Default VR6 Motor mount question.

so my motor mount is out on my VR so i can litterally just push down on the motor with my hands and move it up and down like 4 inches. there is so much play so everytime i give it gas and or shift the block is hitting my axle making a god aweful sound so just wanted to see. I know what mount it is but when i did my swap i dont remember if i need to remove the motor in order to swap the mount. its the one on the left underneath the power steering pump...



^^^ this side.


your help would be greatly appreciated because its getting worse and worse.

Its a 1 hour job maybe to swap it out. Most of the hardwork is removing all the stuff on top of the mount.
