Mini Cooper Engine Mount / Motor Mount Application Guide

The factory original upper engine mount (passenger side of engine) is a hydraulic unit that tends to fail over time.  If you see a black mess under the upper engine mount, the fluid has leaked out and it has failed.

For the following GEN1 models:

  • 2002-2006 R50 MINI Cooper and R53 Cooper S Hardtop
  • 2005-2008 R52 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Convertible

The factory original engine mounts uses rubber in order to isolate the Noise Vibration and Harshness (NVH) from the cabin.  The upgraded engine mounts uses harder compound than rubber in order to limit engine movement allowing more immediate transfer of power to the axles for improved acceleration.  These harder compounds also transmit more NMH into the cabin requiring a tradeoff between comfort vs. performance.  Select the replacement based on your priorities.

See our Mini Cooper Performance Parts, an Upgrade Guide for your Mini for other upgrade options.
