Torque axis mount on '97 SL2

Discussion in 'Saturn S-series' started by Gary Kirchherr, Nov 25, 2004.

  1. While getting my SES-light-related problem fixed, the tech noted that
    the torque axis mount had collapsed, which is going to cost me $165 to
    repair. Is this something I can put off, or does letting it slide for a
    while put me at risk for seriously damaging the engine and/or powertrain?

  2. you could put it off, or you could spend $40 at your local autoparts store
    and do it yourself. simply put a jack under the oil pan (you can even use
    the spare tire jack if you don't have any other one), and remove the 3
    bolts from the front cover of the engine, and the 2 from the mounting
    bracket. installation is the oposite. you'll need a 15mm deep socket to
    do the job.

  3. Mine crapped out about every 50k miles. Also I needed a stud kit and I
    can't remember the cost. Quite a few have done it themselves (not me), and
    Kevin Keller's reply sounds straight-forward if you do your own work.

    I think Lane, Kirk and Bandit (to name a few) have done theirs too.

    I've done the one on my son's '96 SL2 twice. Not a big deal if you
    can turn a basic wrench. I agree with Jonnie's assessment of Kevin's

    It's pretty easy. What Kevin said. Jack under the oil pan to support, change

    no big deal.
