Default Vibration problem

Took my 2007 407 2.0 HDI SW Sport to local dealer to check out severe vibration. One look under the bonnet and the mechanic said it was the engine mounting on top left of engine. He could not source a genuine peugeot replacement so he fitted a mounting sourced from local parts dealer. When I got the car back there was still a slight vibration which got worse before I got home (one hour from dealer to home). I took the car back and the mechanic told me that the replacement had split so he fitted another one. As soon as I started the engine I felt quite severe vibration. Told the mechanic who said they would source a Peugeot replacement as he thought the locally sourced part was not up to the job. I have a feeling that something else could be causing the vibration which in turn is causing the mounting to fail. Grateful if anyone can give me any clues as to what may be the cause or am I looking too deep into it.
I am in Spain and do not have many local Peugeot dealers I can turn to. Thanks in advance, Andrew

No, vibration stops when I turn the engine off. Strange question, what was on your mind?

Was thinking dual mass flywheel as when you turn engine off they shake on.

Ah yes, I understand. As it happens my clutch does make quite a racket but the vibes I have are a totally different sound. Thanks for the thought.

Are the other engine mounts still in good condition ? Could be all of them need replacing.

I have asked the mechanic to take a look at the other mountings but he gave me a "I'm the mechanic here" look so I don't know if he has. I am hoping the next trip to the garage will see the problem sorted but being in Spain I have my doubts.

Engine mounts on these do have a bit more movement than you would expect especially the gearbox end

Can you rock the engine by hand as sometimes the small bush on the lower rear mount wears you can feel the engine rocking and this in turn causes vibration in the driveshaft

Will check this out in the morning. As I have said, being in Spain has some drawbacks, especially when dealing with logic. I The Spanish in general have a wierd logic that does not seem to fit any logical pattern so I may have to lead the mechanic by the hand if I find anything wrong. Thanks again for all the help, I am sure I will win given time. Try again manana as they say here.
