Running into a problem with the enginemounts and what color codes they are supposed to have, and what these colors mean in therm of firmness/softness and load rating.
looking at autodocs website they have a lot of different options, with different colormarkings.

Throu EPC i looked up the stock “Engine Mounting” part numbers for a couple of the cars i have, and hopint to be able to tell what works best for what engine, and what the difference realy are.

DISCLAIMER

The mb-numbers below is taken from Clublounge-EPC, and the numbers of the enginemounts is writen down, and then, compared to the color markings that is listed at AUTODOC’s websites.
If you have information that suggest that perhaps the pink is softer than the yellow, id gladly get that info, this is just to get a somewhat idea of the firmness/softness of the different enginemounts for these vehicles.

 

Colors found

Descending order, where what i think is the strongest ones at the top

Pink

Found on the taxi om603 turbo w124, where the “normal” one had yellow, (wierdly enough also on left side on om606 124 with AC, right side got yellow, does the AC “rebound” the engine harder, and thus needing stronger mount, im conflicted weather or not this one is firmer than the yellow ones)

Yellow

Found on 300TDT s124, and Taxi 190d 2.5turbo

Found on s124 E 300D but only left AC side where the yellow one had the right side
