Angry C70 Subframe Mounting

Hi hoping someone can help.I have a C70 Mk1 convertible that I am in the process of renewing the clutch.My problem is the front subframe mounts.The nearside has a spigot fitted to the body which fits the subframe bush front and rear.The driver side has nothing just the M14 bolt through the subframe bush this does not look right to me. I have tried Volvo dealers but cannot get any help.

Default C70 subframe

Hi Tony

Thank you for your prompt reply. Sorry for delay but had to work out how to attach picture.

This picture shows rear spigot (attached to body) about to locate in subframe bush, there is another at the front.
This is on the near side only(RHD) on the offside the M14 bolts just pass through the 25mm subframe bush.
I have read that the convertible uses metal bushes but surely not one side only.

Regards Greg
