Ok so right now we’re going to replace the
driver’s side motor mount on a Mitsubishi Galant. This one’s a 1999. The driver’s
side motor mount is actually underneath the battery. You can see it tucked down in there;
the two little holes are the same two little holes that are right here. Your battery connection
might be a little bit different than mine. I just unscrewed these two little wing nuts
right here and then the whole contraption just lifts up and away from the battery. Disconnect
the battery terminals with the 10 millimeter bolt. Here on the ledge for the battery there
are two bolts here, and then two bolts down here. All those are 12 millimeters. And then
there are two 10 millimeter bolts right here on this little wire bracket thing. And that
takes off the little shelf for the battery bracket. Alright so this little guy is bolted
in directly on top of that bolt right there. 17 millimeter just took it right off. And
then I have my…on each of the four bolts down there…one here, one there, one there
and then one underneath in that little slot. They are 17 millimeters and so I just have
my breaker bar right there with the little extension piece 17 millimeter attachment.
I’m just breaking each of these loose. Alright so I took out the air filter box and basically
it’s just a bunch of those little 10 millimeter bolts that are sitting around the outside.
And then unplug this as well just by pressing that down and pulling it out. A little 10
millimeter screw right here as well. And then that will give me more access to work on my
motor mount underneath all these cables. These things are in the absolute worst position
possible. So if you look at the new motor mount there’s a hole through the center
of it. On this motor mount there’s a 17 millimeter bolt that sits right there going
through the motor mount. And then there’s the 17 millimeter nut on this end that I have
attached two wrenches to…two ratchets. One’s on this end, one’s on this end. And so as
I turn this one, the other one’s holding it still…holding the nut still so that this
will ratchet off. If I didn’t have both wrenches it would just turn and turn and turn
and never come off. And I would do this: loosen up the center bolt, before you take off all
4 of the base bolts. That way this doesn’t shake around while you’re undoing it. So
in order to have enough room to get then engine…to get that transition mount away from the engine,
you have to take off this huge bar underneath the engine. So these two bolts are 18 millimeters.
And these are the two bolts along the back side of the bar. This one and this one that
need to be taken off. And once you take this bar off, that will let you lower the engine
enough to give enough space between the engine and the frame to get that motor mount out.
And now there’s enough room for me to lift this up and out. So you can see the inside
of there is just all torn up and that’s what’s causing the vibrations in the car.
Anyway, keep those little pads because you’re going to install them on the next one as well.
With a little persuasion I got the new mount on the old bolts that are sticking up. Now
I’m going to lift the engine back up so that will fit back in the holes that it needs
to. And with a little more persuasion I got the bolt in through that eye of the mount
and it’s sticking through right over here. Basically I just took in there and kind of
wedged it down so that it would line up the other end of the bolt with the hole on this
side. And then I have this little cat’s paw right here that I can use to kind of pry
it up, just metal on metal, and kind of get the hole aligned just a little bit. Just make
sure you don’t hit the rubber or else it will break the mount again. Alright so everything’s
back in place. There are the two screws on the front of the bar…two bolts on the front
of the bar, two bolts on the back of the bar. We have the engine mount in place underneath
the battery. Battery’s back on. Battery’s tied down. Box is in place. Hoses are screwed
down. Wires are back together. That’s how you change the engine mount on a Mitsubishi
Galant. If you have any questions make sure to leave them in the comments below. Don’t
