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

Dear Jim

I have a 2.3 8V, but the replacements of engine mounts should be the same. First you have to unscrew the bolt that is holding the mounts to the chasis. then you can use a 2x4 and place it beneath the oil pan, and use a Jack to slowly jack the engine up. then you should be able to take the engine mount out of its place and replace it with a new one!
