Default How long to get revised motor mounts?

I have a question for all of you who have had the revised motor mounts installed that are supposed to help with the AFM vibration in the steering wheel. How long did it take the dealership to get the parts in?

The dealership said the part is obsolete and that they would have to look around for a dealer that had them. Is this correct or not? Tomorrow will be a week since they looked at the car,and I haven't heard anything yet. I know this is the holiday season so I'm cutting them a little slack. I'm on vacation until the 2nd so it would be easier on my wife and I to get the problem corrected while I'm off work.

I had mine replaced a few weeks ago, no wait involved. The new mounts do reduce vibration a great deal, but with my car I think the issue is the drive shaft rather than AFM vibration, so the mounts addressed a symptom more than the disease.

They're covered under the warranty. I was able to look up the mounts on a few parts websites so I don't know what the deal is. I'm having a couple of other things fixed so they might be waiting to get all the parts in at once.

I looked under the car the other day,and it looks like my rear main is leaking too. They will have to look at that also when I do take the car back in.

Anything would be an improvement over the way my car acts in AFM.

Is there any way to know if they have been replaced already?

The dealership should be able to make a printout of everything that's been done to the vehicle. I found out my crank pulley had been replaced under warranty that way. Twice if I remember correctly.

Ooh, I hadn't heard about these new mounts. Does anyone know what's different about them? Are they less performance-oriented i.e. softer for reduced NVH while allowing the engine to move a bit more? Or is it an improved design with essentially no negatives other than price and/or time? I've always had my car feel quite rough at times when I don't feel it should be like that. It is usually okay but sometimes it acts like it has hard polyurethane (or even solid) mounts. May be AFM-related but not sure.

Thanks for the info Greg. I got the other # from a TSB I saw on here. I've heard from the parts man at our local dealership that the part #'s can change pretty regularly!

I recently took my car in for a crackling/grinding noise first thing in the morning in gear. Thought it was the trans but they checked and all looks good. They found a motor mount that was broken and want to replace them to see if that fixes it but they're back ordered. I assume that they're the revised mounts but didn't ask. I have a GXP and will post results when they get everything straight.

I've been waiting for a few weeks now for the motor mounts to come in. Dealership stated they are on a national back order list. But still no ETA. It's frustrating since I'm waiting to get these replaced before I put my headers on.

New mount is huge improvement from stock. Now I can't tell when AFM kicks in since there is no more vibration.

I didn't notice anything with the new mounts. I still have a slight shake at idle.
