Work motor mount?

Got everything torn apart for the timing belt job and noticed quite a bit of play in the side engine mount. Seems excessive, but I'm not sure how stiff it's supposed to be. What do you guys think?

Looks fine to me. Look after you install it and have someone rev the engine and see if it moves excessively.

Seems really loose to me. I already ordered a new one, so will be interesting to compare new with old.

Ha ha, so we have 50/50 toss.
Is it cracked? Making noise? Honda mounts are cheap a bundle, just replace it. Sleep well.

If it's bolted to the bracket just underneath then yea it looks suspect, mounts give but dont move.

Would have to see how a new one wiggles to be sure, but since you're already there and it's not overly expensive.......

I compared the new to the old and there wasn't any noticeable difference, so apparently it was fine. $150 spent unnecessarily. Oh well.

OTOH, now you won't have to worry about it for the life of the vehicle.
