Default Rear bump stop renewal

After a few days in the P2 section with no comments, I hope you don't object to me cross posting here an AWD car issue...

My V70 AWD is splitting the rear bump rubbers ( item 19 on the attached drawing) Anyone ever replaced these items. Vida shows the attached drawing under the spares tab, but under the replacement tab item 19 is shown as a bolt through item, which it is not.
I suspect they will be a little similar to replacing a brake piston seal, in that you have to go round and round pushing it a little further down until its seated into a retaining groove. Knowledge of this fact would be appreciated.

If I’ve been able to link it, have a look at this thread.

It’s concerning my daughter’s XC70 and the bump stops (helper springs) are mounted on the upper part of the suspension, but the principle may be the same. I haven’t yet tried to fit the new ones and the car has just been MOT’d and they weren’t mentioned at all.

Seems to have worked this time but not sure how.

Since 2005: 1992 Volvo 940 estate 2.0L. Manual. Daily driver and workhorse.

Thanks Ian, a lad came back to me in the P2 section telling me they were a "push fit" and locate with a lip in a groove.

I have not got around to doing job yet - more pressing this keep cropping up.
Cheers Bob
