    You could try a radiator repair shop. If your TMIC is stock they are pretty cheap to buy second hand. I have two spare CX7 TMIC's now. They aren't exactly the same as the Gen2 3 though.

    Not sure man, i had a problem with my car where i blew my fuel line and lost alot of power, took it to my merchanic got it fixed after 700dollars, then i called him up saying im missing 6psi of power, and explained that my car was cutting out etc, anyways i booked to get it checked out on friday for tomorrow (monday) but on saturday i saw that hole and felt the air pressure leaking out on a cold start..

    also i dont want to take it back to my merchanic because they keep changing there price when i go to pay, exampled, my repair was quoted estimate of 500 at the start, then calls me back up after few hours saying it will cost 630 i said yeah go ahead.. went to pay for in 2 days later when car was ready he goes 680dollars...

    Either get a second hand one or upgrade man, don't waste time and money fixing it. You will no doubt upgrade at some point so buy aftermarket now lol

    haha my top mount is already a aftermarket, just don't know what brand coz previous owner had changed it. no point going second hand back to factory mount, either i get it fixed or buy another one.
