To recreate the issue, for example, if i drive downhill and switch from having my foot on the brake to the accelerator there is a noticeable thunk from the engine bay. Volvo had the car 6 weeks but said they couldn't diagnose it so decided I need to have a go myself.
Iam having the same issue. Replace mounts 10k before. bit nothing changed. It would be interesting to see when you replace the torque mount.

I need to order the mounts. Take about a week or so to get there. Anyone have thoughts on a decent one off ebay or just deal direct with a Volvo dealer (in the UK for me as Volvo here adds 500% to the UK price!).

For the cost involved. coupled with the ease that it can be removed, replace it particularly if it is original.

If you take it off you will almost certainly find that the smaller rubber bush is totally shot.

Not better but some are identical to genuine Volvo but for much less money.

Explained in my video here.

From my experience you will probably find its the rear engine mount as it does most of the torque reaction work. Re the lower gearbox anti-torque mount, please realise that the rubber at each end of the unit is different. One end is softer than the other!! This may not be the case with the ebay items. There are plenty of tales of woe on this forum when non-oem parts especially engine mounts/suspension parts etc have been fitted. Your call!
