repaired 3/10/2011 at Volvo dealer, cost $297.25 plus tax, parts & labor
I replaced iy myslef and it fixed the problem
Shifter knob lock sticking. Replaces once already years ago. Cannot remove key from ignition with this issue.
Actually a 2004.5 Volvo S40 Turbo, which is the prequel to the 2005 model change from the 2004 style - After having to replace the timing belt that broke mid-drive and a complete head job in conjunction, figured the $3000 we dropped in the car would give us another 100K. Car overheated about 6 months later, and we took in only to discover the water pump they had replaced at the same time was faulty. They replaced for free, but said that the motor mounts really should be replaced ASAP as well so it's still there now for that. $208 including parts and labor. The dealer here is extremely unreasonable (both in price and overall demeanor), so we take to a well established Volvo mechanic that is much easier to deal with but tends to work very slow.
Upper engine mount failure. The rubber insert in the upper engine mount cracked and became completely detached from the bushing. Engine "clunked" when shifting.
Replaced top engine (Torgue Mount), Part ordered on line for $45 Self installation took only twenty minutes to replace.
Mounting strut is worn out, engine block rotates. Fix is to replace the mounting strut.
I noticed the rubber was cracked and had some breken pieces, How do you fix this? Replace the whole unit that is bolted to the engine?
My engine mount began to give way at approximately 85,000
