Engine mount shims

Post by RobC »

The front rubber of the top engine mount on my 16v is a good way away from the actual mount, so it's high time to get the two reacquainted.

Does anyone know if these will fit a 16v..? presumably cit and pug had similar mounts. https://www.peugeot-tuning-parts.co.uk/ ... m-bbm.html

They certainly look the same.

Cheers. Was about to order them then noticed the £10 shipping charge. No thanks, I think I will fashion my own!

Yes make your own. I have just fitted washers behind them in the past together with renewing the bottom mount to try and stop excessive engine movement.

Have you got Peugeot or Citroen rubbers? I couldnt find Citroen ones so had to buy Peugeot which have a different "anti spin" feature.

Some pictures here;

I’ve got no idea what make the existing mounts are! Just that there’s at least a 5mm gap where there shouldn’t be :lol:

Useful pics, thanks.
