Severity of replacing the dogbone mount?

How important is it that I replace this. Mine's cracked and the guy at AutoZone said he could get a new on for around $40. Also does replacing it just require removing the 2 bolts?

i'll assume its a 2.2 cuz of ur sig... but yes, its super easy... i just replaced mine, along with 2 others... but the dogbone is just the 2 14mm bolts... only problem u may have is aligning the new one to the holes. u might have a buddy rock the motor back and forth while u start the bolts, or u can sometimes rock it as you start the bolts... but its about a 15 min job i'd say

Change the dogbone mount soon. You are might damage your front motor mount which cost about $ 150.

#1 - $40 at autozone isn't a deal. They cost $40 at the Toyota dealer

#2 - put a jackstand under your engine when you change it so you don't have the hole alignment issue.

#3 - make sure your front mount isn't bad before you put it on, because if it is, that new mount you just paid $40 for will be cracked soon afterward.

If you changed all the mounts, think it was about $650 installed.

Some guy at Toyota thought that one up.
"Lets suspend this big heavy engine on a few pieces of rubber.
We'll call it sound and vibration dampening and it will be good."
"We then will make everything important inaccessable and if they move anything, it will f*ck those rubbers up, where we will make 1000% profit and our dealers will rake in labor charges."
"Lets put the belts in a really messed up place,so they can't be inspected easily so the owner will either freak and change early or cry and pay for tow truckplus charges. But we cut them a break and give them non-inteference engines so they don't junk and go to another brand car."

------------------ Still think the Camry is a great car.

Really? You work for Toyota or something? Parts alone was more than $220.

When the dog bone mount is gone , probably the front is gone too. The rear motor mount rearly fails (according to a toyota mechanics). These motor mounts are not just rubber. They contain hydraulic fluid and when they brake the mount will loose this fluid and the isoloator capacity. The result will be the infamous vibration felt in D or R. Now all the mounts changed for $220 that's a deal. Give us some insight please.... The ceapest front motor mount for a 95 camry that I have found is US$ 95 (from Japan).

On the V6 motor, there is a small shock like mount to the right of the actual motor mount. What is that? Is the front motor mount difficult to replace?
