I'll order these the second they are available.

Robert if we got a group buy together and sold a bunch could this make it close to the front of the list?

So I may try the e39 540i engine mounts, they are about 5inches from tip of post to post and hydraulic. They support a fully dressed m52 that weighs in at about 390 lbs.

So my 200tdi is coming out and i would definitely be interested in the Mercedes motor mounts. Any leads? Part numbers?

These guys look similar and are pretty inexpensive:

Any reason why these wouldn't work?

They were about 3/4 of an inch to tall to fit the stock mounts

Do they not also need to be installed horizontally only?

I will be making my own mounts, frame and engine side, for my 2.8 TGV. I read horizontal only somewhere on here also.

I only mention it, because I'm not sure that Mr. Solis realizes this will require a complete custom fabrication of the complete mounting system.

I replaced all 4 mounts (2 engine, 2 tranny) with Bearmach mounts. They can be squeezed by hand and are obviously softer. The vibrations from my 200tdi went away almost completely. It has made a huge difference. The vibes before would shake the dash, hood, and generally the whole truck. I hated it. Now it feels like a brand new car. It's so smooth. Highly recommend the bearmach mounts. Same size as the hard mounts that were on previously. The original mounts were hard as rocks. Don't know the manufacturer of them but they were terribly hard.

If there were even softer or more effective mounts I would try them, like these apparently mythical Mercedes hydraulic mounts. Reducing the vibes has made such a huge improvement to the driving enjoyment. If it was smoother it would be like a luxury car and not a defender but I really enjoy the more quiet cabin and would swap my already softer rubber for the hydraulic filled stuff if it made a difference. Until then, install the Bearmach rubber. HUGE improvement.

Cheers.

These Bearmach's have been the go to for years by these guys.

There's plenty of misinformation swirling around re 200 mounts. Nice to hear some real life experience. I mistakenly bought cheap aftermarket mounts and learned the hard way. Then I bought princely genuine mounts. They made a little difference but there's plenty room for improvement. Bearmach's sounds like the real ticket.

The funny part is the Bearmach's are cheap mounts. I paid $5 a piece for them. Such a PITA install. I only managed to get 1 of the 4 in (the "easy" RH engine mount), and gave up for another day.

Do you have a floor jack? The rear mounts in particular take like 10 minutes.

The transmission mounts? How?

You have to take off the lower center bolt, easy, then there are 4 bolts per mount on the upper to get it off the transmission so that you can change the mount out off the car. When I jack the tranny up it hits the tunnel before going high enough to get a wrench in to get 1 or 2 of the 4 bolts off. So then you have to drop the metal chassis bracket. That is where I gave up for another day. I spent probably 1.5 hours to get to that point.

The LH mount on a LHD same thing. I was having a really really hard time jacking the engine up high enough to be able to get the mount out.

The RH side jacking it up after removing the intercooler piping and fan guard was doable but still a seriously tight fit. Getting access to the mount on that side was the easy part, but getting the engine up high enough to allow removal was tough.

Learn me. Please.

There should be enough room to jack and remove all four mounts without removing anything on the chassis side. Do you have a mismatch of engine/gearbox and transmission tunnel?

I would love for someone to show me how to get 1 of the 4 tranny mount upper bolts out (per side). There isn't room to get anything in there. I have all sorts of wrenches and sockets and swivels. IIRC 2 or 3 of the bolts are doable (and I had them loose), but there is 1 per side that just wasn't happening. I wish I had a picture.

Maybe take a picture. I had my t. case out a few months ago and can't recall any problems with the mount bolts. I'll try and remember to look later.
