Was under the car today and discovered that both my engine mount bolts had worked themselves loose. )They are indicated by the red arrows.) I removed them, put some blue thread locker on, and torqued them to 40 ft lbs per my Haynes manual. I was curious if anyone else has experienced this? If so, this maybe something to be aware to check periodically for EA81 owners.

One mount had 2 bolts that were lose and the passages side had one bolt missing and the other lose. Found out when I pulled the motor yesterday to do a re seal on the old girl
