Hello and thank you for contacting YourMechanic. The engine mounts for the engine are the same, however, the transmission mounts are different for the FWD and AWD. There are a total of 4 mounts - one engine mount and 3 transmission mounts. If you need further assistance replacing the engine / transmission mounts, then seek out a professional, such as one from YourMechanic, to help you with your vehicle.
