Well it was a mount of sorts so not exactly that far off the mark.

It was a bolt or stud for an oil filter which snapped and caused an oil leak from the gearbox. The original was made from titanium. Now they have to replace them with good old fashioned steel. I know weight saving is crucial but do they really need to go so far? I bet the steel bolt is a hell of a lot cheaper as well.
