    Default Big ask- Saturday mechanic

    It maybe a fair stretch but does anyone know a French mechanic open on a Saturday. Had the suspension looked at and all seems fine, what I need done is a drivers side engine mount. Have bought the part, just don't have the know how to do it. If anybody does and wants to make some $$$ for an hours work please PM me. Can bring car to anywhere in metro Melbourne.

    306 drivers side top engine mount is a quick job. 4 bolts on the engine, 2 bolts on the mount top strap, and the large top nut on the top bump stop. Undo the mount, replace, and do all the bolts back up again. Bit of loctite on the bumpstop thread. Doing it nicely involves a jack underneath to stop the engine dropping while you do it.

    I'd like to say that 'any' mechanic could do it (not just a Pug mechanic) but simple jobs like this do seem to elude lots of mechanics for some reason.

    Cheers

    I think that Elliott is still working - mobile. He has helped me out before and his work is good. Another possibility to try would be Cars of France / Darebin Tyre and Service 9479 7552. They work on Satuday morning from 8.00 but may not be able to fit you in at short notice.

    Thanks Guys, luckily found a fellow forumer who's been kind enough to do it. Elliott is great but wasn't available tomorrow.
