After confirming that the rear wishbone bushes are due for replacing (rear wobble) I happen to inspect the engine top suspension mount rod. The bush is split / worn out and I can rock the engine back and forth. M.O.T time is due in less then two months so I intend to have all the suspension bush jobs done by then.(plus any more that go)

@james N. It's the connecting rod with a bush on each end, that is mounted on the top of the engine to the strut brace on the left hand side.
