Hi,

I'm going to be ordering one of these mounts this week as i'm getting a knocking noise when coming on and off the accelerator at low speeds, changing gear at low speeds and when dipping the clutch at low speed.

It seems that people who have had this mount fitted has cured their knocking noise, is this still the case?

I know there is a trade of with Viabrations but Si on here kindly let me try his car and it is a small price to pay for loosing the most irritating knocking noise. In fact the viabration make the car feel sportier. It's frustrating when you're in traffic or a car park! knock, knock, knock!

Last question. For people who have fitted the mount themselves, do you just tighten the two mounting bolts as tight as you can or do they need tightening with a torque wrench?

Sorry if these are silly questions, i kind of know what to do but lack confidence in doing it!

Can't wait to get mine :)

If the cars still under warranty i would get it in to Ford before spending any money! It could be the usual CV joint failiure or just a loose bolt!

chances are the knocking you are getting is from the top gear box mount, this isn't even the one that is replaced, it is known to work loose. check the tightness of ALL the gearbox mounts when you fit the vibra mount

Why not? I'm sure there is a market for this mount to be softened a little. They're missing out on a niche bit of the market........MISSED OPPORTUNITY!!!!

good piece of kit in my opinion and worth every penny .
