Default Motor Mount

Car was acting up a week ago. I thought it was the cv joints because it started clicking when I would turn right mainly. Went on a 240 mile drive and it started making horrible clunking, rattling noises. Changed front lower passenger side motor mount (33.99 Autozone Part Number:
2949), no more strange noises.

I just wanted to say thanks to all the people on here for such wonderful information, yet again

Boy, you are on a roll - first the plugs and wires, now this!
LOTS easier/cheaper than CV joints.

I just hope the Autozone mm's you people are using aren't as flimsy and crap as the OEM mm's are otherwise you will be changing them again. The SRT-4 motor mounts are a lot stronger and fit the PT.

I hope not also, that would bite.

Actually it was the motor mount first, then the sparks, but I posted the spark plug "Thank you" first I sure hope nothing else needs fixing.
I'm only out about 100, so I feel lucky compared to some others. I consider the sparks & wires routine maintenance.

My husband jacked up the car on both sides behind the front wheels on the frame, he then put a jack and block of wood under the motor then he removed two bolts, pulled the broken motor mount off and replaced it with the new one. It took him about 20 minutes. Sorry if I wasn't much help, theres not really much instruction to give.

The one's you normally get from the auto parts stores are generally very close to OEM. There are others available, but if you're driving a PT with an automatic tranny, stick with the one's simiilar to OEM, anything else will rattle your teeth. I'm getting ready to replace mine with the solid "dog bones", but with a manual tranny it's not as noticeable, the shaking that is.

Im trying to figure out which mount your referring to, is it the middle mount that attaches to the motor? The round one? passenger side, not upper not dogbone but the other one, its a nightmare to find if you dont know what your looking right? the main star bolt can be accessed throught the pass side wheel well right? lol Im making sure I know what the hell Im talking about as well. Girly here too. Your lucky, at least your man knows what to do ... mine.. aaaah not so much. Im on my own.

Take off your right front tire, remove the plastic splash shield from the fender well, and you'll be looking right at the lower motor mount. Somewhere here on one of these posts somebody (maybe Crewzin?) posted a photo of it.

By the way, if you notice the dates on these posts, they are a couple years old so not sure you'll get a reply from her.
