    engine mount

    hi guys just a quick question please, i had a scan done on my car, and is showed up a fault with the engine mount, now as far as i am aware there are 2 engine mounts 1 with the sensor and 1 without, do i have to get both of them chaged? as i cant feel anything wrong with the engine mounts? but soon i will get the engine mount changed the 1 with the sensor, do you think i should change both or just the one with the fault? and also how easy or hard is this job? and any idea what the costs might be?

    thank guys

    The passenger side one has the solenoid. Its about 70-80 quid.

    Do you have any issues or is it just a code being thrown?

    it may just be a snaped wier you guys have i had this code and thats all it was re did it all is fine no code at all it works some thing like this on tick over there is a pin kinda thing that pushes into the engine mount and heats it up so as to make it softer to take some of the vibrashon out then when you drive off it pulls the pin out the mount gose cold and hardens back up

    the drivers side normally goes on the 2.5TDI and they are a bit of a pain to do, a balancing act with jacks and front bumper off if i remember reading about it rightly.

    depends on where you are mate and what engine you have, all i know is the 2.5TDI will cost you about £100 each new from main dealer, there is a member here who lives in north London who can give you a good price, Iv not used him yet but he does have a good rep with the other lads and he is on my list of jobs to be done to my car soon, so send him a PM mate,
