Engine mounting

Post by LEEDS »

I have a Citroen Picasso C3 1.6 VTR 2011. I have been told that I may have a broken engine mounting or that the engine chassis wherevtge mounting is may have cracked and need welding. As there is a sound coming from the drivers side when going over a bump or when I turn the engine of at rimes.

My question is,

1. Does the engine need to come out if I have to replace the mounting or if it needs welding ?

Second I cannot get it fixed until next week. Is it safe to drive.
Thanks

The mount will be replaceable with the engine in, but it may need to come out if it does need welding, depending on where. I can't ever recall one needing welding here however, a broken or worn mount seems more likely.

Hard to say without seeing it, if it broke properly it could cause some additional damage.
