Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to replace the torque strut mount. Also you could say it's the upper passenger side engine mount. This is a 1998 Toyota Camry. It's the same for the ‘97 to 2001 Camry as well as the Toyota Solara with a 2.2 liter engine.

You'll need new torque engine mount from 1AAuto.com, 14 millimeter socket, ratchet and extension and a torque wrench.

Open the hood and secure the hood prop. Your upper motor mount, torque mount or most commonly the dog bone mount on your Toyota is located at the top passenger side of the engine bay. We're going to remove this and this 14 millimeter bolt, using a 14 millimeter socket and ratchet. Once the bolt's removed, simply work the mount out of it's housings.

Here we have our old dog bone mount from the vehicle and our new mount from 1AAuto.com. As you can see, these mounts are the exact same size and shape. They have the same mounting locations, both at the body side and the engine side. Your engine is constantly moving back and forth working the mount like this. That causes tearing in the motor mount, as you can see here, as well as tearing the material out of the inside here. See, we have nice, thick solid rubber in the new mount here. As that rubber wears out, breaks down and tears, this sleeve can move back and forth inside the steel of the mount as your engine rocks back and forth during acceleration and deceleration causing a delayed feel in the change of power as well as a loud clunking noise as the engine moves forward and back causing this sleeve to hit the edges of the mount.

Install your new motor mount. You'll notice that this arm is offset. You'll want the side where it's closer to the edge facing the engine, as so. Slide the motor mount into the body. You may have to tap it a little bit down into the bracket on the engine side. The shorter of the two bolts will go on the body side. The longer of the two bolts will go through the mount on the engine bracket. You may have to tap it a little to get the bolt to line up. Tighten the bolts down with a 14 millimeter socket and ratchet. Torque the bolts to 47 foot pounds.
