Our 9-5 SE | Replace Engine/Transmission Mounts
Fixed Broken Engine Strut on pax side and new trans mount on driver's side

This album contains 8 photos and 0 albums.



Old transmission mount (driver's side) Bolts were a PITA to remove. Lots of PB Blaster (top and bottom) and slow working back and forth.

Transmission stud without the mount
This is the bare trans stud before new mount went in. Had to jack up the trans to put main bolt on

Broken Bolt Compared to Commercial Bolt
Had to buy washers to use with the new bolts since the originals had retained washers - see other photo for difference- End of new bolt was square versus tapered

Old Engine Strut with broken bolt
Bolt hole at left was stripped causing center bolt to fail aluminum does not take a lot of torque - bolt at the right was intact and tight.
