So maybe I'm loosing my mind, but did the 04 R's come with the round or square style engine mount?<p>I picked up a new one from IPD (as well as the trans bushing) and I look under the hood and it's the square style.<p>I spent enough time under the hood to look at it several times (boost gauge installs, FMIC install, etc) and I thought it was the round style. Perhaps I'm mistaken, and thats what I get for not looking.<p>ALSO, is this something they might change on the 75K mile service if it wasn't done already. My R had its 75K service when the angle gear got replaced.<p>Thanks for the help!<p>Rue

Re: Engine Mount Bushing (Rues R)

If the original mount tore, the warranty fix was to replace the entire bracket from the round to the square. You have the stock "upgraded" bracket already, but you want the round one. A volvo dealer may have one lying around, but you otherwise have to order the whole round bracket from ipd.

I have the original round one. Looks like yours was replaced and they definitely won't replace it again with a round one at 75K, unless maybe you complained about it. <p>IPD sells the whole round bracket and bushing as a kit, for ~$70.

Re: Engine Mount Bushing (icebiker)

I sell used round brackets for $25 shipped.<br>(I think IPD's are also used, cleaned up, maybe shot with a coat of paint and charges double!) I don't think anyone can buy a new round mount anymore, (NA)<br>Let me know if you want one

Ravenna Volvo in the University District of Seattle has both new round and rectangular mounts for sale! Told by Barrier Volvo that only the rectangular were available, so maybe Ravenna just had a bunch in stock.

Re: Engine Mount Bushing (wizzard_al)

Any advantages to going back to the round bushing? I'm assuming IPD's is a bit harder than the stock one. Will it hold up better than the square one?<p>JRL, I'll get in touch with you in the near future, as I'll probably pick up a round mount for the next replacement.<p>Rue

Round one might be a bit stronger, possibly more cabin vibration, but that would be directly linked to less engine rocking.

Re: Engine Mount Bushing (JRL)

Yup, I have an aftermarket round bushing in my possession, but since they changed the mount on me, I can't use it. I have notices that there seems to be a bit more vibration than normal since I got the car back, but I never attributed it to the bushings. Never crossed my mind.<p>Rue

Re: Engine Mount Bushing (Rues R)

I picked up a round engine mount from JRL yesterday <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Ordered the blue bushing from IPD last night. It will take close to no time at all to swap in the new mount and bushing for the square one.

Re: Engine Mount Bushing (Rues R)

ALL poly bushings will give more vibration especially at idle<br>GiRaff you should have bought the Evolvo BLACK mount

If anyone can figure out a replacement for the lower transmission bushing (the smaller one). It's bugging me! No one carries a replacement
