Question X351 Engine Mount

I'm searching this site and can't find any information on replacing the driver side engine mount, and I know it's a regular problem being fluid filled.
Can anyone give me any insight as to how difficult the job is or point me in the direction of a tutorial?
Thanks for you help guys.

You'll most likely need to disconnect the steering linkage and move the steering rack out of the way to access the driver side mount. You'll also need a way to jack up or lift the engine enough to pull out the mount, which means you'll have to unbolt (but not remove) the passenger side mount as well.

When I replaced the mounts on my 4.2 X350, I carefully jacked the engine up by the oil pan. I don't know if that's possible with the X351. Although now that I'm thinking about it, you may not need to actually lift the engine at all. It may be possible to just use a brace to suspend the engine while you wiggle the mount/bracket out.

Edit: I just looked at the manual and it mentions something about possibly having to disconnect some AC lines. The manual's directions are not particularly clear.
