    hi :) ....

    in my EK4 my engine is moving a lot becoz of the Insulator there... i buy the new OEM one... but trying to change it was difficult coz far to get into-it can't find a way to access it.. and i was discouraged.....

    does anybody out there who already change it tell how he done it ? thx :)....

    its frustating to have it but not yet installed.... :confused:

    I'm about to do mine (but haven't yet)... I think you can go in from under the car. Just make sure to have the front end of the car lifted enough to get in there, and use a jack or a hoist to support the engine while you have things unbolted.

    :werd: it's gonna be a PITA, it's just difficult to maneuver tools back there, it's pretty straight forward.

    - Support and raise the motor to relieve tension on the rear mount.
    - Make sure you remove the bolt that attaches the mount to the mount bracket FIRST
    - Remove the remaining bolts for the rear mount.

    It should just fall right out after that, replace it and bolt everything back up.
