For a 1997 Lexus ES300, what is the direction to turn the wrench when I want to loosen the bolts for removing the motor mount? The one I'm trying to replace is the one on top that is very accessible and secured by 2 bolts, one to engine and another to frame (torque mount).
My research on other model years:
From a forum thread for the 1998 model, one answer claims its 'lefty loosey', aka counter-clockwise? Similarly the tutorial video of a motor mount replacement for a 2003 model also shows both bolts being turned counter-clockwise.
One of the forum comments also said it should be 'threaded against the direction of rotation', if so perhaps I can infer that '97 is also counter-clockwise rotation to loosen.
