You have to zoom in but you can see the rubber has a tear in and the bottom has a crack in. If you go on ebay and look at used subframes they mostly have broken bushes, you might be able to see the damage better on them.
I could see the tear in the rubber part of the mount. I've got a pic somewhere..
I also had a knock when driving over a certain type of bump when braking. And it felt like it was under the accelerator.
It just didn't feel right. As I tightened it it got easier and I worried about it snapping so I backed it out.
I think I must have had my torque wrench set wrong or had a faulty bolt. I put the old ones back in temporarily till new ones arrived.
Attached is a picture of the thread you can...
I have the issue where my joirney to work used to be pretty much like highway driving, but now there is so much traffic on the roads I spends ages sitting in queues.
My car seems to drink more fuel than I'd like in traffic, I suspect I might need to look at injetors or DPF next. Perhaps even...
B5, I think you put a link in somewhere listing the injectors released for the 3.0 engines. I wanted to try and find a set of the latest released injectors over the next few months to make that another job ticked off my list. Was the list done by yourself?
Hi there I'm in Cambs, sorry to hear about your fault. There is a garage in st Neots which quoted me 1400 all in for cam chain replacement. For the level of work it seems fair given the cost of a cam chain kit. I should be able to get the details if you need it if you think it's that.
I have the mounts done now, two had cracked which were causing my issues. The car feels much sharper to drive than before for steering / breaking and it has got rid of the vibration when driving / noise over bumps.
If anyone is interested I used Strongflex subframe mounts, they cost £103.50...
I've got a crack I'm my front axle drivers side rear subframe mount, it's causing vibration at 70 - 90 and a knock at low speed when braking over a bump.
I've done the rest of the suspension myself, has anyone else tackled this themselves or will this be a job too far without a pit, I should...
after a long days work on my car I thought it was worth sharing how bad my rear bumpstops and top mounts were, I knew they were bad hence the work but I don't think I appreciated how bad until I got them off and they started to crumble.
My car has just clocked...
