce to a engine to transaxle mount on the passenger side of the car. I don't see this on the 1997'* - is this applicable - all other steps to remove engine have been followed. The only other mount/bracket I see is the lower dog bone (transaxle to frame).

Any advice would be appreciated.

P.*. Engine is not seized, can be truned at crank.

you did remember the hidden bolt, accessible from the pass wheel well and a long socket extension

you really should have an FSM handy when doing that kind of think you know. never run into problems that way. they're priceless, never forget it. but yes, it sounds like the hidden bolt. see boosty'* thread on more pics and info.

First pic..look right of the strut and between the wheel well bottom edge and the rotor.



And here it is..up close and very personal.
