I just did my clutch. I replaced the driver side tranny mount, because I sheared the bolt on the mount that connects to the subframe.

Question is, does the 8mm ALLEN bolt that connects to the tranny bracket tighten fully? I couldn't tighten it fully because the hole in the mount isnt fully threaded (forgot to check if the old mount was also loose). I used washers so the mount was solid with the bracket.

Is it really really supposed to be loose? Or is my mount defective?
