Transmission Hydromount

Recommended Posts

Looking for some insight on replacement of the driver side transmission mount for a 1997 Boxster, 58K miles, 2.5L, 5-speed manual. I've been tracking down a small fluid leak at the rear driver side, dripping from the sway bar mounting bracket. Noted fluid leak from transmission mount located above that area. Can anyone provide some details on this hydromount (sounds like it could leak)? Also, assuming this is the source of the leak, any recommendations on the scope of the job (transmission removal required?) and other maintenance to consider while in that area given the mileage. I've owned the car for the last 10K miles and I don't know if there was any transmission/clutch work done previously.

I believe the oem mounts are fluid filled. As for replacement there is only 4 bolts that hold the bracket/mount.

Replacement would be considered moderately easy

Hope that helps

Thanks for the info. I'm preparing for a visit to my local repair shop and wanted to get an idea of what I'm in for.
