When a car has a faulty, worn out, or broken gearbox mount, its passengers are bound to experience excessive vibration, a bumpy ride, or abnormal noise while riding in it. Gearbox mounts are essential for a car's stability on the road. They cushion engine/gearbox movement and absorb vibration, thus preventing powertrain damage and improving driver and passenger comfort. They can break or fail as they age because of normal wear and tear, heavy loads, or fluid leaks. This is especially so with standard rubber gearbox mounts with solid rubber cushions and steel-backed plates. The rubber weakens with time, becoming less and less effective at absorbing the gearbox's vibrations.
Our aftermarket gear mounts Australia are made using tougher and more durable materials, e.g., polyurethane with CNC'ed aluminium plates. They are better at minimizing transmission vibrations than standard/factory mounts; thus, they guarantee reduced wheel hop and better driving composure. Our mounts offer the above without negatively impacting road noise and harshness.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is it safe to operate a vehicle with a damaged gearbox mount?
No. Driving with a damaged gearbox mount is not advised. A broken mount can misalign your transmission, damaging your drive shafts or cables. Depending on the car model, the drive shaft might even crash to the ground in severe cases.
Why does gearbox mounting fail?
Vibration breaks the steel bracket, and oxidation destroys the mounting rubber or urethane, causing transmission mount failure after 60,000 to 100,000 miles or more. Also, broken transmission mounts could happen from improperly lifting the engine and transmission assembly during removal.
Can a bad transmission mount impact how your gearbox shifts gears?
Yes, the shift linkage, cables, or driveshaft may become tense if your mount is defective and the transmission isn't in the proper position. It can affect how smoothly the gearbox shifts.
Are transmission mounts necessary for driving?
A malfunctioning mount will significantly affect the vehicle's performance and cause significant engine damage. Driving when your motor mount is broken is quite dangerous.

How long can I drive with a broken transmission mount?
It depends on the extent of the damage. If you're experiencing only minor symptoms, it may be safe to continue driving for a while. But for more severe symptoms, you must replace the mounts or risk powertrain damage.
