    Motor mount failure on 2013 S6

    Just brought in my 2013 S6 for 35k mile maintenance and the mechanic discovered that my mounts needed replacing. Problem is that I bought an extended warranty through Endurance in May but the adjuster came and determined through the ecu that it was damaged/leaking in March... how easy of a diy is this or is it ok to just drive it without replacing them right away? Just need some options cause this job is costing an arm and a leg when I literally just bought an extended warranty for problems like this 🤦🏻*♂️

    Get use to it!! Lol, these Audi motor mounts go all all the time no matter what model. I have a 2012 a7 and have replaced both sides maybe 3 times with less then 50k miles, a decent shop will change them out for less then 400 bucks, sometimes you just have to bite the bullet my friend.

    I wish it was 400! The shop is charging me about 1600 for parts and labor.

    I thought S6 mounts were around $600/ea? Either way I think they are at least twice as expensive as A7 mounts.

    88K on my 2012 A6 and they have never given me any issue, no codes, never replaced. However, As preventative maintenance, I am installing the 034 Density line mounts since I will be dropping the subframe for a test pipe install. I'm Not sure if 034 offers these for the S6 but it may worth looking into as an upgrade and to save $.

    72k miles here and have replaced the mounts twice (once it's driver side only, other times are both sides).
    Also, it never throw any codes or anything, car was in for service and dealer noticed and replaced under warranty.

    That's about right for each S6 active motor mount: https://genuineaudiparts.com/parts/2...E&group=MOUNTS

    4H0199256T - FRONT MOUNT S6 right
    4H0199255T - FRONT MOUNT S6; Left

    MSRP = $628.18, Online Price = $467.37

    Just finished up 35k maintenance under audi care on my 2015 S6 as well (cars only at 26k today) - my service advisor did a great job in identifying any issues and replacing which included the motor mounts. The invoice noted a bunch of customer statements (which i didnt make) for each diagnosis. Thought i would share in case anyone needed to use at their dealership to get something looked at:

    Replaced Transmission Pan Gasket - "Customer states oil leaking from under the engine area, oil burning smell from front of car when engine is warm"

    Replaced Engine Mounts - "Customer states engine runs rough at idle, front end of car vibrates at idle" (this one I did ask him based on the RPM test noted in forums)

    Replace Lower Control Arm Links - "Customer states in and out of driveways, front end suspension clunks and makes a popping sound when wheels are turned"

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks for all the advice and input guys! I just decided to get the work done... the shop is charging me 620 for each side and 820 for the labor which totals a bit over 2k just figure I have to bite the bullet this time but any other major work will be done under warranty at least

    It's frustrating seeing all this complexity over what should be a simple motor mount. All because of 4-cyl mode that saves what, maybe 0.1 mpg? No way in hell the minuscule amount of fuel saved is worth it.

    To all the repetitive failure posters: Do you use your engine start/stop feature often?

    I am trying to correlate if the high failure rate can be due to the frequent cranking during these on/off cycles.

    Most likely due to 4 cylinder mode which happens quite often.

    Wow, I'm surprised the adjuster actually scanned the car for fault codes.
    Word of advice... get an OBDEleven or VagCom cable and scan/delete any old codes, so if they reappear now, it'll be stamped with today's date before you engage your warranty company for future claims :)
