Hints on Replacing 1986 190E 2.3-16 Engine Mounts

Hi, I need some hints on what is involved in replacing the engine mounts on my soon to be son's 1986 190E 2.3-16. I got real gutsy after changing the engine mounts on the 1982 240D my daughter is driving, and just bought the new mounts for the 190E today. They are liquid filled or something; much more expensive and elaborate than the 240D mounts, and the space around the engine in the car is a little more crowded on the 190E. The old ones gave up the ghost about 8 years ago, but my interest and spirit waned back then. Since joining this forum I have renewed enthusiasm and a 16 year old son with a job and some spare change he wants to spend on getting "his" car into shape. Any pointers on this job would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jim
