Hi all, apparently my rear engine mount went bad so I ordered it online with the plate. I took it to strauss today and after a while they called me and told me they were having great difficulty with the mount. They called me over and showed me some shaft that goes to the wheel that was frozen inside the old engine mount plate. The mechanic also told me that the bearing for the shaft was bad and the only place to get the bearing or shaft was the dealer.

Anyone know this to be true? Does anyone know the name of this shaft that goes through the engine mount?

I was told it connects the transmission or differential or something to the wheel. On the tip of one end it has some grooves as if to turn something.

My options according to the mechanic are to wait until monday and have a machine shop press out the bad bearing and shaft or go to the dealer and buy a new shaft and bearing. Can someone tell me the exact name of this shaft?

its the entire passenger side axle. the carrier bearing is there because of the distance to the wheel, so it needs extra support.

its a pain in the ass to get out but it rarely goes bad. id take your car to a better shop, because the guy there probably tried to smash it out without removing the retaining ring first.

So if I buy a new axle and carrier bearing, would that include the needed shaft? Is it the driveshaft? I called the dealer he said 350 for a new axle and 75 for a new bearing

What does the retaining ring look like? It comes out with a screwdriver?
I need a drive axle an axle or a drive shaft?

yes!! if you can get one that is still connected and unmolested (no hammer marks on the bearing) then go for it.. it will be a lot easier to swap that in than separating yours and putting a new one in..

Well I already bought an engine mount and that plate.
So I need a carrier bushing and then I could reuse my shaft.

Turns out the mechanic smashed the carrier bearing up trying to take it out so does anyone here know the cost of one of these bearings?

Can't find out until tomorrow when the dealer opens.

You do not have to remove that part to change the rear mount. Unless you had a bearing failure the Mechanic screwed up! There is a nut on top of the rear mount that you remove and after you remove the dog bone you jack up the engine and slide the rear mount out.

We were changing the plate as well as the bearing for the engine.
The shaft goes through that plate.
