Did you actually do it yourself replace the engine mount on the right side, there is the CAT, guess its a CAT, bolted to the turbo, which is preventing removing the mount. How did you handle it? The WIS is a joke for the 648 engine and year.Found this on another post.
The white is the rubber dust cover. It tends to fade after a while. It's not a hard job to do but it's a little difficult particularly on the passenger side. There is no room to work and you have to remove the 4 bolts which fasten the bracket to the engine and remove and reinstall both the mount and the bracket as one assembly. It does make a big difference in terms of vibration and noise, I changed mine (all 3) at around 130K. Based on the fresh air intake hose, the engine now sits about 3/4" (19 mm) higher than it did before I replaced the mounts. I used to get this strange "thump" when the transmission shifted down and replacing the mounts solved that problem also.
Yikes. I hate it when we go backwards. I agree with you, it looks like Lowes is phasing these out in metric and SAE. I could not find the 5/8 wrench either.
Go for the Amazon wrench, besides it's cheaper! I could not dream of doing this job without this tool. Post your experience!
