Abstract

The present solution relates to a method for monitoring a powertrain suspension arrangement for a vehicle. The powertrain suspension arrangement comprises a conventional rubber mount arranged between a frame structure and a component of the powertrain. The powertrain suspension arrangement further comprises at least one vibration sensor/transducer. The at least one vibration sensor is arranged to monitor the degradation of the rubber mount. Thereby, proactive maintenance of the powertrain suspension arrangement may be facilitated and the risk for powertrain damages is reduced.
