Front motor mount bolt looks wrong !!
I was looking around my engine today and I noticed that my front motor mount top bolt looked as it it were coming loose. I attempted to tighten it down but it was really hard. Im guessing that it came defected from the factory as this has never been touched before. Can you guys confirm that this bolt should be all the way in. It looks to me as if the bolt got cross threaded during assembly and they just left it in there.

Great time for a solid front mount.
Your suspicions are probably true.

That ain't right - if you can't remove the bolt - cut the head and remove the whole front mount - the front of the engine can be easily lifted to allow you to slide the mount out with the help of a friend. If you're lucky and can remove the bolt - trie to retap the threads - probable a 8mm tap
Best of luck.

i would just get a solid mount and take it to the hardware store for a new stainless bolt, i used blue loctite on mine.
or i can find out what size tap you need when i get home from work using my OE mount.

With the new solid mount, does the ride suffer ? I guess im thinking of a car, ive upgraded mounts before on some race cars ive had in the past with polyurethane and the ride has suffered drastically. The car handled great but rode really rough.(the vibrations would rattle your jaw)
