    My E280 has only a single bush attaching the diff (?) to the chassis cross member, even though there is a pair (left and right) of attachment points.
    Does this matter?
    Picture included, looking from rear of vehicle. View is upwards from under the fuel tank.

    It looks strange but the EPC only lists one bush.
    I just looked at my C180 of similar vintage and it has two.....but the EPC for that lists two bushes.
    So your diff is correctly mounted.

    Thanks Alec. That's reassuring!
