      1998 V70 AWD transmission torque rod no longer available?

      Multiple parts sources indicate that the AWD cars have a different part number for this which is no longer available. Anyone know what I need to buy?

      FCP lists this for my car, but then mentions that it is FWD only https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/vol...-mount-9141042

      Thanks!

      Well, the FCP part is specifically listed as FWD. I love FCP but I don't trust their compatibility suggestions.

      This site lists two different part numbers for the AWD, both listed as NLA. http://www.volvopartswebstore.com/sh...roduct=1197513

      IPD doesn't list any part for the AWD car. In fact on this page http://www.ipdusa.com/products/5824/...n-torque-mount there is a big red warning that this doesn't fit the AWD cars.

      So, anyone have the correct part number for the AWD part? Or are all these sites just mistaken and they are the same part?

      Just checked. It's legitimately discontinued (here in Europe as well) but aftermarket is still available and I believe Hutchinson was the OE for this part like with most of the mounts. You can also unbolt the back of your existing mount's bracket and re-use that with a new FWD mount. Or, you can buy both the small and big bushings in poly for example and press out your old bushings thereby re-using the original bracket from your mount with the correct orientation for the bolt holes.

      Thanks Will. I'll either modify a new OEM one, or I do note that IPD does seem to list their HD poly version as part of a complete kit for my car.

      Odd that such a wear part would be discontinued though...
