Volvo S80 3.2 Right Eng Mounts Replaced 125k

Post by Skymongrel »

I'm still tackling some of the easy Volvo S80 repairs and have replaced the Upper Right Torque Rod Engine mount and Right Eng Mount. I didn't have a lot of vibration and noise except that dealer told me I needed new wheel bearing and I thought I'd eliminate any other potential noise makers before tackling that.

On inspection my Upper Right Torque Rod Mount had a significant crack in the rubber bushing and the Engine mount below it was considerably compressed. As I believed these were both original I went ahead and replaced them. I'm sharing some observations and pictures.

The Right Engine Mount was considerably compressed and once removed the rubber membrane at it's bottom was intact but made a "squishy" sound when manipulated by my fingers. I also could hear air escaping when pushing it however there was no sign of oil leakage except for a few drops when I squeezed it firmly.

Install was straight forward. And the pictures follow. Of course they are out of order...sorry.

One tip: I had to jack engine up more than I thought I'd have too in order for the top engine mount bolt hole to align with the top mounting plate above.
