Hi Canada,

This would be for my 2004 Escape, rear trans mount.

Thanks for the post; I have one question:

How is the main insulator bolt attached? Does it thread into the trans, or nut and bolt through?

And, the second question to my one question:

Can this be done all from the top of the compartment?

Thanks :)
