What rear engine mount do I need? Bjb+6speed

Post by Nox » Tue Aug 13, 2019 9:33 pm

Hi all. I bought an05 caddy last week with a bjb engine that's had a 6 speed swap at some point. On my way to work today the rear/lower engine mount went. On further inspection it was one that someone had fabricated themselves. So, did they do this because there is not a mount available, or were the just massive cheep skates!? It's a bjb engine and the gearbox code is 02m301107d. Your help and knowledge would be really appreciated!!

Hi there, welcome to the forum.

There is no reason why a custom mount would be required for a 02M gearbox on a 2k chassis Caddy.
There are some poor quality repair kits out there for boxes that have cracked the mounting points but making a complete mount is uncalled for.
You need to look for a "dog bone mount" for your caddy, there should be no difference from the standard one for the original 5 speed gearbox.

Thanks Doc. Just took a look at the bogbone mounts and I can see how that would fit. They had knocked something up that connected the subframe to one of the bolts that connects the gearbox to the block - a right bodge. Maybe there is some casting which has broken off. The are a couple of threaded holes on the underside of the gearbox which I hoped a mount would screw in to. Appreciate your help!!

Sounds like the mounting points are broken if you can't see the holes to bolt it in. Should be two holes fairly obvious straight in front of the bush in the subframe.
