Re: engine mount?????? somethings not right..

Never seen one before but if it's a pointless looking chunk of metal, it will most likely be a vibration damper. If you put your fingers up onto that shelf, is there a cut out/ recess for the lowest part to sit in. If there is, I would try jacking engine up slightly then loosen nut and turn the damper over the cutout then tighten nut. Hopefully that would just leave it hanging in fresh air rather than sitting on the bodywork. Take a look and see what you think.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
