Question type: Maintenance & Repair

when the guy working with me finally got it
out he had no idea how it came out. S  
I'm guessing you can't get there from here
you have to go somewhere else and start.
thank you in advance.

you have to take and jack the engine up pretty high to get it in and you have to kinda twist it in ...also you have to the lower bolt in it as well ...you wont be able to put it in after the fact
