Seating of washer on Engine Mounts -hot side


Go to solution Solved by CarBuff,

Recommended Posts

Im into the fun job of changing the engine mounts & rubber washers,

The hot side does not look right to me,

The wash sits proud, not mating on the rubber -thought I should grind some metal down...

Then looking at my photo before disassembled, I see it was like that from the factory 

So maybe its a ‘design feature’ I don’t understand ?!

Any thoughts please,32699C6D-4F2E-4A1E-9289-789E529D8980.thumb.jpeg.be10efa996c0e36d0b3dae2c36effcc8.jpeg

The LF mount on our '88 TE has looked like your second pic for many years, no issues.

Now, if you had an S1 or S2 without rear upper control arms, I'd worry.  <<DUCKS>>

It's the gapped hot side which looks right to me. The separation from the mount outer casing enables movement of the bolt carried in the bushed rubber internal structure, providing compliance one must have in a non-solid attachment. Correct?
