Left motor mount replacement on 2002 Ford Taurus

Does the axle shaft have to come out so the the mounting channel of the mount can slide back off of the frame?Not enough clearance after I raise the engine to rmove the mount.Other option appears to be remove the bracket on the block so I can lift the mount upward off the frame.Thanks.
