Gear Box Mounts
Transmission mounts are the key connecting element between the engine, transmission and chassis 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 chassis and cannot become detached in the event of an accident. The mount also cushions impacts caused by uneven road surfaces and absorbs vibrations.
Continental has developed a sleeve bearing manufactured from resilient plastic for transmission mounting. The sleeve bearing is manufactured on the basis of a modular system and can be designed as a conventional or hydraulic mount. Depending on product specifications, the damping properties and rigidity of the component can be adapted to different engine and transmission combinations.
