suspected drivetrain noise fixed

Post by deltajets » Sat Jan 19, 2019 11:08 am

For awhile now my 2008 xc90 had what I thought was a drivetrain noise that was getting progressively worse. It only made the noise with the car in gear and would change with engine load and speed ( kind of sounded like brake rotors getting turned) Well it turned out to be a bad engine mount, the upper torque arm to be exact. Changed out in about 15 min, noise gone! I will be changing out all the mounts shortly due to the fact they all work together. I thought it was an angle gear noise to be sure, never happier to be wrong.

Thanks for the update! Good to use the right brand for these, I think Hutchinson were making them for Volvo
