    Default 205 GTI gearstick wobble?

    Hi all,

    Advertisement


    After fitting group N engine mounts my gearstick wobbles (left to right) under load, just wondering if this is just the expected vibration transfer or something isn't aligned properly and something to worry about

    Cheers

    Instead of what the standard engine mounts were designed to do, absorb vibration (Let the motor shake/vibrate and the car stay still) now the stiff mounts let the motor and the car shake/vibrate.

    I had an motorkhana special that I once bolted the motor up without rubber mounts. Not only did bolts on the car shake lose but I thought some of the fillings in my teeth came lose. I put the rubber mounts back in before the next outing.
