    I have bought Lemforder engine mountings for my W202 C230K, and intended to replace them today.

    For the life of me, I couldn't find a way to remove the right hand side (driver side) engine mount. Vehicle is RHD, and the supercharger and steering gear make it basically impossible to turn the top bolt on the mounting. The WIS actually directs to remove the complete bracket attaching the mountings to the engine. However, the bracket has 4 bolts, and one of them is basically 'hidden' between the bracket and supercharger.

    Has anyone else done this job on their RHD Kompressor? How did you get it done?
