Dog bone engine mount replacement

I was surprised to not find a thread about replacing engine mounts? My upper mount (dog bone) needs replacing. Shops quote $100 for part/ $200 for labor. The part is $25 bucks on amazon. Seems low but... Has anyone replaced the dog bone engine mount? Multiple reviews for the part online say it was easy to install. Well I've heard that before but I know its the easiest of them all. Can anyone point me to a thread that has the instructions on replacement or helpful tips before I get into something I shouldn't? I'm assuming once the old one is off I shouldn't move the vehicle until I get the new one mounted so I'm concerned about screwing this up or not having some special tool I won't discover until I'm well into the project. Any help is appreciated. (Again I searched using multiple phrases and couldn't find a thread addressing this common repair)

Haven't done it yet myself, but I understand it's one of the easiest to replace. Isn't it just two bolts? If not, the Murano FSMs can be found by 'parent directorying' the Altima FSM link in my sig. The procedure will be there in engine mechanical section (EM).

Thank you. As you state only two bolts. Found the FSM for my make/model and now have the torque specs which I always try to get right. There is an order to which bolts go in first and tighten. No special tools which is always good! Thanks for your reply.
