    This is also often referred to an engine mount.

    The rubber on the torque arm of my 2005 9-5 with 68K miles looked pretty bad. This is very easy to access and replace and I didn't have to do step 3 from the WIS instructions.

    The old torque arm. The was a lot of play between the rubber and metal and the rubber appeared to be dried out.
