Jeep Patriot rear engine mount

Hey ADVRider crew,

Has anyone changed out a rear/trans engine mount on a Jeep Patriot? Just wondering if there is anything I should look out for - i've never changed an engine mount on a vehicle before. Assuming I need to jack up the engine, it should be a pretty simple affair correct? Just unbolt and swap?

I've done many engine mounts, never one on a grocery getter like the patriot. But assuming it is typical front engine,rear drive. unbolt the old mount, then, A block of wood and a floor jack to lift the trans etc off the old mount. slide in the new, lower the trans/transfercase (if it has one) onto the new mount, retighten. There may be a few tricks to make it easier on that particular vehicle but usually pretty straight forward. Watch out for pulling wires and hoses when you are lifting it off the old mount.
