PRT, the first to market choice for complete strut assemblies is proud to introduce a line of engine and transmission mounts. The PRT part number 6111786 and 6111799 for the Hyundai Santa Fe fits the upper motor and transmission mounts. 

PRT mounts match the original mounts for fit, form and function. The mounts use advanced elastomeric materials to reduce noise and vibration. Also, the materials are formulated to withstand the extreme conditions under the hood and under the vehicle. 

For the upper engine mount: 

-Remove the engine cover. 

-Support the engine by placing a jack with a rubber pad on the oil pan. You will have to remove the undertray. 

-Disconnect the grounding strap on the engine front cover. 

-Remove the engine support bracket that connects the engine to the mount. 

-Unfasten the three bolts that hold the mount to the body and remove the old mount. 

-Install the new mount.

-Next, remove the bolts that hold in the ECM. You do not have to disconnect the ECM, just pull it to the side.  

-Inside the driver’s side front wheel well, there is a service cover to access the transaxle mounting bolts. 

-Remove both bolts. 

-Remove the four bolts that hold the bracket that secures the transaxle to the mount.

Tesla Model 3 TPMS Service

Resetting and programming TPMS sensors for a Tesla is a lot like any other vehicle, and the challenge is still the same: keeping the light off.

One of the first items to be replaced on any Tesla model are the tires. This is due to tire wear from the instant torque of the electric motor. When replacing the tires, you will have to service the TPMS sensors. Tesla has used Baolong (from 2012 to 2014), Continental (from 2014 to 2020) and a proprietary sensor that uses Bluetooth. For 2021, the Model Y started to use a sensor that communicates using Bluetooth protocols. Not much is known about the new system except that the sensors are currently available only through Tesla.
