I replaced the right engine mount and the engine bracket on my 2000 9-5 SE (V6). The right mount cost $140 and the engine bracket was $67. I then replaced the transmission mount under the battery tray for $60. The labor was my own. The transmission mount was a problem in that the bolts (22 years old) needed a lot of BP Blaster top and bottom plus extra PATIENCE to avoid stripping them or snapping them off. There were two large Torx bolts and one smaller Torx screw to remove. I was able to get them out with about 30 minutes of back and forth motion and more Blaster keeping them wet. I think the bolts needed 55 ft lbs to reinstall and the transmission stud was a 77 ft lb nut - the specs will be in the WIS section on the mounts. I still have a torque rod ($35 -not an OEM) to replace, but have not gotten to it. I have not replaced the rear engine mount as it is not too bad. Once the new left and right mounts were replaced, most all the vibration disappeared.

In a shop, you'd have to figure out the published hours for the job plus any more time needed to free up rusty bolts or drilling out a broken bolt, etc.

The transmission mount only had 2 bolts and one screw in it (right side of the photo) - the smaller screw was just to the left of the front bolt. You can see the rusty holes the bolts came out of.

Good luck and take your time!
