Product Description


The original rubber engine stabilizer mount has proven to be a weak link that that can fail prematurely and allow the engine to rock and move during acceleration and braking, significantly affecting the handling and performance of the car. This mount is located near the top of the engine on the backside just to the right of center, connecting the engine to the firewall. The original mount requires a special Volvo press tool for removal and installation.

Our improved polyurethane material is stronger and the 2 piece design allows for easy installation without special tools. The original mount is covered under the basic Volvo warranty, however we have heard from customers that have had the original rubber mount replaced several times during the warranty period. To inspect your mount, look for signs of the rubber separating where it is attached to the outer housing.

The original rubber bushing can be removed and our HD replacement can be installed in about 30 minutes with common hand tools and included instructions.

Most 2005 and later 5 cylinder models use a square style upper engine mount. If you have the square style mount and would like to upgrade to the ipd heavy duty mount you need to replace your square style mount with a round mount housing. Please note that some 1999-2004 models have the square mount installed by dealerships as a replacement.

Please inspect the mount in your car before purchasing to ensure correct fit.

"Round" style mount
If your Volvo has this style mount, then you can use our polyurethane bushing.

"Square" style mount
If your Volvo has this style mount, then you will need to replace it with a round style mounting bracket before you can install our polyurethane bushing (or you can buy the complete mounting bracket with bushing from us.)


Potential Product Fitment Issues

These polyurethane bushings are firmer than the stock rubber parts they replace and WILL transmit additional vibration. Especially if the motor mounts and or transmission mounts are worn. When you replace the worn out rubber mount, much of the load is now supported by the new stiffer bushing and this can often lead to unwanted vibration, especially at idle on models equipped with automatic transmissions. It’s important to make sure that your other mounts are in good condition. 

Additionally, if you're replacing multiple upgraded polyurethane mounts this condition can be amplified. Firming up the engine mounting is a trade-off - better performance may come at the price of increased vibration and engine feel through the cabin.

You will need to verify what style mount is installed on your vehicle.

This product will only fit the "round" style mount.

If you have a "square" style mount, look at the similar products tab further down this product page for a full mounting bracket replacement option.
