Considering that a lot of the old V8's used 2 mounts, lasted over 100k miles, cost less than $10 each and hardly ever failed! I am somewhat disappointed in nissans engineering capabilities on this one. jmho..............
EXACTLY my sentiments. There are an increasing number of things on modern cars which give small increments of "improvement" but which increase system complexity and repair costs beyond the benefit...at least IMNSHO.
Thanks Joe, I just hope it helps someone out or even possibly helps the DIY'er that is not to certain of themselves. It was not that bad of a job to do. While doing it I also noticed that the inner boot of my cv-joint was torn. None of the parts stores around here carry the inner cv-boot, special order only, about $25 with shipping and handling. So I just opted to replace the whole half-shaft assembly, which comes pre-assembled, with 2 new boots, for $70. Why not get the whole assembly if you are going to be $30 into it just for boots!!!!Jakson-
:29: Excellent write-up.
I will copy your post into a separate thread under the Maintenance section and make it a "sticky".
Your right, at 13mpg they will $50 and $100 you to bankruptcy much faster!Wow another thing I have to watch out for! I wish you luck!
