I am the proud new owner of a 1999 SLK 230 as of late Friday. Iv'e searched many forums and find this one to be the most informative and user friendly.

My R170 vibrates in reverse and I was told by a mechanic that bad engine mounts are the culprits. Which mount would more than likely cause vibration in reverse only? Thanks

Welcome from New Hampshire

If your sure its the mount it would be better to replace both at the same time.

If this looks disjointed (or you think you're seeing double), it's because I merged both of the OP's threads. So it's all here now.

And welcome from Atlanta...

Welcome from Minnesota, I have also found this site to be very informative. It was a major reason behind me purchasing my SLK350.
