Default Right motor bracket

I have a 2004 Deville and smashed the front end up. Most damage is left fender-bumper,the rubber-radiator/air conditioner condenser- hood-plastic grille crap & headlights and right fender a little which could be tweeked back in shape. The right motor mount bracket broke at the point it mounts to the mount. The upper bolt on the timing end of engine is right at the frame. Maybe 1' to 1 1/4' clearence to frame. And on the side of engine to fire wall about the same maybe a little more to transaxle.
Looks like the engine & transaxle and all related parts are put together then raised on the sub-frame to the motor mounts.
Any suggestion on replacing the right motor bracket or where to get a in-depth manuel?

Raise and support the vehicle
Remove the right front wheel
Support the engine assembly with a suitable jack.
Remove the nut securing the engine mount to the engine mount bracket.
Lower the jack allowing the engine to lower slightly.

Remove the surge tank retaining bolts and position away
Remove the frame rail bolts retaining screws.

Push up on the frame rail bolts in order to clear the mount as the top of the mount is tilted away from the vehicle.

Reverse the procedure to install new mount.

Dan I have it on jack stands and wheels off. The broken piece is still on the motor mount from the bracket. I wonder if it can be welded back on? If not I will have to replace the bracket. Seem like the mount is ok. Discarded the broken stuff and I have a Front clip minus a left fender for parts. Same color-white -so I felt fortunate to come a crossed it.

It shouldn't be welded on. There should be bolts and perhaps a stud or two. They may be hard to see with the engine in the car.
