    Engine top mount small bush replaced

    After fettling around on the car the other day I'd needed to remove the engine brace. Whilst I was there, I discovered the small rear top bush had split on both sides.

    So I managed to grab one of these...

    https://www.powerflex.co.uk/road-ser...+Bush/521.html

    for 16 delivered off ebay.

    Here she is fitted...



    Noticed a very subtle difference but nothing major. No cabin vibration, which is the main thing.

    I'm still hesitant to replace the factory rubber bushes (top engine mount + the rear top bushing) to the powerflex ones as most owners reported cabin vibration after this mod.

    I can advise you on the bushes I have, if you want. I can assure no vibration in the cabin!

    Fitted Polyurethane bushes:

    My bushes are as follows:

    Front of car

    Subframe bushes x4: Poly inserts
    Wishbone bushes x4: Powerflex purple
    Engine brace top Large x1: Superpro poly Purple
    Engine brace top small x1: Powerflex purple
    Engine brace end bushes x2: IPD solid Aluminium brackets (makes Engine brace rigid)
    Gearbox lower torque mount x2: Fit latest Volvo OE bracket (uprated large bush) and replace the small rear bush with Powerflex purple.

    Rear of car

    Rear lower center arm inner x2: Powerflex Black series
    Rear lower center arm outer x2: Powerflex purple
    Rear toe control arm front bush x2: Powerflex purple
    Rear upper link Y-arm void insert kit x2: Powerflex purple
    Rear inner rear lower arm x2: Powerflex purple
    Rear outer rear lower arm x2: Powerflex purple.

    The rear bushes are a bitch to fit, and will cost around 400 in labour alone. Some need to be pressed out using a hydraulic press. However, they are well worth it and after a full alignment, the car will have that 'New car' feeling when everything is tight and under control.
    PowerFlexing your bushes are a good way to 'future proof' and guarantee longevity and constant control with no fatigue or wearing out of the bushes.

    Obviously a Full alignment is necessary.

    No 3 - It seems the toe bar is no longer available from IPD. Checked 3 weeks ago, when replaced the old ones with new ones from Volvo.
    I haven't able to find any other adjustable version for the R.
    Paid 22/side for the Volvo toe bar - with my discount.

    No 6, 10 & 11 are all being done at the same time as No 12. Within 7 days of those being done, it will also have its 154k service, so No 9 will be done too.

    Heatgun plastic trim refresh...Genius!

    Ok. I've seen all the videos of this on Youtube as was scepticle but impressed at the same time. It also doesn't matter what cream, plastic treatment you apply, they all wear off in the end and don't last. So I thought what have I got to lose? If I damage the trim, it can be easily and cheaply replaced....so I gave it ago.

    Using a Heatgun to refresh your aging plastic trim.

    BEFORE:



    AFTER:



    I used the lowest setting on my cheap two speed heatgun and the results speak for themselves. Very quick and easy to do, taking me no more than 15 minutes to do the entire car (exept front bumper trim as these are new).

    You just have to be careful not to allow the heat to linger too long as you will blister the paint next to the trim. Thankfully, I didn't.
    You don't even need to prep it as the heat from the gun will melt any product on the trim and instantly burn it off.

    New number plate surrounds

    Bought these very cheap off ebay for about 10 delivered. Great quality and I highly recommend as they save the risky drilling of the plates.



    Prepped two 25mm bolts to fit these...



    I decided to leave the old plate tape residue on the tailgate as it slightly cushions the plastic trim as stops any vibrations.

    Two new sticky end strips for the ends of the trim...





    New plate clipped in onto the special sprung loaded feet..



    Then snap the door shut..



    Front plate:



    These new plates I've had kicking around for a while and was never going to fit with the black plate holders. I now wish I'd got plates without the black line, as I feel they will look much better. Maybe get them later in the year!
    Really pleased with the plate holders they appear to look like part of the car and somewhere for a license plate to go, rather than being bolted/stuck on. They blend in well on black cars too

    Yep it's a good trick that, I did olives front bumper a couple of years back and then used that gtech C4 on it and it's still looking good today, I mixed results with Guls bumpers but they where in bad shape to start with and god know what had been put on them over the previous years before my ownership.
