Porsche Crest Porsche 924s engine mount replacement

My car vibrates and the timing and balance shaft belts are correctly installed i was wondering if anyone has ever changed their engine mounts out, if so how hard was it and what did you do?

Yes, changing your motor mounts is a pain in the back side, but it is a do-able project in your garage. There is a good write up at clarks-garage. You may want to consider not using the after-market motor mounts however. The job is time consuming and the after-market mounts that I originally bought lasted about three months before being junk. Go with the good stuff! Good luck

i did it, and it only took me a couple hours. you need your basic metric wrenches/ratchet and a good jack and a couple jackstands. also make sure you chock your rear wheels.

i jacked up the front and put it on jackstands. found a nice piece of wood that was wide enough to distribute the pressure from a jack on the oil pan, then i supported the engine. i then unbolted the four crossmember bolts, the rear a-arm bolts, and all of the bolts on the motor mounts. then you can usually jimmy the cross member down, and get the mounts out, you may also need to lift the engine a little. 'installation is the reverse of removal' - haynes manual it's pretty cut and dried... just take it slow and it'll be pretty good. it also helps to make sure your car is clean under there, greasy/oily components make for a tougher time getting things apart and back together.

while you're in there you will want to check out the sway bar bushings... come to think of it i also removed the sway bar when i did this, it was convenient to get it out of the way, and i think when i did it i swapped it to an S2 bar.

happy wrenching!
