While taking out the water pump on my '97 CSE due to a leak I notice that my front engine mount is totally collapsed. The rubber is in shreds and the engine is resting on the subframe. So it looks like I have a "while in there" additional project to deal with. Eeuroparts has an engine mount kit with hydraulic mounts at a good price. They are ProParts brand but made in Germany and Sweden so hopefully OK, plus Febi inserts for the upper dogbone.
There doesn't seem to be a lot of info around on doing this job, probably because it's really straightforward. Unbolting the upper dogbone mount and lifting up the engine is simple enough but anything special to look out for?
