    URGENT: Help with 205 bottom mount

    Hi guys,

    Advertisement


    My bottom engine mount is totally shattered and with the track day coming up very fast I need your advice.

    How easy is it to replace, Im worried that it is pressed in.

    Any advice is apreciated.

    See Peter above - also it could be awkward either way as you may have to remove the aluminuim bracket from the engine - which means withdrawing a drive shaft. Otherwise it may be possible to cut through the old mounting, knock it out and 'press' the new mounting into place using some threaded rod - all in situ.

    I have a spare - complete with engine mounting - so you could either use this one, or use it with a new mounting so the project becomes only a change over.

    If you're interested give me a call on 0411030936

    Either way you'll need to remove the RH drive shaft. I/we have the tool(s) for undoing the drive shaft nut. Removing the bracket, and pressing out and in the bush is the easy part.

    Thanks to both Peter and Denis.

    I have sorted the problem out, my mechanic friend came over and did all for me while I was at work.
