    Default Installing Solid Motor Mounts

    They can be purchased at this site http://www.neverenoughauto.com/index...egory_id=15813

    or

    http://www.nissanraceshop.com/produc...5de-999961112g

    Remove 3 or 4 spider clips from this plastic piece


    Remove 14mm bolt holding the front mount


    Remove 14mm bolt holding the rear mount you may need a small extension


    At the Front Remove 2 17mm bolts here


    Remove 2 12mm bolts thats holding the exhaust hanger


    At the Rear remove 2 17mm bolts here



    You can now drop the whole crossmemeber out



    When Reinstalling Make sure you Grease up the Mounts so they can slip right in place.
    It was a pita to get it out on my own so i stopped in the middle of the whole process and took the mount and bracket to a shop and they pressed it out for me for 15 bucks. Took 10mins

    FRONT


    REAR



    Solid Motor Mount VS MMI's (motor mount inserts)



    Soild Motor Mount VS Stock mount










    Quoted from Travis " to get the old mounts out, you can press them out, or, do what I do, and use a sawzall to cut through the metal band. Once you bust through.. you release the tension by creating a small gap from the saw blade, and the mount slides right out."

    And this is how it will look like when u cut it.

    I know this is a very old thread but wanted to ask about the second set of instructions. It says you can cut the mount and the old mount will easily slide out. So you do what now, weld it back? Won't that create a weak point?

    Also, where is a good place to go that can press motor mounts? A tranny shop?

    Well, I found the mounts on ebay for 72 shipped. I have a 7 ebay buck coupon so now 65. The local shop(I called around to a bunch of shops) wants half an hour of labor so 35 for the job.

    So that would be 100 bucks total for new mounts...not too bad.

    What i did was take an electrical saw and saw at the ring then chiseled it out with a hammer and screwdriver. Most shops should have a press.

    Did any of you who have it have to force the crossmember back up to reach the bolt holes? I notice that the mount holes are centered as opposed to being offset to a little bit higher like the stock mounts. Also are you still able to do the $4 WHA with that?

    When you said it's a PITA to get back in, is it because it's fatter? Kinda like having MMI's where the inserts are sandwiched in between the bracket where you have to lube up the sides to slide it up? Or is it because the hole doesn't quite line up with the through-bolt for the engine bracket? Thanks for the help. I'm just trying to see if it's even worth the trouble for a DD.

    to squeeze it in where it was because of the sandwich effect. but just put heavy grease in there and your all good, and if you have a foot and a half screw driver or crowbar you can slide it around till its in the right place. my cars DD and this was like the first thing i did to my car, cause just feeling the motor shake back n forth goin down the road when im slowing me down or stepping on it drives me nuts, just a warning, these have a lot more vibration then mmis but i like the vibration and the immediate wheel response when you get on it is great. you can find both front and rear mounts i got from here

    So is it safe to say that with the right tools this can easily be a parking lot job?

    i have an 8 car garage with a lift.. you could, but itd be a really tight fit, and it would be hard to put enough pressure onto the crossmemer to get it in with it at your chest but nothing a lot of heavy grease cant fix!

    Do what I did when I installed my MMI. Have a jack stand support the engine while the crossmember out and have a jack push the crossmember in.
