Forcing The Engine Down To Get Work Clearance

I need to remove the crank center bolt on my 1995 1.3 L automatic. I loosened the two upper bolts on the passenger side motor mount but the engine doesn't drop without hammering on the lower part of the motor mount. Can I take the bolts all of the way out and will the motor drop or have to be forced? Anything that can be damaged, or needs to be disconnected?

Thanks.

You need to put a jack under the engine to counteract gravity, shouldn't need to force anything.
