Thank you for that information. However, my friend picked up his car and drove it home. He is quite happy with it. If he has any more idle issues, I will forward this info to him. Thanks again, Rich

I just removed one today to replace a 4 spd, and yes, it should come right out. Worst case is you will have to pull it with pliers on the part that fits into the hole (not the cable!).

It's about a 5" long allen head bolt. The poured rubber barely allows a long 10mm allen key to fit through. The 1/2" spacer plate that the mount sits on has about a 3/4" hole in it for the allen key...

The mounts have held up incredibly well. When I had the sub frame out to modify it to make room for the A/C compressor, the mounts looked as good as new. I can't speak to the shore value, or anything...

Well, all I know is the car now idles, and does not stall at a stop. It is clear to me that the flap was too far closed, so I adjusted it to be a little more open. That clearly solved the problem.

Replacing crankshaft-OM616 240D

It is not very loud at all. The video sounds about the same in person. I suppose one could delete the mufflers, and it would sound pretty good.

I don't think they are, as the 617 turbo has a ratcheting piston, the N/A tensioner is just oil pressured. It is possible that either one will work on either engine, I am not willing to try it.
