    I'm working on this saw for a friend. I need to replace one of the antivibe mounts. Can someone clue me in on how to remove and install them? Literally the first Stihl I've ever worked on. Usually its husqvarna or vintage mcculloch around here lol.

    These are usually pry (while still assembled to saw) or press out using drill press and suitable arbor. You have to figure out which end of the AV mount is solidly attached and whether you have enough room to pry without removing the whole handlebar assembly.

    Once you remove the plastic expander plugs, you have to wiggle the rubber out of the hole it is set in.

    Ok, it was torn in half. The half in the handle bar I got out easy enough. I cant seem to get the part out that is in the saw body. The expander plug was missing already. Will need to get that too.

    The one up near the cylinder head will need the 4 base bolts removed on the engine so you can get the expander plug out past the cooling fins.

    if there is an easier way, please let me know.

    Ok, that may explain my problem. There is an expander plug on the inside too?
