Most of the pictures dont show up on my tablet, phone or pc. Is it just the one mount that ever needs to be replaced? Are the others solid rubber or something?
The OEM side engine mount is hydraulic (filled with oil). Aftermarket ones come in solid rubber or hydraulic.Most of the pictures dont show up on my tablet, phone or pc. Is it just the one mount that ever needs to be replaced? Are the others solid rubber or something?
Oh cool thanks!The OEM side engine mount is hydraulic (filled with oil). Aftermarket ones come in solid rubber or hydraulic.
There's also a rear transmission mount, but I'm not sure of the details on that. I think mine needs to be replaced...my car vibrates. :cornmad:
Im having the same experience myself. I finally found the non hydro cheep mount. And put that in hoping it would be a little stiffer and not count as a mod for Auto X. Ya the engine vibes fill the car real good until it warms up. For anyone who has to deal with winter this might not be the way to go. Takes a long time for it to heat up and get soft in the morning. If your commute is only a half hour or so you might not feel it get smooth by the time you get to work lol.^ You made the right choice going with OEM mount. I recently switched out my eBay to OEM also.
The eBay one is too harsh when the car is cold soaked overnight. Felt like I'm driving a POS for 20 min. until the mount warms and soften up. Now with OEM mount my car feels like day one no matter how cold it gets.
My eBay mount is also for sale if anyone wants it. It should be fine as long as you live in southern states.
FIY: I found the genuine OEM mount for $170ish on eBay.
Yikes...sorry to hear you had so many problems. I actually got mine on eBay and the fitment was great. The rubber cone part eventually settled, so I had to had some washers to raise the cast aluminum brace up off the mount since it was causing vibrations. It's good now. I definitely wouldn't pay the price that brick and mortar stores are charging though.Just got my Anchor 9280 from RockAuto.
The part was not exactly like the original part. The part was not well made. One of the holes in the top plate did not line up with the nut below when they were welded together so you could not get the bolt started. Five minutes with a dremel tool fixed that.
The rubber cone part was also narrower and taller. I thought with the engine weight on the rubber, it would compress and be in the right place. No luck.
Also I could not get the bolt back into the fender. It was misaligned by about 3/16". Took the mount back out and compared to original again. Turns out the metal part of the Anchor mount was 3/16" taller.
Maybe RockAuto got some reject parts and are selling them so cheap. I know Oreilly's sell the same part for $152 vs. $26 at RockAuto.
I'm thinking about buying from Autozone for $149 with a lifetime warranty.
One shouldn't have to go thru so much trouble to change out the motor mount.
