Here is my situation;

I have a 99 ph3 6, the exhaust has ALWAYS blown. I had a Magnex fitted assuming the original was just f*cked....which it was.

After a month the exhaust began to blow so I had it refitted....then a month later.....etc.

The exhaust has now been fitted 3 times and is yet again blowing.

Looking at my engine mount there is no gap between the mount buffer and chassis so chocking it is going to be both impossible and pointless.

So my options are;

1) keep having the exhaust refitted time and time again.
2) Have a flex section welded onto the join meaning my decat would have to go (because thats where it keeps seperating).
3) Ignore it
4) Try group N engine mounts

Which would you choose?

sure it's not the exhaust fitting?

My 205 exhaust kept separating where stainless met mild steel

I ended up tightening the clamp sh*t loads till it nearly snapped then welded the nuts in place

I'm positive, the guy who fitted it said he couldn't tighten it up any more than it already was.

Options are limited and I'm at the point where I f*cking hate my car.

is the engine actually moving much?

As mine used to move loads and the exhaust caused no problems?

try changing the exhaust hangers

if they are fooked the system flops about loads

I have the same problem and have fitted three fixing kits and it still bloody blows - but my CAT is fecked loads is hissing really loud and makes a really deep thwaaaaaarp sound when flooring it so my theory is this the CAT is so knackered and blocked that the gases are forcing open the spring joint as an easier way out. I will prove this once i fit a new CAT which shouldn't be to long now - i'll let you know the outcome.

Engine mount plate welded in and solid as a rock Big grin Big grin Big grin

Now with the plate coming right up the sides it stops the mount moving back and forth almost completely

So glad thats done Yes ... I fear many others will go the same way around 70 - 80 K Miles. Sad

Its probably the bottom mount thats the problem. Thats what was causing me loads of exhaust trouble. It had moved around and was therefore moving too much, the rubber is shaped a bit like (-) and mine was like this ( l ) so it moved too much and caused the exhaust to snap in the middle section all the time.
Make sense?

Maybe it was wrong from the factory but bear in mind it had done 100k when I got it so I can't believe it hadn't been a problem before, unless it went a bit softer over the time and dodn't matter previously.
I know that was the problem though and putting in a new one the right way round cured it. A sure fire cure would be an uprated one that has rubber all the way round.

The mount in question is speared by the driveshaft Dry

your must remove the drivers side drive shaft

then support engine on jack

Then remove housing with mount in

Press old mount out and press new in

Then rebuild
