    Gear Box Mount snapped :(

    hey all, for about a week now my car has been making a horrendous squeaking noise. So i took it to my mates work place where we had it on a ramp and saw that the front mount had worn down to nothing so we ended up going to get one from vauxhall for £67 . When it was back on we could see all that was happening was the engine was still going downb to the same place as before and putting a massive amount of stress onto the new mount, hmmmmmm we thought. After a little in vestigation we found this......



    As you can see the bracket on top of the gear box mount has snapped . Problem was it was too late to back to vauxhall so got to wait untill monday now. Left my car at mates workshop. Dont susspose anyone knows how much i will be looking at for a new one of these?
