Re: forge braces on 1.9 multijet

I had a new engine mount and gearbox mount fitted Friday along with a new EGR valve for good luck, like driving a new car.

The gearbox mount was modified before fitting. Very simple - there is a large 'nipple' on the mount which appears to be the offending item causing the rattling. My mate took an angle grinder to it to smooth it off. Seems to have done the trick!
