Here is the 1st mount that we replaced:
The center section is barely hanging on by one of the four attachment points.
Here is what a new one looks like:
The next one was not much better:
As you can see, it is only hanging on by one attachment point also.
Here's a new one:
The 3rd mount actually could have lasted a little longer as none of the attachment points had broken yet, but were obviously cracking. Additionally, stress from being overworked due to the other mounts being broken explained the recommendation to replace it.
As far as the tail light is concerned, that should arrive tomorrow. The broken one had a dime size hole in it. The last two inspections, I had taped over the hole with clear tape. According to the shop, Virginia no longer allows this cheap repair. In my opinion, they would have ignored it if I had remembered to freshen the tape.
Still have the brakes to do, but that will have to wait for another time.....
