Hey everyone, got a VP V6, went for E Safety inspection today, need new engine mounts. I knew i needed it done, but have been avoiding it because i was quoted $800, from Midas-:cry: But, instead he quoted me 120 for all 3 mounts, and $140 labour, so i don't really mind now. Are there just 3 mounts? I've had a look, but only real quick, and couldn't see the mounts, apart from the bolt and thread from underneath for the passenger side mount- Is it at all possible to replace them myself? if so what would i need to tackle it? i don't mind spending time, but if it's really difficult then yeah i'll just get him to do it.
Also on a similar note gearbox mounts, how many are there? and could i do them? Before anyone replies, searched- yes, results- no...so please just reply if you can genuinely help with advice, and thank you to those who can:thumbsup:

3mount sounds like the trans one aswell what you quoted (260) is a good price they're a prick of a job to do especially with aircon in the way

Yeah, it's a real pain to do on the V6 motors. If you're not mechanically adept, I'd be paying them to do it. That's not a terrible price.

You can get mounts cheaper, though. I picked up all three mounts for my V8 for $75, and installed them myself in about an hour. But then the V8 mount setup is far more user friendly :)

there going in tommorow, so hopefully it all goes well. I thought $140 was way too cheap for both mounts and the gearbox mount, hopefully he dosent call me half way through and yeah......
