034Motorsport Transmission Mount Insert Upgrade for B8 Audi A4/S4/RS4, A5/S5/RS5, Q5/SQ5 | 034-509-4014

The installation of your 034Motorsport Transmission Mount Insert for the B8 Audi A4/S4/RS4 & A5/S5/RS5 is a relatively simple process that will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. This billet aluminum insert is designed to fill the large void in the factory transmission mount, and limit transmission movement without sacrificing ride quality. By filling the void in the factory mount, this insert eliminates the associated slop and ensures that you're experiencing crisper shifts and a smoother driving experience.

Supplied Parts:

Tools Needed:

  • Hands (Opposable Thumbs Are Optional)
  • 10mm Triple Square Bit
  • Wrench
  • Blue Loctite (Recommended)
  • Ramps, Lift, or Jack & Jackstands

Step 0 – Raise the vehicle securely on jackstands, ramps, or a lift, in order to gain access to the transmission mount. Make sure you have all tools necessary for installation of the transmission mount insert. Give yourself a pep-talk in front of the bathroom mirror, reinforcing the fact that you are an expert enthusiast with a mechanical aptitude second only to Charlie Sheen’s. For good measure, take a selfie while you’re at it.

Step 1 – Locate the transmission mount, and observe the two 10mm triple square bolts in their natural habitat. Be careful to avoid frightening the bolts. It is imperative that the bolts are relaxed and unaware of what is going to happen next.

Step 2Remove the two 10mm triple square bolts from the transmission mount, and remove the small bracket at the bottom. Let the feeling of accomplishment overcome you.

Step 3 – Observe the exposed transmission mount, and take note of the large void in the rubber. That can’t be good for performance, can it? Think of objects you can use to fill the void: old socks, yesterday’s newspaper, that weird quinoa stuff that your wife bought for $20 at Whole Foods, but nobody wants to eat. Panic. Remember that you bought the 034Motorsport Transmission Mount Insert. Feel better.

Step 4 – Press the shiny new 034Motorsport Transmission Mount Insert into the void. The orientation of the 034Motorsport logo is not important. Or is it? It’s not, but it might matter to you.

Step 5 – Secure the 034Motorsport Transmission Mount Insert using the 10mm triple square bolts you removed in Step 2 and torque to 20 Nm. Blue Loctite is recommended. Yes, we provided an anchor link back to Step 2 so that you wouldn’t get lost. We’re nice people like that over here.

    Hi Guys

    I saw reviews over at www.audiworld.com and am interested. I live in Chile but between 5th and 17th February I will be in a rented house in Los Angeles. Can you guys deliver to an address there even though my credit card is an overseas mastercard? If you can then please could you also advise where I could get the required wrench and loctite while in LA. Cheers.

      Hello,

      Thank you for the comment! Yes, we can ship to your rental house in LA. :)

      Just make sure to specify that as your shipping address when completing checkout. As for the 10mm Triple Square Bit and Blue Loctite needed for installation, you can purchase them at most auto parts and hardware stores including Sears, Auto Zone, etc. Hope that helps!


      Cheers,

    Hi, I´m from Spain. I have an A4 2.0t stage 2 Revo and I got some terribles "clonks" due to the engine movement when accelerating or shifting. Do you recommend this article?
    The engine motor mounts too?
    Thanks in advance!

      Hello,

      Thank you for the message! If you are experiencing a clunk on your B8 Audi A4 2.0T, we would recommend getting this Transmission Mount Insert as well as replacing your engine mounts with our Street Density Performance Mounts. The stock engine mounts tear easily on tuned 2.0T cars, especially on the passenger side mount. I've included links to the parts below. Shipping is available to Spain via DHL Express, and takes 3-4 working days.

    I have a 2013 Audi S4 with the AWE touring exhaust with Non res DPs . When I start it cold I hear this little rattling noise coming from underneath the driver seat. Im completely unsure of what it could be. would this product help maybe?

      Hi Justin,

      I'd check to make sure the exhaust isn't contacting anything underneath the car, and that all undercarriage trays and heat shields are properly attached. Sometimes exhaust leaks can sound like rattles, so that's another good thing to look for.

      It isn't meant to address rattling issues, but the B8/B8.5 Audi S4 Transmission Mount Insert will make your shifting much crisper and more precise. :)

      Hope that helps!

      Cheers,
      Laszlo

    Hey guys, do you recommend this item for 3.0 TDI S-Tronic A5s? Would it result in increased noise, vibration or harshness?

    Thanks in advance,

      Hi Petko,

      We do recommend it for TDI cars as well, and there is only a minimal increase in NVH. Hope that helps!
