Engine mounts on a Volvo secure the engine in place. There are two or three mounts on a Volvo, depending on the year of the vehicle and the model. The only time mounts need to be changed is when the bushing material in the centre of the mount is deteriorated and is no longer able to properly support the engine or mute the vibrations of the engine during operation. When this happens, you'll need to replace the engine mounts.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Support the engine from underneath using a jack. Place a flat block of wood between the bottom of the engine (the oil pan) and the jack. You only need to jack up on the engine just enough to take stress off the bolts and to support the engine.

  2. 2

    Remove the bolt connecting the engine to the engine mount with a socket wrench.

  3. 3

    Remove the engine mount to frame bolts and pull the engine mount off the frame.

  4. 4

    Install the new engine mount. Installation is the reverse of removal.
