    Hi Guys,

    Front passenger side engine mount is showing as intermittent in VCDS as 35-10. Its the lower hydraulic mount, anybody experienced the intermittent value and fixed this?

    I have been quoted for replacement £245 fitted. Does this price seem reasonable from an independent VW specialist?

    Thanks

    Thanks for replying Simon, so its just a case of taking the lower engine cover off and checking wiring for breaks? Did you also check the connector and clean it with WD40 or similar?

    Sorry to be a pain and ask another Q but from the mount where do the wires go, think theyre blue and red?

    Anybody who needs this specific part for a A4 1.9tdi AWX, I rang Audi its £106. £140 did sound like a lot for labour as it doesnt seem like it should take 2-3 hours to do.

    Hi Simon, actually Im not to far away so if I needed the part that would be a great help. Will try clean as suggested first and take it from there. Cheers :)

    Shouldve chatted to you about the CCM I just bought that cost me £280 (facepalm!)

    I have now gotten a quote from a garage I use sometimes and they said about an hour labour which seems more reasonable to me, does anyone know if theyre any more of a pain to fit than a regular solid mount?

    i recently changed mine as it had sheared clean in half. £105 for the part and an hour of my time. Easy job to do yourself, i did mine on axle stands and used a jack to support the engine while i changed it

    Awesome, could you do me a step by step, like do I need to loosen top mounts etc. or just that one mount?

    @ Swarcup...Thats a very popular question, if you get time to do it then I'll link it into the DIY Guides sticky.

    yes no problem will do one, although it will be for the 2,5tdi and cant vouch that other models will be the same. should be similar though
