You must unbolt the engine mounts and have someone help you lean the engine forward.

unbolt the top mounts and push the car backwards, this will roll the motor forward slightly..be sure someone is inside to set the brake before you stick your arm back there..good luck!

I can't see how the engine can roll up enough, without destroying the wipper arms

it will be alright...its set far enough down in there it wont hurt it. its going to pivot over the lower rear mount so it will go forward and down, not up.
