Hmm ... it would best to do it on your off days.

On average it has taken us around 3-4 hours to do one.

Probably mainly because we keep chatting lol.

General Instructions.
The positions of the engine mounting and the engine roll restrictor are described looking from the transmission toward the engine.
If necessary, use special tool 412-108 to remove coolant and ventilation hoses.
Due to special model variants, some steps do not apply to all vehicles. These are clearly marked in the text.
If necessary, cut the cable ties and install new cable ties on installation.
