What is an Engine Mount?

Basically, the engine mounts are a rubber bush located between steel brackets mounted to the engine block and engine cross member.

They can be filled with an oil type liquid to help with noise and vibration levels inside the cabin.

How are Engine Mounts replaced?

  • The engine mounts are inspected to identify which mounts require replacing
  • The vehicle is raised up and the engine supported
  • The old engine mounts are removed and new ones fitted
  • The vehicle is road tested to check for correct operation

Tips to Remember

  • You may only feel the vibration in drive or reverse, depending on how worn the engine mount is.
  • The transmission of your vehicle is also held in place with a rubber mount, so it is best to have this inspected for wear or damage at the same time.

How Important is Having your Engine Mounts Replaced?

Having worn or failed engine mounts can make the cabin of your vehicle an uncomfortable place to be. Increased vibration and noise can make it feel like your car is going to fall apart! It also means that the engine is not as secure as it needs to be. While the likelihood of the engine falling out completely is next to none, failed engine mounts put more stress on other components such as the exhaust and cooling systems, so they should be replaced as soon as an issue is found.
