Re: 850 rear shock absorber top mounts


Thanks Mike,
Turned out to be the simplest job I've ever done on the Volvo. Right
hand top mount was broken and left hand shock absorber was useless. 2
new mounts and 2 new shockers fitted and it drives like a new car. I've
been told the top mounts are only good for 80,000 miles, mine has
115,000 so I've not done too bad.
Thanks again
Maureen850 (England)

Re: 850 rear shock absorber top mounts

Maureen, when suspecting top mount what were the symptoms? I have a 850 and
it rattles at the rear top when it goes over a bump. I took off the top
mount, but it looks fine. I have put a rubber washer underneath and a metal
washer on the top but the noise is still there. Could it be a faulty shock?
