I want to replace the motor mounts in my E320 94 and want to know how hard is to change them? also want to replace the trans mount too.
do you recomend the factory mounts or any aftermarket will work?
Thanks in advance

Generally the pass. side isn't too bad, thanks to the clearance around the bolt. Driver's side is a different story, there's not much room to get any real leverage on the bolt. If you can find a 17mm box end wrench with one end cut/ground off, that's the best tool I've seen for getting the top bolts off. Get a strong crowbar/pipe, find a good piece of structural steel to leverage against, and use that on the bolts.

(Be careful what you use as a fulcrum...!)

As for the bottom bolts, they're not as bad. Just be real careful you don't round out the allen bolts. Put a scrap of paper towel on the allen head to help take up slack space and give it more bite.

The above is good advice, but you will also need a floor jack and a piece of 2 X 12 or something to distribute the load on the oil pan while raising the engine and transmission.

Good luck,

The driver side is a piece of cake if you take the mount bracket off the engine block as a unit with the mount still attached....

I wouldn't even think of anything but OEM ... and the best of them...
The difference in price and performance, never mind the labor,
[ even if you do it yuourself for free], is not worth the difference...
