Officers investigating failed car bombings at Glasgow airport and London were called to the Forth Street Mosque at about 2230 BST on Monday evening.
Strathclyde Police confirmed the car was linked to the airport attack but said there had been "no specific information" that it was a threat.
There was no sign that the vehicle had contained any dangerous materials.
Superintendant Stuart Daniels, of Strathclyde Police, said the bomb squad had been called in as a precaution.
He added: "The car did not constitute a threat and we will shortly move into the phase where we will start the forensic examination, firstly with the car in situ, and then later the car will be removed for a full forensic examination."
Seems to me it must have been a threat of something to somebody -- otherwise, why set off demolition charges?
