Well, a couple days ago i bottomed out on a speed bump and when the car came crashing down, the bottom mount broke in half. The mount was ordered but my mechanic said he also heard grinding when it was in gear soooo I'm gonna be broke for awhile =(

you might wanna call your insurance agent about that... speed bumps should not break your car unless you're big-time lowered.

Just curious, what bottom mount? We've got pretty big speed bumps going into to work.

Or you hit it at high speed after a dip.

I'm not super big time lowered but the mechanic is only charging me 210 for it >___>. I'd rather not see my rates go up over 210 lol

Honestly, I'm not sure. I was just told there was a bottom mount on the engine that broke in half and part of it was pushing up on the tranny which is why I was hearing a weird sound

It's the 'dog bone mount' aka lower transmission mount (torque rod -- this is what they actually call it).

One end connects to the subframe, and the other to transmission.

Part # 50890-TK6-912

They cost about $110 or so.

Here are some pics of when I pulled my trans. Here you can see it attached to subframe:



And here is the new part on far left:

Oh dang!! I had no idea! It makes sense why it felt weird when I gassed it lol. For the price of the repair and everything, do you think 210 is accurate?

Some days, I'd rather pay $210 for that job, instead of doing it myself. Sounds reasonable to me, however, if you have the tools and garage--and the time--it's an easy enough task to take on yourself.

Definitely a fair price if they used on parts.

Note that in the factory service manual it says to replace the bolt that goes through the torque mount and nut that goes on the end. Chances are they won't. This is a $30 bolt and $8 nut. I don't think it really matters though.

After pulling mine apart, I'm not sure why they need to be replaced, but I did it anyways.

Check out fsm page: 13-47 step #35 and fsm page 13-51 step 12.

It ended up being 200 for the part and the labor. I don't know if they did, I don't think they replaced the bolt and nut. I might have to do that on my own later on.
