    Hi all.

    Have removed bolts and electrics from the motor, but I'm having no luck 'sliding' or forcing it off it's housing attachments.

    Any advice, or is it simply brute force?

    Machine is a Bosch

    Thanks

    Never done it but it looks as if there are anti vibration mounts at the top?
    Probably involving a metal or plastic core covered in rubber. Then the motor slides on?
    Possibly brute force but using a wooden wedge or something to get it started?

    Cheers. Yeah I think it might be to do with the plastic things (highlighted), that I'm not sure if these are removable and how
