Wow! Awesome info. Thanks.

Hugh - like the idea of the repair. I’m keen to get the car super quiet and smooth though as I’m possibly needing to use it periodically for a 5 hour return journey a couple of times a month.

There’s only one or two of each showing at D&K, so I’d be swift…

I’m not sure if the bush I linked earlier from DMGRS would cross reference with KKF10014, again, best to email them. If it does, it’ll be a cheaper option than getting them posted from Portugal.

I’ve fired them an email. If I can get one of these for £40, it’ll ease the pain for £400 for the others if I can justify it

Just noticed that Rimmers have one KKB100900 in stock. Retail £119 + VAT. They also have a KKH10028!

I’d advise purchasing from them, as D&K are usually very expensive, you have to pay for shipping from Holland and they aren’t the best if there is a problem!

Managed to get a KKH1028 (rear stabiliser) and a KKB101890 (RHS engine top mount) for £40 each. Much as I want to do the lot I think I’ll swap them as I go and keep my eyes peeled and see if I can get the others cheaper. I just cannot spend another £300 on the car at the moment!

You did well with those - are they brand new? If so, where did you source them from?

So some good and bad news - thought I’d fit 2 of the mounts I’d bought today.

The driver side mount was easy to get to - I took your advice, took the weight of the engine on the Jack under the sump with wood to spread the load, slid the reservoir out of the way to access the bolts. Undid the ones to the body -13mm, the one which runs through the mount -18mm and then the ones into the engine block 15mm.

All were very tight but came out ok. Then disaster …. Not the right mount….

Image

Still, I got the right one for the back stabiliser and saw that there is the rear mount underneath it. It was easy to undo the bolts. 5 minutes of wiggling and it was free but fitting the new one meant ensuring a captive nut that hooks over the mount on the engine side was positioned right before the bolt would go in.

With mount removed you can see a mount underneath
