Hi All,

My lower engine mount is totally gone. I've bought all new engine mounts. Do you think it's a realistic option to self install these? Or should I get the garage to do it?

Cheers,

Rich

Rich,
this is the page whre Quasimotors suggests to DIY. But Quasi suggests to DOY a lot of thigs, so I don't know if that really counts.

Maybe looking at the procedure can helpo you to decide. Reading it I figured out a 4-5hours job, in a garage that is not professionally tooled and by one who isn't a pro. Seems like a lift wouold improve a lot the woking conditions, allowing to get under the car without having to crawl.

Sorry but I have no direct experience on this.

Hi,

I've done both of the lower engine mounts and neither was that difficult. The hydraulic one was a bit messy 'cause it was on a non turbo 9000 so it is directly below the oil filter so gets fairly cr*ppy over time. The gearbox end one was quite straightforward, I seem to remember that one of the bolts is a little awkward to get at but a jack and some big blocks of wood were sufficient to take the weight while the mounts were off.
