Engine Mounting Swap

Recommended Posts

I'm planning on replacing my engine mount. I called to enquire about the part and the dealership person told me over the phone that the transmission adapter will also need to be replaced at the same time.

Can anyone confirm this? If it makes sense, I want to use the opportunity to replace hard to get to items and save on the labour....

Part numbers for both the engine mount and transmission adapter will be much appreciated as well :)

Thanks.

Clubhead:

If you are referring to the transmission brackets, part numbers are as follows:

986 375 084 03 Transmission bracket, right

986 375 083 03 Transmission bracket, left

As for the engine mount...

986 375 023 05 - up to and including MY98

986-375-023-07 - from MY99 on.

Cost for the motor mount, about $225 at Sunset. Or, you could buy an "improved" remanufactured engine mount (stronger than original) from "Pedro's Garage" over on PPBB... $75.00 with core, $125 outright with no core.

Regards, Maurice.

Thanks Maurice for the useful information :)

Is there a need to replace the transmission bracket when swapping out the motor mount then?

Sorry, I don't have first hand information on that question. Maybe the dealer just trying to replace the additional parts so it's not an unknown, but that's only a guess on my part.

How much mileage on the current mount and brackets?

Regards, Maurice.

Regards, Maurice.

I'm doing about 38k miles currently but the car's about 8 years old now so have been replacing a few items of late as a preventive measure. Rubber rots over time so time has to be a factor as well I guess.
