Engine/gearbox mounts

Hi all,

New member here from Ireland. I have an Alfa 156 2 litre (year 2000) and have a question about mounts. When initially accelerating, or when lifting off the accelerator pedal, there is some knocking felt through the car. Not an actual noise, just the motion (and feeling through the gear knob). I had a 156 for a few months a few years back that had the same issue also.

I presume this is some sort of mount that needs replacing, but which one is the likely culprit? engine - if so which mount? gearbox? other?

Also, where is the best place to source parts for this? Alfa dealership, motor factors, eBay?
Bit of a newbie on Alfa's so all help appreciated!

I have a similar problem - no knocking yet, but a perceptible movement as I come off the power, I'll be interested in the responses. I'm assuming it is one of the gearbox mounts, no idea which one at this stage. Scouting around for parts I see that shop4parts have one of them, and EB Spares has the other advertised for the V6 - I think shop4parts has all of them for the 2litre.
