Shyne, I took my 1990 300E to the dealer to check on cost of replacing all four rear subframe mounts. It took me about 5 minutes of arguing to convince these two yo-yo Mercedes certified mechanics that a 300E actually had subframe mounts. Then they couldn't understand why I wanted them replaced. When I finally got them focused on why I was there, which was to get a quote, one said that it would probably take several hours to do the job. Needless to say, I thanked them and went home without ever asking that hourly rate.
Must be that I'm missing something. I looked at mine again today and it just didn't look to be that difficult. Can anyone explain what's required to drop the subframe?
