Default New hydramount sloshes like a coconut - correct?

It's all in the title really.

I have bought a new diesel hydramount which, when shaken gently, sounds like a 3/4 full coconut.

For those who have experience in shaking these things, does that sound right?

Fanx.

Not at all, that sounds like either a cheap copy or faulted unit

Send it back either for an exchange or refund, and buy one from a reputable seller

Thanks for confirming that. It didn't seem right to me.

It is fresh from DMGRS - Perhaps just an odd duff one that sods law sent in my direction. I will drop them a line.

Cheers Brian.

In fact 3/4 full was optimistic - I'd pessimistically say it was half empty!

"Hello Alan,
Don't worry - this is normal, and the original mount fitted to my MG ZT did the same when removed (this also hadn't leaked).
"

Anyone?

The original diesel hydramount is filled with a very viscous silicone

In addition the shore hardness of the rubber in diesel models is different to the petrol version.

I have the original used mount removed from my ZT, and a new genuine KKB101923 hydramount, and neither slosh when shaken.

I hope this clarifies a little

Brian

Clarifies?

Crikey no! That muddies the water completely! Thanks!

Seriously - Appreciate the answer Brian. I don't know anything about these items and I'd like to have another to compare it with.
Instinct tells me that it shouldn't go 'glug'

This part No. is KKB101914

I bought an original for my CDT off a forum member the other month ready for Jules to fit at some stage and its as solid as a rock.

Nothing sloshing about.


**Edit**

Actually after re reading my correspondence with the selling forum member it turns out that the not required one that he sent me was actually originally from DGMRS.

As mentioned solid as a rock, no sloshing.



Maybe they have a sloshing or non sloshing option on their website.

ive done a few these engine mounts, one being from Dmgr and non of them sloshed around.
As brian says, should feel solid as a rock.

I bought a new KKB101914 in May and it sloshes around too (a lot!) - it sounds half empty.

No sign of anything leaking out.

All of ours have always done this - including those sourced from XPart.
I'm guessing a change must have happened at some point if an original doesn't do it - however the mount on my ZT-T CDTi (which I believe was original) also makes the sloshing noise.
No excess vibration in the cabin etc
