Engine mountings - renewal

1 The engine mountings incorporate hydraulic dampers and must be renewed if excessive engine movement is evident.

2 Working in the engine compartment, unscrew the central nuts securing the engine mounting brackets to the tops of the mountings. Recover the washers.

3 Apply the handbrake, jack up the front of the vehicle and support on axle stands (see “Jacking and Vehicle Support”).

4 Working underneath the vehicle, remove the central nuts securing the mountings to the crossmember. Recover the washers.

5 Raise the engine using a suitable hoist and lifting tackle attached to the engine lifting brackets on the cylinder head, or a jack and interposed block of wood under the sump, until the mountings can be withdrawn.

6 Fit the new mountings, then lower the engine onto them. Note that the locating pins on the mountings must engage with the corresponding holes in the engine mounting brackets (see illustration).
