Gen 2.5 transmission mount replacement
« on: August 27, 2017, 11:46:47 AM »
Found my transmission mount was toasted during a fluid and filter change to the transmission.

I bought an aftermarket mount online for about $35.

Remove the T/Case skid plate or any other underbody protection you have that may be in the way. 4 12mm head bolts hold it on.

Support the transmission and t/case assembly with a jack. You have to remove the transmission cross member, so this part is important.

Loosen, but don't remove the transmission mount bolts. By doing that, the cross member can hang from the transmission as you remove the 4 bolts on each side. Makes it much easier to handle.

Remove the 4 bolts on both sides of the cross member, then remove the bolts from the transmission mount that cross member is hanging from.

Remove the two 14 mm head bolts holding the mount on, match the orientation and replace it with the new one. I also swapped over those little rubber guards. Installation is reverse of removal.

Remember to hang the cross member and mount by the bolts in the transmission first, this makes installation much easier.

 Make sure you check that mount every few months. Excellent write up!

Is there poly bushings that can be pressed into it?

 Yeah, we're still testing those and we bought all Siberian had. So while they make more we'll test them out and see how it goes.

The product is this Siberian bushing - http://shop.adventuredrivendesign.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=71_73&product_id=126

You need two of them, and to install them which requires a press.      There is not yet a bolt-in product available,  not sure on its development status   :(
