azmalu Posted September 28, 2006 Share Posted September 28, 2006 Yesterday my mechanic replaced front and top (dogbone) mount. I was already concerned when I saw the job because top mount still wasnt centered so I had a feeling it will fall apart soon again. The only reason I thought it was okay is because car was silent in idle. This morning was fine then at lunch I just started hearing noise and feeling some vibrations(not Marky Marky Good Vibrations either) from front left. Inspected mount and it seems likes its moving. He mentioned taking off old was easy but for the new he had to wedge rod behind engine to move it forward enough for it to fit. Keep in mind I wrecked this in 2003 and had to replace the whole front clip. but no noise and vibration issues till the last month or two. He said bottom mount is a pain to get to but I will try and check it out tonight. Before I throw more money into replacing that one too should I bich at mechanic about not doing job right? will post pic of new top mount installed when I get home. 1 hour and half labor for this job at $90 Reasonable or closer to rape?
