TS top engine mount/steady replacement.
I am getting a thump from the engine bay when I pull away quickly or when the drivers side front wheel hits a bump. The problem is particularly noticable when the engine jerks at low throttle in slow moving traffic (something i have been trying to fix for some time).
It sounds like it is coming from infront of me so I suspect the engine top mount bush has seen better days. The rod itself looks ok but i can move the bush on the engine by hand if I try.
Is this relativly easy to replace? I am sure i won't have any problems butchering the bush out but i am worried about getting the new one in. Do i need a press or will a gclamp be sufficient?.
Just to clarify, it is not the rod i am replacing. It is the bush that is inserted on the same piece of alloy that the Aux organs bolt onto (Power steering and Alternator).
