Get under the car, support tranny with a floor jack, remove the 4 bolts for the crossmember, remove the two nuts for the tranny mount that pass thru the crossmember. Once the crossmember is out, remove the nuts from the top of the tranny mount.

This takes all of 5-10 minutes.

Installation is as simple, make sure you secure the tranny mount to the crossmember first, install crossmember, lower tranny onto mount, attach top bolt.

It's imperative not to load the bushing before torquing it to 16ft lbs. 16ft lbs is not much more than hand tight. If you don't follow these simple guidelines, you have a good opportunity to introduce vibration.
