Have you tried this in the SX-4 yet? There appears to be a lot more room too compared to Aerio.

What do you do to get the stud past?? Jack the engine up a bunch or what?? I' wan to try this sometime.

Hi..You can remove your noisy engine by the following way..Bolt a heavy chain to both sides of the motor and bring the engine hoist around. Pull the motor out of the car slowly, making sure the front of the motor is higher than the back. Make sure not to hit the car as you bring the engine away from the car.

yup, once the front mount is all off, jack the engine until the ground wire on the throttle gets tight. unclip the wire, go one more pump.
that should give enough room.
it works on sx4 too. i think you're right about sx4 having a little more room..

The other way, albeit redneck, to remove the engine...put car on jackstands, unbolt engine/transaxel from car with ATV jack w/straps around engine under it, lift front of car with chaintackel and lower jack. Then take engine to where ever you want to work on it with the jack, for head work leave it strapped to the jack; for engine overhaul just strap the transaxel and take the engine off to work on it. We used some sturdy tubular scaffolding with a two 6X6's across to hang the chaintackel and support car.

before you remove the engine pull the valve cover and take a look at it and the chain guide. these engines have a little noise stock, so don't make harsh moves without really knowing.
