    Anyone replace 981 PDK transmission mount?

    Checking to see if anyone has changed the transmission mounts on a 981 with PDK?
    Any tips or tricks?

    Re: Anyone replace 981 PDK transmission mount?

    I would be interested to hear the same. Ive had a spontaneously failed dynamic mount on my Sport Chrono 2014 for about 6 months now. I can easily see them when under the car, but I'm not sure if I'm up to the task of swapping it out myself. Its already a ridiculously overpriced part typical of Porsche at $1,500 each. It really pisses me off that something like this just fails for no reason with only 20,000 miles on my car, but a little searching demonstrated that this issue is actually more common that you would think on several different models that use the dynamic engine or transmission mounts. Evidently the electromagnetic coil can just short out and fail.

    Not much help, but last Fall, the Ohio Valley Region PCA had a tech event in Dayton at the research lab that designs and manufactures electro adjustable suspension components for many auto manufacturers around the world. They claim to own the patent for the magnetic fluid used in the suspensions and so everyone has to come to them. We all signed NDAs, so I can't say more, but it was very interesting.
