Motor Mount Question

Post by Taz » Sat Mar 16, 2013 11:21 pm

Hey guys. I just bought this 01 R/T on the 6th. I finally had time to look for issues and fix them. Motor Mounts were shot so I replaced top and bottom. Trans mount was fine. The one that is a pain is that mid mount. The mount itself is fine. It's the bolt that is the issue. It's snapped in half and the piece is stuck in there. So I will have to get that sucker out tomorrow. Question is does Autoparts store carry these? Or is this a dealer bolt? It's a T-55 Torx bolt.

i would have thought its dealer specific, but any bolt of same length and thread would do the job, i would expect it would need the Torx fitting though due to accessability

I don't think it needs to be a torx. I remember changing that out when I did my timing belt. If it was a socket head, it should be fine.

that whole plate the bolt is snapped in can be removed like your changing the timing belt.

I put in a grade 8 bolt in my center mount, I forget where i got it from.

This is exactly what I did. Took off the plate then, went to Lowes to pick me up a Grade 8 Bolt. Worked like a charm. Thanks for the help fellas. Engine leveled out again :)
