Transmission Mount Question

Post by Beev » 04 Jun 2018 07:16

Hello Again,

I am about to try and fit my 5 speed and cut the hole. I know it was running before in a 510 but I didn't get the cross member with it. I am positive once I put it in this will all become clear but if I can reduce the struggle why not. With my cross member from techno toy tuning and the shown transmission mount

do I still need the rubber isolators that came on the transmission

Your third picture looks like something from a broken mount. Your first two pictures are correct. However, the factory bolts for attaching the center mount to the transmission have a flat side to them and insert from top down so they don't turn when you tighten down the nuts. And the factory nuts are self-locking. But I suspect any m10 bolt,2 washers, lock washer and nut will work, but you may need to ground a flat on the washer under the bolt head to fit into the recess of the transmission.

Thanks! I think I have it all sorted now. Just need to find the correct bolts in the bin of all bolts...

Wouldn't the bolts from the auto trans isolator work if you have them?

They would! However I didn't take the items out of the car and have multiple components for which all the bolts are centrally located in a big box. So it is literally finding the bolts.
