Early Radiator Mounting Bushes

Postby Ballard » Thu Sep 20, 2018 10:05 pm

I would like some new radiator bushes but the only ones I can find seem to be the later cheese cake variety.

My car is 1990 vin 629438 and has an upper radiator mounting bracket with 4 small black rubber bushes rather than two large sponge like orange ones, as found on later cars. Unfortunately, in the parts listings only the later upper mounting brackets are shown, regardless of vin.

Anyone know if the small black rubber early bushes can still be found?

I think all the aftermarket ones (URO etc) are rubber, I got mine from Rock Auto but I'm sure you can get them from many places online - pretty in-demand items I should think.

Thanks guys, the trouble is those bushes are for the later car. My upper radiator mounting panel has 4 small bushes, not 2 large ones. I was wondering if the small bushes are still available somewhere?

They are the right part numbers, the later car is MNA4241AB. The other two upper bushes are for the condenser.

And here is the link. They should be available from many outlets.

Condenser bushes are upper CBC1448 now superseded by C2C16681, and lower CBC1788, two of each required.

I've previously looked at that on jcp website but the diagram and the pictures of those parts I found on sng and eBay and elsewhere all appear to be different from what is on my car. They're pretty cheap so I may have to order one to see if it is actually what I need despite appearances.

I've just had a closer look at the diagram and compared it with my actual car and I can see what you mean now.

It's the condenser bushes I'm talking about. Thanks very much for clearing that up donkeyotty, much appreciated.
