Default Motor Mount Problem AGAIN!!!

I just replaced the lower right motor mount back in october 2012.

When I had the wheel off again this morning, I was surprised to see that it looked like this:

1) Do I need to replace the other engine mounts as well???

2) Is it because I messed up the inner weather protector (between the wheel well and the right side of the engine) and the weather is getting at it?

3) When I replaced it the first time, I am not sure that I jacked the oil pan up a little bit (as I read I was supposed to). Everything came off / went on fine. Did I mess everything up by NOT raising the oil pan when I removed / replaced the lower mount?

You can't properly install the motor mounts without supporting the engine.
In addition you should inspect all mounts because one bad mount will put stress on the others.

Check to upper as well. Either way you need to install these as per the manual, or you put undo stress on the mounts.
