    Is this Mounts or Torque Converter? I Have a Vibration in reverse, In drive it's fine, but neutral is getting quite loud, also when turning right I get a vibration while turning, should I replace mounts?

    In neutral the torque convertor is disengaged. I'd go with the engine or something else.

    All sorted was the mounts replaced all 3, wow what a difference? It's quite stressful when you're guessing what it could be?

    I have the exact same problem as yx55kzw only really understood it when Howard Williams garage opened the bonnet and showed me the engine jump out.....proper freaky..

    Should be getting mine fixed this coming few weeks. Can i ask what you paid for it, I'm only going to get one mount changed, is it worth doing all and also how many mounts is their in total.

    Thanks
    Nad

    Hi,
    When I had my engine and gearbox mounts replaced by Olly (BlackC55), the engine mounts were approx. £75 each and the gearbox one about £26, from MB, took about hour or so to do.
    IMO you should get all three done at the same time, as they have all covered the same mileage, and would be false economy just to get the one done.
