The hairline surface cracks aren't normal, the original motor mount on my '10 LX 18R doesn't have them. Is that a DEA 4530 motor mount shipped from Amazon? What's the year and model of your car?Thanks for the DIY. It helped me narrow down what was causing the vibration in the Civic. I ordered the part online and received it yesterday. I've attached a picture of it in the post. There are small crack lines (Not actual cracks) in the rubber part. Is this normal, or should I ask the company to send me a new one without any of these cracks?
You need enough clearance to get a jack under the oil pan to lift the motor slightly. You'll never get the new mount on without raising the engine into position.Hello, I'm new to the forum and am doing my motor this weekend. It's been needing it for a year. Is there any reason why you NEED to put the car on jack stands? Is it doable with the car on the ground?
