Yeah, seems like it's my turn. 239,000km and i'm getting the rumble under load. It never rains but it pours.

Do you suspect the bearing or just the bracket? The bracket fairly easy to fix.

I haven't looked yet. So far the rumble is only under higher torque. Smooth acceleration is fine.
Can you better describe the rumble? Mine is making a kind of "chittering" sound under load when cold. It seems to mostly go away once warmed up. I haven't had time to crawl underneath, but it sounds like it is coming from under the center console area.
Over winter there was a noise when cold, but the rumble is there when it's warm. I need to crawl under and look to see if I can see anything. I doubt I can fix this myself.
And the car is undriveable.

Get it fixed before it fails.
It's in the shop. I failed on the way to work. I didn't even get a change to crawl under.

It's only money, right?
