Decided to embark on the replacement of the drivers side motor mount. When I tried the inside bolt, it apparantly has been sheared out by a really nice previous mechanic. I got an assurance from a nice German mechanic that he would cut out the old and install the new for $100. Is that a decent price? I have tried everything short of sprinkling Holy Water on the mount to get the bolt loose.

I have tools for this. If you are a regular customer of mine, it is free for me to remove bolts like this. This is why some jobs will be best left to us, I guess.

I can assure you if I were anywhere near Georgia, I WOULD be a regular customer. I have changed the mounts in the last 2 cars, and I used new the price they're a good investment. Unfortunately, the shops that I have tried here in Dallas have tried to gouge me for anything they could---things like wanting to change the turbo when there was just a hole in the main pipe. Big difference in price. Larry Bible has recommended a mechanic, so I will call him for an estimate today too. The car came with some of the records, as the old lady that bought it new had misplaced some. If I could find the mechanic that stripped it out--well, a few expressive words might be in order. I figure, if he'll cut this one out and install the new for that price, then it isn't too bad.
Thanks for your help, and all the advise you give. Your generosity has save others LOTS of time and money.
