Hi all. 

Can anybody confirm with me in total how many engine mount and gearbox mounting does W204 have ah? Is C180 should you require. 

I was told differently by different workshops. So decided to check with you all first. 

Assume A and B and C and D

Workshop A say got 3 engine mount and 1 gearbox mount. 

Workshop B say got 3 engine mount and 2 gearbox mount. 

Workshop C say got 2 engine mount and 2 gearbox mount. 

Workshop D say got 2 engine mount and 1 gearbox mount.

All of them making me confuse. Anybody can help to confirm with me each mount got how many? 

Many thanks! 😁

 

Edit: workshop D said 2 engine mount instead of 3 as per A says.

wah... none of the workshop is correct.

W204 have 2 engine mounting and 1 gearbox mounting.

When you hoist up the car, you can see all the 3 mountings.

Can ask where you guys did your change of mounting? Contemplating a change, my mileage is close to 80k now.

C&C quoted me $1000 during service clinic.

Hi I am having mine done at MBM.  c&c quoted me SGD1,200 for Engine and Gearbox mount.  MBM quote much less and you can talk to Chloe.

Btw when should we replace this? I was also told by c&c to replace tumble flap for intake manifold - $3500 (c&c price) and a whole long list of other parts. 

These are still functioning but replacement is recommeneded due to wear and tear :(  Total damage if I fix at c&c is well above SGD11k

I am doing these at MBM.  My vehicle mileage is close to 80k km.  So when do we usually replace these items? Or can we wait abit longer?

Tks for the guidance bros.

Original and lemfoerder both have normal and heavy duty type.

normal GB mount and the heavy duty type is different part number.

Do replace both engine mounting and 1 x gear mounting when u feel the vibration. I left it thinking wont hurt much until I replaced it recently paying not just on the mounting but also the arm that holds the engine mounting as well. Total damage <$1.5k instead of below $900 at a workshop.

Don't recommend C&C as these are wear n tear.

Normally when engine starts you won't feel vibration on your steering wheel. But when you feel it better have it check especially if your ride is more than 3 yr.

One mech said the suspension is okay but it's mounting needs to be changed.

Finally changed out 2x engine and 1x GB mounting last week on my 7G. the middle section of the engine mounts is completely sunk in, refer to picture.

Symptom is vibration on the steering wheel. When the aircon is turned on, the vibration is stronger.
