The 30680770 goes bad all the times, in fact it is not a proper engine mount, it only limits the engine movement upon acceleration. I suppose yours is cracked by now

The 30680750 has about the same role but a little less important. Even when the rubber is cracked, it still limits the movement, just may cause more vibrations.

There is another engine mount that sometimes can go bad, not sure the condition of yours, thought www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4nvecLGeOU https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/volvo- ... 90-8624757

There are two more mounts, the bigger ones, that rarely go bad (really not worth replacing if they are still good)

List of parts/name to verify for me

Post by Mr. Detail » Sat Jul 06, 2019 1:28 pm

Heh guys, I won't bother you again but I wanted to be sure I buy the correct part(s) for repair. The following a list that my mechanic wrote down on paper. Please verify for me that I understand which part(s) he is speaking of. Just a "Y" or "N" will work.

A) Upper Motor Mount > https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/volvo- ... t-30680770
B) Transmisson Mount > ?? Couldn't find it.
C) Front Sway Bar Links > https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/volvo- ... -xc70-xc90
D) Lower Control Arm Bushings > https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/volvo- ... -9443882my
https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/volvo- ... -8630604my
(He did not say which or all lower control arm bushings to replace. Not sure how many of these there are.)

Thanks much!

Yes, it will fit.

B) Transmisson Mount > ?? Couldn't find it.

Here it is:

https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/volvo- ... 0-30680750

C) Front Sway Bar Links > https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/volvo- ... -xc70-xc90

Yes, they will fit, but I would get these higher quality sway bar links:

D1) Lower Control Arm Bushings > https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/volvo- ... -9443882my

Yes, this buhing will fit, but I would get this higher quality one:

It's your choice. If you plan on keeping the vehicle longer than 1 year than I wouldn't waste money or the lower quality suspensions parts you listed because they won't last long from what I've read. I already threw on Lemforder sway bar links and will be pressing Volvo brand bushings and ball joints into my control arms within the next year.

Hey there Mr Detail... you're not bothering anyone.... MDK here. So the first one is the top engine torque mount you can also get just the urethane inserts for about 10$ square or round style... doesn't matter...ipdusa.com is who I go with. Lower transmission torque mount.about 36$ .2 stabilizer links... and lastly just replace both lower control arms. much faster... they're 63$ from Rock Auto.com UROparts... they're are many opinions floating around out there about what brands to buy...I just did all the work myself with what you are looking to do on both of my Volvo's after the alignment... haven't had any issues.. photos I've posted not necessarily in sequence... but you get the idea... rolling on

1) The sway bar links are said to be made in Turkey. The Deeza brand links I bought were Turkish made and seemed well made and lasted until I sold my '02. The new owner never mentioned them failing.

2) There is one of each style bushing in each control arm. The axle of the cylindrical one runs essentially longitudinally with the car's center and the biscuit one has a vertical through-bolt and acts more like a pivot.

Is it wise to have the inspection performed at a shop that can profit from the outcome of that inspection?

chrsim, not sure what you mean. I was hoping I could do most of these fixes myself but I am not real savy when it comes to hub assy's and rear brake pads. The shop who I have trusted for years gave me the list of things I needed to do to get it thru inspection. Are you saying take it somewhere else after I replace everything?

“...Are you saying take it somewhere else after I replace everything?...”

Oh, no, that’s not what I meant.

I’m not real familiar with the inspection process in your state. But your original post sort of sounded like the same shop that does the inspection also does the repairs. Maybe I have that wrong? The only inspections we have to get around the Atlanta area are the emissions test. And if you live in an outlying county then there is NO inspection at all. No mechanical inspections anywhere in GA. So where I live we have a choice of getting our emissions tested at the state-licensed privately owned place that ONLY does the testing or go to a repair shop that is also licensed to do the testing. I try to avoid the latter as I am leary to have the car tested at a place that has a monetary incentive to find something wrong during the test.

Hub and brake pad replacement will be a walk in the park for an aerospace airframe designer. :D

Yes Mr D ...it is. I changed mine out using car ramps. I loosen the front 2 big nuts ...then take out 2 from transmission. They are not under a "load". It just lifts out. After re- installing new one. Tightened up transmission bolts first...then big nuts. After that...tighten the 2 center nuts... your all set.
