Default 97 Camry rear engine mount

I was wondering if anybody has changed the rear engine mount on a
97-02 camry? I have seen several posts where it has been done on the
93-96 camry. I am curious as to how to get the mount out and how to
remove the top nut retaining the mount. I assume that you use an
extension bar with a universal joint, but it looks like the fuel rail
will need to be removed to get to the nut. Once that is complete, do
you have to raise the engine up to get the bracket over the stud? Any
help is appreciated.

According to the Haynes Manual there is only one step for removing the
rear engine mount of a 97-02 Camry 4.

"To remove the the rear engine mount, pull the rubber plugs from the
chassis to access the three nuts."

Sorry, not much help there.

I wonder if they have the engine removed from the vehicle at this
point. I will try to get to the top mounting nut with a universal
joint (or a pair - one above and one below to make an S link).
Unfortunately, they used a stud instead of a bolt, which means I will
have to raise the engine at least an inch to clear the stud. I also
noticed that the mounting bracket contains the bearing for the inner
universal joint. Not an easy task, so maybe this is best left to the
service shop. If heard it costs about $200 for labor. I am just
curious if anybody else was successful at replacing this mount? I am
also curious if Chiltons has any better instructions or what the
factory service manual has.
