Just done the sensor gel pad today was a 10min job at best, you can buy them online. Worth a try first as a few pounds to see if it fixes it. You've just got to remove the cover unclip clean off the old gel pad from the sensor and windscreen fit the new pad to the sensor and put back in place I think the gel pad cooks over time as when i took it off was like jelly.

That is the solenoid bypass. However, in my case the mounts are now 250,000klms old and they will have compressed. They will need replacing.

Usually if you have a cracked torque support mount, the engine mounts have compressed to allow to much play.

Received new gel pad and still no luck unfortunately. New sensor hopefully will fix the issue.

Looking closer I think bypass is already fitted, and vibration isn't unbearable yet so new mounts can wait.
