Default 2.2 Cavalier upper motor mount issues

Hey, all! How hard would it be to replace the upper motor mount on a 2.2L Cavalier? I have a feeling that mine'* going bad, and, was wondering how much trouble it would be to replace for someone like me, who'* never done anything like that kind of repair before. I don't think I need to replace the whole mount, though. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

it only comes as a whole mount. loosen the vertical nuts from the side of the engine compartment. put a jack with a block of wood on top under the edge of the oil pan then slowly jack it up til the engine is supported and you can take the vertical nusts off then jack it til the mount is clear of the bolts slide it off and slide new one on. then lower and tighten

Well, I looked at the mount, and, I believe that I'd have to remove the 2 bolts on the engine, and, the other 2 on the body, then, it just should come right off, am I correct?
