What is a motor mount shim?

A motor mount shim is a thin, slotted piece of material, such as metal or plastic, that is used to fill the gap between the engine mount and the engine mount bracket. Motor mount shims are often used in automotive applications to help adjust the engine's position within the engine compartment.

When a motor mount shim is installed, it can change the angle and position of the engine, allowing for precise adjustments. This can be useful when trying to align the engine with other components, such as the transmission or exhaust system, or when trying to correct for any engine vibration or noise. Motor mount shims can also help to compensate for any wear or damage to the engine mount bracket or the engine mount itself. It should be noted that motor shims must be replaced as wear presents itself.

The Color Tells the Thickness

Color-coded products are available in aluminum and plastic for your convenience. Each color represents a specific shim thickness, making distinguishing between thicknesses quick and easy. With variations in shim thickness being as little as 0.00025”, differentiating by the color instead of measuring motor mount shims drastically saves time and reduces errors. Save time and money on the production floor with Artus high-quality motor shims today.
