IMO, the order that the engine mounts are likely to fail in the 2nd generation are: 1) front mount, 2) upper torque rod, 3) transmission mount, 4) side mount, 5) rear mount, 6) lower torque rod. Of course, YMMV.I've noticed my engine upper Torque Rod rubber has cracked/gone.
Anyone replaced this and also encountered the rear torque rod and three engine mounts gone as well while doing this replacement ??
Remove the RH wheel and splash shield and you'll see it right there sitting on the subframe. Three bolts go into the subframe and then there's the one through-bolt that connects the rod to the bracket on the engine. If I recall correctly, one of the catalytic converter heat shield bolts also attaches to that mount. Doubtful it needs to be replaced though.Thankyou. Might do both Torque rods and see the improvement.
The lower torque rod is replaced from underneath ?
