Q: Does a VW Passat 2003 have a front motor mount?

asked by on

I was wondering if the a vw passat 2003 has a front motor mount

My car has 100000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. There is no directly front motor mount, but there is a mid mount extended to the rear of the engine and a side mount just under the crank area to the frame. There is also a mount that goes from the frame to the transmission. If you need further assistance with your vehicle, then seek out a professional, such as one from YourMechanic, to help you with the replacement of the engine mounts.
