- 2004 Jetta GLS TDI PD sedan, Platinum Grey
I own a 2004 VW Jetta TDI sedan, 5-speed manual, BEW engine code. I have 343,000 miles on the car and I am the original owner. In May I had my original motor mounts replaced (engine, transmission and dog bone mounts). I have driven 1700 miles since the mounts were replaced. My mechanic used mounts from manufacturer SKP. With the new mounts, I am experiencing significantly more vibration compared to the original mounts, especially at idle. I wonder why would there be more vibration than with the original mounts? It's not what I was expecting. I looked at the engine mount on the passenger side -- it looks like they used new bolts which is what you are supposed to do. I didn't have a chance to look at the bolts for the transmission or dog bone mounts yet.
