Rear engine mount? The 9-5 does not have a rear engine mount. The 9-5 has a *right* engine mount (clearly visible on the right side below the big aluminium/aluminum bracket mounted to the top of the engine) and a *left* engine mount (hard to see, below the battery). The engine mounts makes the engine hang from these engine mounts. To take up torque a torque brace is connecting a center low point of the engine with the frame in front of the engine. The first model years of the 9-5 had an additional torque brace connecting a center low point of the engine to the chassis behind the engine. If the "rear engine mount" you write about is the rear torque brace then, as far as I know, this is not that important. > The dealer said this is very unusual, but that it requires the engine and > gearbox to be removed from the car. You don't need to remove the engine to replace any of the engine mounts or torque braces. -- G–ran Larsson
