Rear Differential Mount is Broken on my 1997 Rav 4

Two years ago a mechanic told me that my rear differential mount was broken - hitting the floor board. He told me this was not dangerous - just annoying.



This is a car I rarely use but now considering using more. It currently has 170000 miles on it driven in the mild climate of California. Just what is involved and what should the cost range be?

Take it to a muffler shop and have them take a look at it. It may just be a matter of welding the mount back into position. If it’s that easy, $50.00 max.
