Default Motor mount, Transmission mount Frustrations...

The mount at the front of the engine, with the large dampner and the built in strut, its seperating. The rubber dampner is removing itself from the transmission side of the mount, If I rock the car back and fourth it opens up a good 1/4 inch atleast.
My Tourque axis mount is brand new, was replaced because it was popping from time to time, i changed it last week, its popping again, could these two be related?
This trans mount..looks easy to change?

Fairly...

undo the 3 bolts below the subframe for it, jack it up a little and undo the three on the trans. Hardest part is finding the right movement to pull it out the top.

You don't have to but loosening the front subframe bolts gives you a little more room.

You could also make yourself a solid mount.

wiith the way you plan on adding more power..soon your front mount won't be capable of holding long.

If you don't get the mount done, bring it here. It'll take less than an hour. We did John'* a couple years ago.
