    So on top of my motor mount, there is an extension mount for my intake with a soft rubber mount. Well I kept hearing a rattling sound. Pop the hood and the weld broke completely.

    It's out of warranty now too, and the aftermarket injen intake and other parts won't help.

    Your '07 is out of warrany?? How is that possible?

    And, are you saying the motor mount broke or the extension mount for the intake broke?

    It's the extension. I purchased it in summer of '06, I drive a lot.


    I do have the intake box kicking around, so I guess I'll have to put it back on and stuff. I could try and reweld it, but I might try and get them to deal with it. I've heard the motor moves a bit under load, but I didn't think it'd be possible to brake off the bracket like it did.



    This isn't a light rattle. It sounds like an old coffee can full of bolts is shaking about every single bump I hit or from 1000-2000 rpms.
