New 200tdi engine mount equals new back massager

This past weekend I replaced a broken engine mount. I ordered through a common vendor and got part number anr1808g. It was supposed to be softer. The wrapper said Britpart.

It is so horrific. Might as well be a poly or solid mount. My teeth chatter.

Please help and offer solutions.

Anthony

Doesn't the G suffix usually indicate Genuine?

Even if your engine mount was solid aluminum, it shouldn't shake that much.

Something else is wrong, and may be to the reason why the original mount failed. Britpart is a distributor and makes nothing. Having their name on a bag gives no clue to the origin of the part.

Have you ever driven a truck with QT motor mounts? Its pretty bad on a V8 and instantly noticeable.

Anthony -

I had the same problem. I was reaching out to anyone that could offer any advice for my 200Tdi on a 1984 D90. The solution (Not perfect but damn near) was from purchasing the REAL RANGE ROVER mounts. Not BritPart. I had them replaced at SafariHP. The mounts, I believe were about $50-60 each. But well worth the money. It really made all the difference in the world. I'd give Stephen a call. Ask him what part number that he put on Brady's D90 truck.

Hope that helps.

Does the shaking occur at idle only or all through the rev range?

It does.... it means that it was shipped out to the lowest bidder and made of the crappiest available ingredients.


avoid britpart at all costs!

Googling ANR1808 results in many options. Surprised at the massive variation in cost. It's not something to compromise on.

The motor runs great. The shaking is at idle. The motor mount is transferring all vibrations to the chassis. That is the problem. Even when driving down the road I can feel more now.

I haven't been in a TDI that doesn't shake at idle. But to be clear, I am not experiencing anything abnormal. It's not shaking violently.

I ordered the "g" part number which was supposed to be genuine.

This winter I promise to have a set of hydraulic filled motor mounts that absorb vibrations.
In the meantime keep the number for your dentist in case any fillings shake out.

I was just trying to dig that post up to see when your motor mounts are coming out. I'm on the list.

The "G" parts are OEM, not genuine.

I have read about your solution. Much looking forward to it. Please, please put me in the front of the line. This is my daily driver and driving it became a whole lot more annoying. My eyeballs vibrate.

Try a trick that Uncle Douglas taught me - raise the idle rpm by a little bit. It made a huge difference in my truck.

The new motor mount will soften out with time.
