The T5 is a very smooth petrol engine , diesels vibrate a lot at lower rpm ..

The front one isn't difficult to replace. For what it's worth put another vac mount in.

Many other vehicles with a diesel engine do not have these Vacuum mounts and appear to be O.K. What is special with these mounts, as the mount has been disconnected (vacuum pipe) there is no difference ,so surely a cheaper version would still do the job , Just asking !

the rear mount rests on the steering rack , you don't want vibrations going that way into the car .. volvo know best what they are doing :-)

volvo have been using handbrake shoes since 1967 with no problems at all . well proven technology . only in the recent years have there been minor problems with shoes that have not been inspected for many years . also materials change , you will never beat a parking brake on a 140 or a 240 for example , sometimes a 2000- 2007 onwards volvo may match it when it top condition ..

I've bought Meyle vacuum mounts on a number of occasions, stamped Corteco who make the genuine Volvo one and they perform identically to genuine.
Cheapest I've paid to do the job properly is 38 so exactly how much cheaper are you wanting?
