Ok this is the mount that will cause you all the grief..

It has FAR to much play in it and can crack the body mount point due to big movement..

Does your engine move when Gear changing..

Follow this guide and i will show you how to cure it.

First thing first move this out the way.

The plug just unclips, push the metal bar in and pull clip off,
Also pull the black clip out of the mount cover

The whole thing just pulls out of its mount...

Move out the way to gain better access

Right with every thing out of the way this is what you will see..

You will need to remove the top cover, The bit on the left
Those 2 bolts are 14mm,

Take them off

Top cover out of the way this is what you will see.

This is just to stop anything coming down and fouling the mount

You need to get that out the way, It just screws on,

34mm Socket

Adjustable wrench/monkey grips

This is what lurks underneath

Now it is a strange one this, Its just a nut that holds the rubbers in place,

But its a small Sparkplug socket size..

Undo that nut

Now this bit is important

You will need to Jack the Engine up

JUST the engine,

2 reasons

1, Too move the engine up into the right angle to take the mount bar off

2, To support the weight of the engine, while the mount isnt there

You will be surprised just how far up it will need to go

BE CAREFULL HERE

Now undo these 4

Top 2 are 17mm Nuts

Bottom 2 are 8mm Hex bits

Bottom 2 first
Then the top 2

If the top 2 are still taking the strain of the mount, Move the engine up more, The mount should have no pressure at all

Lift the rubber Bar out..

I have already sorted the movement problem out here..

There are other ways of doing this as well

Its these rubber blocks that dont sit right and moves the engine rock, You will need to take the space up.

I have gone For a Poly bush block screwed into place

Dommorton put a Bent metal Bar in there

What ever YOU put in there it will need to be fixed TIGHT Dont want it flying into the cambelt nowNo

To remove this you will need to Cold blow it with a screwdriver..

Once it moves it should spin quite easily

Take it out completey

TA DA!!!!Big grinBig grinBig grinBig grinBig grin

This is what things should look like

Nice and clean with no breaks

If the Chassis mount is broken or cracked you will need to get it fixed sharpish

When taking stuff like this apart, Lay all your bits out in order so when you put them back together its easy

Now putting back is the reverse of what you have just done...

Put the Big buffer back in place
Put the rubber bar back in place
Put the main mount bar in place (as you can see in the picture, the Mount buffer will need pushing over a bit to aline it all up
Put the 2 nuts on the mount bar
Put the 2 hex bolts on the mount bar
UNDO jack GENTLY
Do up the nut on the Buffer mount
Screw on the Top part
Attach the Top cover and your nearly there

Thumbs up
