    B5 engine mount on b6 1.9 tdi

    Anyone replaced the drivers engine mount on they're b6 a4 with a b5 s4 mount, seen some febi ones on eBay for £30 as opposed to £90 for the correct part no one from tps, I only have the passenger side which has the sensor on and have read on other forums that some guys have replaced they're b6 mounts with b5 s4 mounts as they think they're slightly stiffer, I'm only looking to fit one of these as they're cheaper!

    Fairly sure they're the same across the b6/b7/b8 range, either way best to go aftermarket with the amount of mount's not holding up... maybe it's wear and tear but there's been a fair few broken (mine included) but surely you'd expect them to last the life of the car.

    All depends on what you classify as the life of a car. (I'm sure I read that audi say the life of a car is 10 years and 200K miles) on one of my B5's I replaced the mounts after 13 years & 270K, but I've seen them go on cars with less than 100K. I guess it's all down to the manufacture who made the mount and if they were cutting corners to keep the costs down, and the guy who made the mount, was it a Friday afternoon special.

    yeah mine looks original but has the purple ooze at the bottom of it!
    ive replaced the ns due to giving the fault code they give but the os doesnt have the sensor in and ive read that alot of people replace them with the 034 or b5 s4 mounts so im gonna fit the s4 mount as theyre quite cheap on ebay and theyre febi ones which are supposed to be ok.

    I've replaced mine with B5 rubber of standard A4 saloon. They fit fine.

    yup your right, I recieved it in the post this morning and went straight out to fit it, very easy to do took about ten mins to do!
    took me much longer replacing the anti roll bar links I had!
    definately feels less movement in gearstick now and when I use to rev the engine you could feel it rock the car, now it's hardly noticeable!
    just need to take it on mway now see if its done anything for my vibration issue?
