|Motor mounts may have as many as three functions. First, they are an attachment point to the chassis. Second, they often act as an isolator – keeping noise and/or vibration from being transferred to the driver and passengers. In some cases, they may also be an adjustment point to keep components in proper alignment.|
Most mounts are made of steel and rubber. Time, heat, automotive chemicals and vapors will deteriorate the rubber’s consistency and elasticity. Because mounts are often out of sight, they are ignored when a vehicle is serviced. Slowly, the rubber will deteriorate and the vibration begins to be felt. If these problems aren’t addressed, the results can range from annoying noises to binding and ultimately destruction of components. Pioneer highly recommends that the mounts be replaced when an engine is removed for major service or replacement.
