Re: changing engine mounts on S3 spider
If your car has carbs fitted, you may be slightly better off than if you had injection. Count your knuckles before you start and compare notes with when you finish.....
I recently put my engine back in, so the job for me was perhaps easier, but to get under the carb/injection area to the offside mount is much easier with the radiator out of the way (If it's time to replace the coolant, it's not that much more of a job!).
One last thing: The height of the engine may frighten you, particularly if the bonnet has been removed, as mine had, when the mounts have been replaced. It's only at this point that you realise how good the double curvature of the bonnet is because everything misses as it should!
