Gearbox Problem (More)

Just been on the phone to the mechanic and he said the following:

Because its only jumping out of gear at high speeds in fifth (it stays in at about 60mph, but starts kicking out when i hit 65+) it's probably something to so with vibration.

Anyone know what could be causing excess vibration?

I think one of the alloys is bent, so i'm going to get that sorted.

any other ideas? The mechanic said something about engine mounts, anyone know how or where to check them?

cheers

just look around the engine and 'box at where it connects to the chassis and thats your mounts,try revving the engine to see if the engine moves back and forward on the revs and with the engine off give the engine a shoogle(tech term!!) and see if you get excess movement or clunking(tech term) also a visual check on the rubbers.
