    you have the jist of it right, jack the car up, place a suport under the engine with a bit of wood, undo the top nut, and undo the engine mount bracket from below and take the 2 bits out as one bit, put the new engine mount bolted to the bracket and stick it all back together, just dont rush things,

    Buy-it mate, at that price is a steal. I have changed 2 mounts on a 55 reg b7 a4 v6 tdi estate and both engine mounts were about 250 quid, the driver side one was 154 quid on it's own. As far as i know they are identical to the ones fitted on the b6... yet dearer !
    FOR SALE:

    Would you recommend changing both as I didn't get a fault up on the other mount.
