Default Need Help With Motor Mount Replacement

I am changing out the motor mounts and have run into a problem. I am following this amazing write up: https://ls1tech.com/forums/generatio...otsa-pics.html

I have run into a problem though. I am trying to remove the driver's side mount and I can't get the large 18mm bolt out because of a sensor. In the write up above, I do not see the sensor (that I have on my car). My car is a 2000 firebird (trans am if that matters).

This is MY car with the orange sensor in the way.




This is the pic from the write up...no orange sensor.

What is this sensor and how do I get the mount bolt out? Remove the senor? I could cut the 18mm bolt, replace it and put it in backwards???

And yes its grimy in there! Still cleaning up a major power steering issue. I promise I'll clean it up before the headers go on!

Cut the bolt and put it in backwards. That's the best option

This right here is key! I did the same thing and it was much easier to get it all out versus fighting out just the mount alone.

As said already remove the whole pedestal and mount as an assembly.

Isn't that "sensor" the block heater? Should be able to unplug it.

When I did mine this last summer I removed the pedestal with it also. Was actually pretty easy till you put it back together and line it back up! Good luck!

I was able to get mine out with the block heater in place, but I had the transmission and passengers side mount removed already at the time, so I had a lot movement to work with. When reassembling, I put the bolt in backwards.
