1984 300SD Motor Mount Removal

Does anyone know how to remove the 6mm motor mount hex srew that is closest to the engine? Do I have to remove another component to get this out? I can't seem to get to this one screw.
Thanks in advance.

which side are you working on. Are you talking about the ones that hold the mount to the frame?

The drivers side is the problem. Yes, it is the mount to frame nut(s).

Clunker,

I used a pivoting joint attachment on the end of the socket. Then I had two very long socket extensions that allowed me to turn the socket wrench with relative ease. I used a cheater bar. Oh, and I soaked the hell out of it with PB Blaster the night before.

I 'll try a pivoting joint again. I could not seem to even get it under the arm. If there is no component that has to be removed, I guess it's the only way.

W126 and W124 Motor mounts are completely different animals.

When I did mine I was using an allen wrench... I know, the cheap way... but it worked It took me a bit to figure out how to work it down to the spot, but I finally made it... at least on my car I had to take a metal plate off that was sitting on top of the mount underneath the arm... and I didn't have to take the shocks off... I dunno if this helps or not, but it's what I did... PM me if you want more details

on my 85, I could only get the allen to fit also. This is the top side, drivers side. It is slow, but will get you there.

Thanks.
