I need to know if the Rear Engine Mount is the same as the Transmission Mount? Please advise. Thanks.

While some may refer to it as the rear engine mount, it's actually the transmission mount that they are talking about. Both terms are interchangeable and refer to the same thing. ~$50 MSRP part.

The W126 engine itself is held in place by two mounts in the front (left & right) and is additionally supported by an engine shock. The rear engine mount or transmission mount actually holds the tail of the transmission in place.

Thanks. I thought it was the same thing, just making sure. I'm getting all 3 changed on Monday morning. The mechanic is going to charge me $180. to do all 3 mounts.
