1993 cadillac deville motor mount replacement

This answer was rated:

the air conditioner compressor is hitting the frame when car is gassed in reverse. Replace the right rear mount? If so how?

Sounds like it could be the transaxle mount, but I would consider inspecting the torque strut as well. I have included diagrams and instructions to replace all of the mounts if necessary.

WHERE IS THE STRUT YOU MENTIONED THANKS
The torque strut is in the upper left box of the first diagram. It bolts to the bracket above the radiator.

there is no torque strut on car!? Thanks, Wayne
Does it not have a front top mount (torque strut is commonly referred to as a dogbone because of its shape)? According to the diagram it bolt above the center of the radiator and to your engine.
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
no it is not there . there is nothing between the motor and the radiator.
I would then assume that the front lower engine mount serves as a torque dampener.
