04 FXT AT trans mount?

Postby ElZorro » Fri May 29, 2015 3:25 pm

I see a bunch of folks are selling a replacement mount for MTs, anyone know if that works or if there is a specific one for the AT?

I have no clue.
I remember Zak talking of using 3M urethane filler on tran mounts to stiffen them up. Perhaps he can chime in.

I found a stiffer urethane insert for the stock mount, but no full replacement. Ended up going OEM.

Mechanic said "it collapsed", but I forgot to ask them to keep the part so I could see what happened.

It seems like my 1st-2nd gear clunk is gone, thats existed since the early days of having the car, so maybe it was bad.

Yeah, I replaced the stock one with a group N and it firmed up the driveline nicely. So easy to do on my car, but had a bitch of a time on Darin's wagon at the time.

I did mask up the stock one and fill the voids with 78 durromoter urathane, but no use for it after that.

Glad to hear your noise is gone.
