Cannot do a search at the moment (forum search no working), so will ask the question?

Are engine mounts on a C Class W203 220cdi prone to failure? Car is 45000 miles and 7 years in age.

Since Friday Ive got a distinct vibration, engine related, akin to the ML270 when its mountings failed. Speaking with an indie sometime back, he mentioned that the airconditioner clutch is prone to ceasure on a 270 engine and it feels like engine mount failure, so hence the question:- Engine mounts, airconditioner clutch or other?

With engine related item the roughness would be there all of the time and engine mounts would be there when pulling

Thank-you for the information, allowed me to return back (300 miles) without worry. Aircon works fine on/off, vibrations through the range and gear change a little clunky, so as you advised, engine mounts.

Well... wonder if they have an Indy in Stuttgart :confused: ... loathed to go back to Daimler AG and no kit here to do the job myself!
