I had to move the plastic shaft cover to get to the bolts, but it was easy to do. Block of wood over the oil pan works great to lift the engine.

It may be obvious, but do one side at a time.

Isn't red the only color a vehicle should be?
If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

Don't tighten one side down before you get the other side in.

In fact don't tighten anything down until you run the engine including a little power brake action. Not too much, but just a little. This will get the engine settled nice before you torque it down.

The plastic cover on the steering shaft has TORX bolts FYI.
