    I believe that I have a broken motor mount in my 2001 Prius, but to be sure I'm wondering if anyone has an exploded view of the engine that lists all of the mounts as I am unsure of how many there may be since there are essentially two motors.

    Also, has anyone replaced the motor mounts and was it anymore difficult than a standard vehicle?

    Try https://parts.olathetoyota.com/v-2001-toyota-prius--base--1-5l-l4-electric-gas/engine--engine-and-trans-mounting , but that just shows the mounts in isolation, not where they are on the car.

    The Prius has one gasoline engine and two electric motors, BUT the two electric motors live inside a housing that looks a lot like the transmission on a non-hybrid front-wheel-drive car. The whole assembly of engine and transmission attaches to the body of the car in the same was as most other front-wheel-drive cars.

    I've never had to swap one, so I don't know how hard they are to do.
