Default Trans and motor mounts sheered off

Had to slam on my brakes to avoiding hitting a kid in the street. Felt a jolt but my car still ran so I drove home. Looked underneath to see what happened and 1 of my motor mounts and both of my trans mounts had ripped in half. Is there an easy way to fix this

We had the same thing happen to our 24 Hr of lemons POS they were just old and abused. They are a wear item and when it's time to go they do.

If you just daily the car get OEM they are nice and quiet and vibration free.

Hi Monica!

All are easy to replace if you have 4 jack stands a floor jack, A set of wobble socket extensions to reach the top nuts for the front motor mounts, and 13mm Sockets/wrench for the tranny mounts and trans cross member.

I believe the tranny cross member is the same for E36s. Check RealOEM. then grab one off a salvage yard for pennies off a new one.

Once you do replace them I suspect the car will drive so much smoother with a feel of slightly more power.

Do you need a DIY for changing the mounts? There are a few write-ups for E36 and E39s that are applicable. Drop a note here if you can't locate any.

Good luck!

Pretty straight forward. I made my daughter change hers last summer. I was there to help and guide her. You can actually do it with only a pair of jackstands and a floor jack.
