300 Tdi Motor mount replacement?

Any tips or tricks to replacing the motor mounts on a Defender 300 Tdi?

Can I just unbolt the motor mounts themselves and lift the engine a bit and slip them in and out?

Or should I unbolt the metal mounts where they bolt to the block then slip everything out?

Will I need to unbolt or loosen the tcase mount?

I'll remove the fan before doing anything though.

Thanks

From what I remember you can just about manage to get the old mounts out/new ones in if you undo the nuts on the chassis side and lift the front of the engine as high as it will allow.
If that doesn't work then they need to come off the block, which is a Ballache of a job, remembering each one has a stiffening bracket that goes back to the engine backplate and is secured through it by 2 bolts either side.

It ended up being easiest just to unbolt the motor mounts lift the engine a bit and unbolt the steel mounting plates from the block. 6 bolts each and not too terrible to get too.
