Hi,
I am looking for the front passenger side motor mount for a 1994 3 cylinder automatic.
I wasted my money on a kit on ebay advertized for automatic.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/200963115221?ss ... 1497.l2649
Imagine my disappointment after I get the kit I see they essentially mailed me a kit for a manual car that also includes the automatic strut mount.
So I started looking into the actual part numbers to try and track down the correct part.
The numbers:
6812,6814 are for manual cars only
6808 is the firewall mount that appears to be interchangable between the auto/man.
6818 is the automatic strut mount.
So I started looking for the correct passenger side mount for automatic.
I found this on ebay:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Front-Mount-Wit ... 4b&vxp=mtr
Part number:
6880
But it only lists up to 1991.
I have only had the pleasure of working on 1992-1994 cars.
I know there are some differences between the 1991 and 1992-1994 cars but I don't know the particulars other than the dashboard and bumper differences.
The photo in the 1991 automatic listing looks correct (the mount tab is in the correct direction), but are the 1991 and 1992-1994 front passenger automatic motor mounts interchangable?

Hi,
If no-one knows the next best thing would be if someone that owns a 91 with automatic could post a couple of close-up photos of the front passenger side mount....
I would really appreciate it!

Ok, so I guess I am the only automatic owner here? :huh: lol
Well more on this saga....
Based on endless searching online for any photos that might happen to have an earlier mount in a photo.
By appearance the best I could make out in grainy photos is the 1991 should work on my 1994. Why they are advertized only up to 1991? Who the heck knows. :vibe:
I decided to gamble that the 1991 mount would work on my 1994 and ordered one.
Yet again, the world is against me and I am sorely disappointed.
So back to more sleuthing online. I found Rock auto is selling the part #6880 as automatic front and #6812 as standard trans. They are the same exact *(^*&% part which is hogwash cause in real life they are supposed to point opposite directions.
6880:
http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinf ... cc=1141681
6812:
http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinf ... cc=1141681
Notice the difference? None! Same (*^*(^&*^ thing!
However, what is this 8527# also advertized as auto?
http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinf ... cc=1141681
Notice the difference? None! Same (*^*(^&*^ thing except flipped over in the photo!
But I did not order from Rock auto. I ordered from ebay.
6880:
http://www.ebay.com/ctg/DEA-TTPA-A6880- ... 7675.l2644
This is a photo of the correct part! This is what I ordered!
But what did I get?
Of course, I got 8527 in a 6880 box! The box has the correct photo! The correct part #s too! But they are packaging 6812 as 8527 and 6880!
What a freaking mess!
I predict the future for me has some rediculously long phone calls to try and get my money back.....
