Default Broken motor mount, best option?

I *think* my driver front motor mount is broken, the middle part is sitting at an angle.

Is it fixable (or is it broken for that matter) or what are my options to source a replacement?

Mount or bracket? Do you have a picture? I gave Timm a bunch of brackets.

It sure looked broken to me when I saw it. It's the later square style and the two halves should be bonded together and not able to rotate like that.

Oh. Don't think I had any more of those lying around.

Martin, that was what was confusing me - are the two halves really bonded together? As in with an adhesive? Strange that something like that wouldn't have a mechanical fastener...but oh well. I agree that it looks broken, that's what made me point it out in the first place. Funny I could have kept driving on it for probably quite some time before I would have noticed any mechanical interferences/problems from it, no noises or anything so far.

I broke one of my round style mounts last year. I called CDan and he said that the square were now the available replacement and I ordered a pair. I think they were about $50 each. The "rubber" center is definitely bonded to each side and you can almost get it to flex by hand.

That's usually the one that goes since the engine is usually pulling on that one. They are bonded that way the flex and vibration can occur.

If we only would have known, you could have taken the one that is right behind you in this photo.
