    I didn't get any steering vibration. Only I felt there was little bit roughness for the engine sound which was, I think, due to the engine on the loose or cracked mount.
    See the moment the engine unit can vibrate and it act like a coupled system and if everything is in favour it can oscillate abnormal way, which might have caused this.
    I am not a rash driver. So the question of pressure on the mount point due to torque of engine doesn't arise. Also my car hasn't fallen in a pot hole that can break the mount.

    In the figure you can see screws which had broken. Those screws are the one use to fix it to engine. They didn't allow me to see and watch the work as a service policy. So I am not able to get more photographs. The honda civic link that I posted in my previous post will give more clear picture of the mounts.

    these days i'm also feeling the car is not smooth while at high and low speeds especially the engine sound,sounds like angry man :)
    i have found the most of the sound is created by the Airfilter bracket written Multijet as below:-

    dont know whether its a common thing of vibrating/shaking,when i press it hard it goes silent.
    Anyother MJD owners can provide your inputs on this ?

    How often you clean the air filter? You may get a slight improve if it is clean

    sun,
    cleaning of the air filter(its hardly about 250grams) should not be the problem for the vibration/shaking of this bracket,the air filter sits within this very securedly.

    Every month i do it

    I am waiting for 3rd service. After the engine-mount incident I am not happy with car as the ride smoothness has decreased. At low speeds response of engine is not linear. I have no idea what is the reason. Not getting time to show the vehicle again due tight schedule at work place. Will update after resolving it.
