Anyone tried to change the right engine support (p/n 51813198)?

Is it an easy task or do the engine need to be supported from below during the exchange?

Any recommendation for the new part?
There are two different part numbers (50515482 and 51813198) so I assume there must be a different in stiffness to absorb the higher torque from the TB170 engine

According to ePer, correct right pad for the QV should be 5181 3198. Change of an engine support pad is quite easy to do. First remove air filter housing/cabinet (you get a lot more space), then lift the engine a bit under the oil pan with a hydraulic jack and release engine support bolts.

I have just been out and removed to airfilter to have a better look.
It seems fairly easy to exchange the engine support when as you say lift the engine with a hydrallic jack.

I can see that the bolts are the torx type and I don't have any inverted torx sockets in my toolbox :grumpy:
What torx size are the bolts on the engine side and what torx size are the bolts on the chassis side?
