Hi,

I'm currently in the middle of changing my near side engine mount. Does anybody have any tips on getting the new one into position. The old one came out easily as it was in two pieces.

Thanks

Rich

Make sure you cut the threads to the same length as the one you remove.

Thanks for the advice I didn't think to check that. Is it possible to change one side whilst the other side is still connected.

Probably quicker to remove airbox and offside mount 1st from my experience.

It's a fiddle, replaced n/s in mine
Unbolt both sides engine mount. Jack up engine as high as possible, With a big piece of wood between engine and chassis, push the engine to o/s.
Then it should be possible to fiddle it in.

Ronald.
