Took my car into the shop because of a vibration on the steering wheel/dash when stopped at a stoplight/stop sign and the car wasin D4. I suspected it was one of the motor mounts; turns out it was the rear mount gone bad. He ordered a new one from Honda and the bolt holes aren't lining up with the one that's currently on the car. He suspected they just packaged up the wrong part, so he ordered another one. Same thing....right package, but the part still doesn't match. He's calling around and sending pics to other Honda dealers trying to figure out what's goin on. Has anyone heard of this before, and how should he go about replacing the mount? I believe he's saying the old mount has a square bolt pattern, where the new mount has a trapezoidal bolt pattern (or vice versa, I'm not positive on that).

I did verify with a Honda dealer that he is ordering the right partfor the right year model.I alsoforwarded him both links you supplied above. Thanks for the help. I'll let you all know what he finds out.
Ok...for anyone interested...I said I'd let you know what happens on this motor mount issue. Someone hadinstalled a k-member and rear motor mount from a 4 cyl. engine onto the car. That's why the mount he kept ordering never matchedup. Anyway...turns out the arm from the motor that attaches to the mount was rubbing against a metal shield atop the mount; thus causing the noise and vibration. He removed the mount, cut off a portion of that shield, and reinstalled. Noise and vibration gone. Saved me $150 by not having to install a new mount.
