I will look deeper but, I am changing my motor mount on a 98 V70 tomorrow the one near the crank. Looks easy enough. When putting the new one in, should I bolt the motor side first and jockey the thing so I can put in the frame mount bolts or do it the other way around. I'll be jacking the motor up carefully and will have a second pair of hands to help. I had something saved on my other computer, but it is long dead.

Motor did need to be lifted qute a bit to line stuff up but truthfully, this was only marginally harder than changing a tire. Good opportunity to check under the car too. The mount I bought came with some type of aluminum spacer but it wasn't needed. Engine buzziness is gone. Car feels great. Next up is fixing the P0243 and replacing some vac lines. Things got 165K, I honestly think 250 isn't out of the question. I'm changing the tranny fluid next weekend but even the stuff in there now doesn't look or smell bad. Whoever owned this car took care of it.

The Febi mount costs $39.85 on FCP Euro. Where is the saving?? I would rather spend $20 more than spend another hour under my car any day. Just my 2 cents...
