Hey guys, my passenger side engine mount has given up the ghost, so much so that when i boot it the shifter almost hits the plastic surround (manual). Anyway i was just wondering if anyone has some tips to get the passenger side one done, i have bought both and i will be replacing them both at the same time, the drivers side will be a piece of p|ss, but the passenger side is looking a tad tricky. any help would be greatly appreciated guys

cheers

chris

the left side is more tricky,iv replaced my left hand mount about 6 times and the gearbox mount 3 times,if your car broke it from lots of torque and the engine rocking so much,replace them with genuine ford ones,they are the only ones my ea would not break.
i used a hoist most of the time but if you jack it up it can be done,just more tricky

good luck

The passenger side is tricky you can do it you just need to be persistant
