Motor mount replacement

Hey guys, I'm pretty sure that I busted my drivers side motor mount. What do I replace? Is it actually the metal piece or the rubber insert? From what I've seen in the online parts stores they are just the insert. Anybody have any tips on how to replace it. I have a Haynes manual but it's pretty vague. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Motor mount replacement

i have the drivers side motor mount for sale $24 shipped.

the Haynes manual hardly helps out (its basically an over view of the truck) if you work on motors its not hard to replace but if you havent worked on motors then i would find someone to do the job.

guess whos back

Re: Motor mount replacement

I tore into my truck this weekend to replace the DS motor mount and found out that the metal mount that attaches to the block is broken. A piece is missing so I can't weld it back together. Does anybody know where I can get one and how much they cost?

Re: Motor mount replacement

Not sure which one ur talking about theres a steel mount to the frame and then theres the mount thats bolted to the engine round circular wit rubber insert. Mine was broken because the rubber was ripped and u have to replace the whole metal and rubber piece attached to the block. $63 from gm ***Motor Mounts are not where u want to cheap out***

Re: Motor mount replacement

It's the metal part that connects to the motor. It looks like there is a metal mount that is attached to the frame and another metal mount that attaches to the motor with the rubber insert joining the two. I have never seen the mounts apart but it looks like three pieces but maybe I'm wrong. The piece that connects directly to the engine is the piece that's broke. It looks like the corners where it's bolted to the motor broke off.

Re: Motor mount replacement

its only two pieces i believe the motor mount has three bolts and is kinda bitchy to get to. And of course the one long bolt that bolts the two mounts together. oh and be careful putting that long bolt back in i did my motor swap and cross threaded the passenger mount.

Re: Motor mount replacement

so the two pieces you are talking about is the metal mount and the rubber insert? How does it mount to the engine? I really don't want to get rapped at the dealer.

Re: Motor mount replacement

Well I tackled the engine mount replacement. It took about 4 hours and I had to take the exhaust manifold and fender well out to do it, what a misserable location. But I figure that I saved myself about $260 doin it myself as oppossed to the guys at the dealer. Props to Meyers2211 on the motor mount, I have no idea why the parts house would sell just the insert but I found the whole mount on gmpartsdirect.com for $33 comapred to the dealer $60 so not all bad.

Yeah I had a little trouble getting everything to line up again since it has been broke for awhile things kinda got bent. I used a big screw driver/prybar to get things into allignment. I also had to cut the little metal bushing off the rubber mount. There was a design change in that rubber mounts according to the parts guy at the GM dealer. Might try seeing if that would help.
