Need New Motor Mount?? 06' Solara

Postby wkbrdr91 » Fri Jan 07, 2011 9:58 pm

As I was installing the HID's for my fog lights, I noticed what I believe to be the motor mount (though I did not analyze it and I am really not sure) that is possibly broken. The pics below are of the passenger side, pics taken as if your facing the side of the car. I took a picture that just shows the rim just for reference of where it is (took a step back).

I really hope its not broken... I already need an oil change, new tires ($1000), and a new laptop as mine died a couple days ago. Time to pull student loans! :(

Don't worry, your motor mounts are fine and they will remain so for the car's lifetime.

I checked out Costco for the tires and they have a deal on the Michelins ($70 off of ANY set of 4 Michelin tires).

Check out the Michelin Pilot MXM4 tires that they are selling, it is W rated, which is higher than V rated and its only 168.99 per tire:

I went to the dealer about 4 months ago or so and they told me I needed new ones. But luckily the warranty I had covered it. But yea I think yours should be fine.

Am I right about that being the motor mount? It was my friend who analyzed what it was, not me. But whatever it is... is it messed up or is that how it's supposed to look for some weird reason?

Have the motor mounts checked out by a second mechanic to get a second opinion before you do anything.

if u want good tires at a great price either the falken 452's or falken Azenis RT-615K , i have both & if u want a great street performance tire the 452 is for u, if u want more of a handling tire as for street auto cross track & even drag the rt-615k is great & there about $130 a tire & the 452's are about the same price....
