Gear box mounts

Gear box mounts

Transmission mounts are the key connecting element between the engine, transmission and body in a vehicle. They are designed to secure the relevant assembly in the engine compartment, mounted in such a way that the transmission does not come into contact with the body and cannot become detached in case of an accident. The mount also cushions impacts due to uneven road surfaces and absorbs vibrations.

ContiTech has developed a sleeve bearing made of resilient plastic for transmission mounting. The sleeve bearing is produced using a modular system and can be realized as a conventional or hydraulic mount. Depending on product specifications, the component’s damping properties and rigidity can be adapted to different engine and transmission combinations.
