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.
