You're right, one isn't pictured, but I very much hope that he just forgot to set it in there for the picture.

He'll need to go back in if he didn't properly torque it.

Sorry I'm late to the party.

Yes I have a torque wrench.

But No, I didn't have it when I did this. and Yes, my 'mechanic friend' actually, had to go back in there to do it. [Admittedly, I don't know what the torque spec was/is] .

and as said already, you definitely want to Torque is Properly. The last thing you want is it vibrating you back to square 1.

How did you guys get the jack in there to support the engine? My jack isn't very big but I'm having a hard time figuring out how to get it in there to support the engine.

Did you go from the front or through the side? Any helpful tips?

Thanks!

I'm almost positive I went in through the front ...O_o...ahem...
I also used a block of wood. Beyond that, nothing special that I can recall.

Did it rub up against the front bumper going in? I didn't want to force it through. Can you tell this is my first attempt at something like this? LOL

I've since lowered my car, and my jack still slides in just fine from the front with no rub. At the end of the day, I don't think there is "correct" angle/way to approach this. Although the block of wood is obviously Highly recommended.

Haha, no worries, that's what we're here for.

If your to low, drive up on a couple of 2'' x4's, slide the jack under & then use a 2x4 on top of the jack saddle.

Okay I figured a way to wiggle it in there, I couldn't use a 2 x 4 though because there just isn't enough clearance.

I noticed a slight improvement in cabin vibration when I lifted it, but nothing as dramatic as what people have said.

Is it possible there is another mount that needs changing? or is it because I didn't use a 2 x 4 ?

Thanks guys!

I used a jack and just placed it under the engine, block of wood can be used so as to spread it out but you're not jacking it up, just giving it some support while you change the mount/bracket. Or one could use a hoist with the eyelets that are on their engine. (I have two that came with it.) I only replaced the rubber insert that went into the bracket, was a little bit of a pain getting the old one out and the new one in but I saved some money doing it that way.
It IS a day and night difference when you replace this mount, mine was so bad that it had come out in two pieces.

Okay but prior to replacing the mount, did you jack up the engine to see if there was a difference?

I have noticeable vibration in the car, it got better when I lifted the engine a little bit but it didn't completely go away.

Thanks for your input!
