Belmont exhaust mount?
on behalf of my mate chris this one, his white belmont has a problem.
there is a bracket joining the front pipe to an engine mount. this has snapped straight across. My own mk2 astra does not hav this bracket,a trip round all the local breakers has not found one like it either.
its a 1989 f-plate 16sv belmont,manual.any gen ppl?????
bugging the crap out of us this one.
vauxhall not showing it on the epc.
That would be like this then? It is NLS on the EPC, you use a longer one and take the pipe out that goes from the down-pipes to the front silencer.

....THATS THE FAX I GOT FROM VAUXHALL.
LOOKS NOTHING LIKE THE ONE ON THE CAR THO.
ITS PART OF A MOUNTING, NOT SHOWN ON THE EPC.
NEVER SEEN ONE LIKE IT B4.
ANY1 ELSE HAV ANY IDEAS?
Well the pipes will be a different shape and the bit from the pipes is straight, but that is because they don't do a unique diagram for each part.
So is it the bracket that is welded to the pipes that is broken or the mounting to the car that the bracket on the pipe clamps to?
there is an engine mount that has a bracket on it.this bracket extends out to meet the front pipe bracket.it is the engine mount bracket that has broken.
It's the bracket that the flexi joint mounts to. Never hear of one snapping, although the amount I've seen that haven't been bolted on or have a knackered bush is incredible.
These are the 2 engine mounts that were used for the belmont fitted with a 16SV engine, the bottom one (No 1) is listed as manual transmission, the other is auto.
Is the bit you want on there?
GOT THAT PIC ASWELL,ITS PART OF NO.1,BUT ISNT SHOWN!
THIS IS WELL WIERD. NEVER COME ACROSS THIS B4.
AS ITS AN "OLDER" CAR,VAUXHALL DONT SEEM TO BE ABLE TO HELP
