What does a front engine mount look like?

Engine and transmission mounts are made of a heavy rubber and are usually black in color. On either side of the rubber is a way to attach it, one side to the motor or transmission and the other to a part of the cars frame. They allow the engine and transmission to vibrate without causing the whole car to shake. A front engine mount would be on a car with frontwheel drive ( sideways facing motor ) attaching it to the front of the frame in the engine compartment.

The balancer is made of 2 pieces That have a rubber piece in the center of them that hold the balancer together.
