108's and 113's have similar r&r procedure, i believe. There's got to be some info in the archives here. On a phone or would dig up some links.

A younger me (with an enviable amount of free time) commented on 108 installation, "Lifted up the diff a bit with a jack. Opened trunk - loosened 4 bolts going to frame and 1 large bolt (24mm? )going to diff. Jacked up diff a bit further so mount 'pops' up a little bit. Remove bolts, removeout old mount, pop in new mount. Allign new mount and partially screw in bolts. Dropped diff down partially to center/ seat the mount and retorque all bolts."

It will be interesting to see the results if somebody here replaces that mount. I wonder if it would increase the rear ride height a little bit.

Mine is clunking when I take off from a start. Not sure what else back there would make a noise like that. Read where that is a symptom Thanks for the DIY procedure Now to figure out the part number and source

If you end up having trouble with the part number, I could probably find it in my factory manual someplace.

It is a very simple job.
Support the rear axel.
Unbolt the center nut first.
Unbolt the four corner nuts.
Make sure that the axel is secure and does not move before removing rubber mount.
Replace the rubber mount.
Bolt every thing and your done.
Very simple.
Good Luck

P.S. use only OEM rubber. It will last longer than after market rubber. It will cost more but will net be buying a new rubber mount five years later thus spending more money on two mounts instead of one OEM mount.
Good Luck
