i made a similar wedge months ago from aliminium plate and made a packing piece for other side to make arched cover sit straight when bolted back on so mine wont rust and it does make a huge differance spoke to a few garages and tuning places and the say putting it in will help reduce stress as there is still movement but it is more controlled and not as harsh

I just have a flat ally plate wedged in there with a hole in the top corner and a zip-tie holding it tight to the top thing. A bent piece like doms and bennys would probably be a bit more professional but mine does the same trick.

It does make a huge differance to the smoothness of the ride, no big lurch when lifting off/changing gear etc.

You have cracked bodywork under your main mount I should think

You need the mount stripped out and the bodywork inspected and welded if necessary

Water sits in the bottom of the mounts cradle and rust weakens the body Sad

I expect many of us have this problem but don't know about it yet Mellow

I don't think it's rust that causes it Jim

It's the flexing of the mount tears the bodywork

This in turn then rusts

The creaking could be the exhaust as mine used to do this and the mounting was fine as I fitted a new mount and no metal work damage at all.

I can vouch for this making tha car feel better, especially in 1st gear, no more lurching in traffic!

Looks like that might stay in place a bit longer than our initial efforts with my car Dom Whistle LOL

Mmmmm, mine has rusted and cracked before it even started to tear.

Bear in mind that the thread runs through the body and the rubbing alone would take any rust proofing away

Dom i have to say it your a genius -

I've chocked the mount with a 6mm piece of metal a stainless disc actually and taken the car for a drive.

1. Pulling away there is minimal judder from the clutch.

2. Changing gear is like so smooth its like butter - gears drop in really cleanly and positive.

3. Flooring the car now puts full energy into the wheels instead of iinto the mount moving and this makes car feel faster and you can actually feel the different power coming in across the rev range.

4. Floring it round corners feels a dam site smoother as engine isn't flopping about effecting the steering by tugging at it less.

But the exhaust is leaking at the join more - so what i reckon i will do in this case is wedge both sides equall amount so when engine is in the upright position it will be chocked central rather than chocked back towards the cabin. This should be ok shouldnt it ?

Top man and five gold stars Cool

Its quite amazing how much this effects lots of aspects of the cars drive. Big grin Big grin Big grin

I think you could be right mate, just poped down the garage to get her booked in for next week, and when i got home and reversed into the drive way i hung out the window (Ace Ventura stylee) and it sounds like it coming more from under the car rather than the front, I do have a magnex so could be more than likely the exaust and not the mounts ( I will get them checked anyway)

oh a word of warning regarding packing the mounting out, make sure the pieces are secured ie with cable ties or by the cradle thing that bolts over the top of the mount because if the piece of metal was to fall out of the mount it will fall into the polly belt!!! and it will prob cause big damage!! if it takes out the cambelt
