Punto Engine Mount

Hi,

I have an R reg 1997 Fiat Punto 1.2 8v and a garage I took it to recently said that the left or right engine mount may have gone. This is because it has been making an awful rattling noise when going over a rough surface.

My question is what is the official name for these engine mounts? Is it just engine mount or something more specific? Apparently, one engine mount would cost 95 from Fiat so I am hoping to get some used from a scrapyard.

Also, is there any difference between a left and right engine mount? Buying from a scrapyard there is a chance they may be useless so if I bought a couple at least then that should increase my chance of getting this problem sorted.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Re: Punto Engine Mount

If you'd rather buy new without paying Fiat prices, have a look on http://www.shop4parts.co.uk/ (For their range of Mk1 engine mounts - try HERE)

If you donate to the forum, you get access to the members area and offers - including 10% off shop4parts orders.

Even if you donate 1, and spend over a tenner, you've already saved money

Re: Punto Engine Mount

Thanks SeanW

Might be my only hope actually. Is my car an MK1? I think it is according to Wikipedia.

Sorry to bug you again, but is the driver's side engine mount different to the passenger side? So you can't just buy two of the same and apply them to the left and right.

Thanks again though for that site. Funny I didn't come across it whilst searching through the web.

Cheers!

Re: Punto Engine Mount

Mounts will likely be different for each side, and yes you have a Mk1
