PHOTO DIY-ENGINE MOUNT REPLACEMENTS

Well, the day finally came for me, when my "Einspritzung" became a "Diesel". (106,000 miles)
Yes, the usual symptoms of "Smooth idle, until you move it into gear, then..... VIBRATION".

After performing the confirmatory "acid-test" (popping open the hood, have someone apply the service AND foot brakes, all the while pointing the car in a "SAFE" DIRECTION, have the helper gently "REV" the engine on and off, all the time looking at how much Rotational "movement" there is in the engine. You will know what "excessive" is. Mine was "Rockn' and Rolln' " SEVERAL inches up and down. YEP!! BAD ENGINE MOUNTS!


OK. TO be clear here, this is NOT the specified WIS method of mount replacement, but it IS the "STANDARD" method used, even at the dealerships.

Please consult with your Model Year/EPC, to confirm if BOTH your mounts are the same, like mine, or whether your year DOES HAVE a Right/Left numbers.

As a special note, make sure the "Points" on the mount line up with the "Notch" on the lateral side of the engine mount. This prevents the mount from "rotating".


The usual CYA stuff- I am not encouraging, nor discouraging anyone from doing this fairly "straightforward" job. DO ANY WORK AT YOUR OWN RISK, AND OF COURSE, USE INDUSTRY STANDARDS OF SAFETY, ESPECIALLY UNDER A JACK=STANDED CAR. I CLAIM ZERO EXPERTISE NOR EXPERIENCE. I am a "novice" shadetree mechanic.

Another home-run shot, G-AMG. Thanks so much!

The most stunning pic is the one of the old and new next to each other. Yikes is right!!

Take care and enjoy the ride,
Greg

Just an FYI - the job is a lot easier on the diesels. No need to mess with the compressor. Just unbolt the old mounts and install the new ones. Good write up though.

Its a good write-up yes, one point is that there is no need to remove the compressor on any of the models. Its a matter of lifting the engine in the right place.

Eric, please do tell!!
What is the trick? I couldn't see where you could squeeze the left sided mount in or out.

There is no trick, its a simple case of two guys and one with the tyre levers in the right place to move the engine(which is already jacked up) into the right postition Just takes a little thinking about, we do them every day and no problems Admittedly it does take a little wrangling but its not that difficult. But if one person tries to do it on his own-no, it wont work.
