    Default Auto Transmission Mounts

    How easy is it to replace the rubber auto transmission mounts on a 1989 525. Can it be done without putting the car on a hoist ?? Also.... does any one have an indicator stalk with BC control that they are willing to ship to Perth Western Australia at a resonable price ???
    Thanks

    Default Its very easy, if you have a floor jack and jackstands and a

    big block of wood. Just use the floor jack to raise the car high enough to work under and support it securely with jack stands, Then take a wide block of wood and place it between the transmission pan and the floor jack so that you can just raise the transmission a little bit without crushing or denting the pan, once you just take the load off the transmission , raising it maybe a half an inch, 12 millimeters,, then you unbolt the rear transmission mounts and install the new ones. Very easy and cheap.
