3rd time my top motor mount bolt has backed out, ive lock tited the shit out of it and always make sure its on there tight, than randomly one day i'll pop my hood and the thing will start to come out. i opened my hood today to take off the retarded mopar rice plate and the motor mount bolt is snapped inside that silver thing. i have a 7 year 70,000 mile warranty but im sorta scared to take my car in with the stuff thats on it. and honestly i dont have 30 dollars to buy the bolts from modernperformance. i dont think i'll need a new silver thing, but i dont want to risk somehow the threading in there being messed up and something else happening in the future you know? any suggestions? :mad: :mad: :mad:

I would be a little worried too with the mods you have taking it to the dealer. If it's just broken inside that metal ledge, I would just take it to a shop and have them drill it out for you.

As far as the bolts backing out, I have all 3 mounts filled and they never backed out. A dab of blue loctite and torqued them to spec. If they really won't stay in there try some red loctite, it'll be a little difficult to try and remove them next time though.

Just buy a new silver bracket. It shouldnt cost much at all. I think Rob bought a new one since the threads inside were stripped. Head to the dealer and look it up on the computer with them. Should be a piece of cake.

If you know some1 that is good with a drill and has the right bit then have em just drill it out, if not then yea just buy a new silver thing, how much could it cost? 10-20 bucks..
