Re: gear box mounts and engine mounts

It may be better to get someone to help you. Engine mounts is a reasonably simple job but it can still go wrong.

The mounts are best bought from a dealer. I never saw any others at an Auto Factor etc. but they may also be available as pattern parts (i.e. made by someone else other than Fiat).

The main engine mount is the more likely to fail as it holds up more weight... buy that one first and see if it fixes the problem. you can buy the others later if you still need to.

Basically it's bolted to the engine by 3 bolts and the inner wing by a further 3 bolts. You'll need a ratchet and a short (4") extension and a 13 or 15mm socket.

Jack the car up and remove the o/side front wheel and the plastic wheel arch liner. That'll let you see the side of the engine and get your head into the wheel arch/inner wing.

Stick the car on an axle stand (place it under the wishbone mounting point)and lower the car onto it. Take the jack out and put it under the sump. Jack up the saddle until it contacts the sump and takes up the weight of the engine. Don't lift the engine more than 1 or 2 cm.

Unbolt the engine mount. Normally I do the engine bolts first. If you have the right amount of tension under the sump, the engine won't move at all. If it drops a bit, squeeze the jack a bit until all the mount holes line up again.

Then remove the bolts securing the old mount to the inner wing.

The new one should go in in exactly the same as the old one came out. Remove the jack and then re-fit the wheel liner, wheel and take it off the stands.. Sorted. Probably a 1-hour job.
