Transmission mounts - need some help

I recently replaced my motor mounts, once that was done there was a vibration coming from the engine that wasn't there before, I had assumed that because the mounts were fixed the transmission mounts were now in need of replacement and taking all the vibration thus causing more vibration than normal.
I bought a transmission mount, front upper for 24.99 with hopes that the more expensive mount was fine.
I got the mount, tore the car apart and for the life of me I can't find the mount. I did however find the lower more expensive mount and it's shot so there is that.
for our car, are there two mounts? I also found a couple other mounts that I have no idea what they are for but seem to be in need of replacement.
Any help would be appreciated.

Iíve searched the car over and over, the mount that I purchased does not go on my car, Iím 100% certain. However, I did find the transmission mount thatís bad. I found a replacement at parts geek for 309 and a 15.00 coupon with free shipping and no tax made it 294.00
here is the old busted mount, makes sense that I was feeling a large vibration.

Mine is also busted, unfortunately it's an expensive endeavor to replace engine mounts on our cars. I also ordered a transmission mount from Amayama.com I paid about 260$ Canadian (195 USD) including shipping, mount, bunch of bolts. Car has about 140k miles.

It's a Honda mount thing. I'm convinced Honda can't design mounts if their lives depended on it.

Against my better judgement I'm taking the car to the dealership to have her looked at and help to determine what is wrong. After replacing all the mounts in the car (3 motor and 1 transmission) I'm still getting a vibration at a stop while in gear. I can't figure it out. I made sure the vacuum lines were hooked up, made sure the mounts were bolted on properly... just no idea. So for 90.00 hopefully they can tell me what is wrong and God willing it's cheap.

Please let us know the outcome. I'm also experiencing severe vibration at idle after replacing the rear motor mount. The vibrations get really bad between when the speedometer hit 15mph all the way to 30mph, once you pass the 30mph range, the vibrations subside and the car feels good as new. I first replaced the front and side engine mounts last month and I saw a big improvement in the car and didn't experience any vibrations. It was until last week that i finally had the time to replaced the rear engine mount and that's when the vibration started. It was mention on some post that the vibrations might eventually stop after driving the car for a while, since it might be that the engine mounts are new and stiff, but I don't know if that is true or not. On one hand the vibration in idle is kind of annoying for this type of car, but on the other hand, it almost give you that feeling of a muscle car with a big Hemi engine under the hood.

update: Took the car to the dealer and they found that the passenger mount was broken, yes the new one I installed. I got a hold of mount_expert on eBay and they promptly refunded my money with just a picture of the broken mount (great service) I did opt to buy the OEM mount. I installed it myself and still am having the vibrations at a stop light or stop sign or anywhere I'm stopped with the car in gear.
I'm also feeling the vibrations around 60 mph. I decided to do a little test - I put the car in manual and around 60 I stayed in 4th and got zero vibration, put it in 5th and the vibrations came back. Not sure what that means but it's something. I'm going to take the back to the dealer next week to have it looked at again, I'm at a total loss. They double checked all my work and all of it was perfect, now I wait, which I'm not good at doing.

I'll update again next week.

Alright... I'm losing my mind.
Recap:
I replaced all my motor mounts and transmission mount (we only have one - that the dealer is saying and that I can find). I was still getting vibrations in gear at a stop and low RPM's.
The passenger mount broke, I replaced it with OEM - still vibrations
Dealer said the front mount was moving too much, I replaced the front and rear mount with XLR8 mounts. Still getting vibrations. When I say vibrations it's annoying, you can feel it through the whole car, it's not a cool horsepower vibration either.
I haven't checked the transmission mount yet (the new one to see if it's damaged somehow).

With all that, what am I missing - there has to be a reason that I'm getting these vibrations, an explainable reason and a fixable reason.

Any thoughts or input would be wonderful.

It's the transmission mount, the same one you replaced. I know it's confusing as the pictures are different.

Ahh okay, thanks I was hoping I had missed something and was going to finally fix the damn vibrations.

I'm experiencing those same low RPM vibrations as you after I swapped my engine and replaced all except the transmission mount. I hoped you figured out what it was! Still no luck?

Well, I ordered the XLER8 front and rear mount, still a lot of vibration. I bit the bullet and bought OEM front and rear mounts, now I'll have all OEM mounts. They should be in my possession on Monday the 17th and I'll install them. Hopefully this fixes it, other wise I'm going to go crazy.

You would get extra vibration with the XLR8 mounts since they use a stiffer material. Mine are all OEM and I've got this annoying vibration. My only thought at this point is that maybe the bolt that connects the motor to the mount on each point is too tight and not allowing the slightest movement of the motor, but that seems really dumb to me. I also installed RV6 high flow cats, but you didn't so I'm lead to believe it is a mount issue and not an exhaust note issue...

I just bought this with the 5% off. Looks like an easy replacement accoeding to Youtube..I wish someone would make a DIY for the rear engine mount. I have the part but don't not confident I can do it because of the limited space.

Remove the strut brace to get better access, remove the top bracket, use either wobble extensions or wobble sockets. Wobble sockets are the better option. You need 1-2' of extension and a breaker bar to get the 4 bolts that hold the to the subframe. The main bolt is very tedious to remove and replace due to an absolute lack of space behind the mount. Just use a 14mm wrench and be prepared to lay on the motor for a few minutes for that one. It's not terrible to replace but it's very tedious. Don't forget to support the motor slightly to get the weight off the mount.

Thank you! This definitely helps!
