    Snapped something????

    Hi all just looking to tap in to some audi sport members knowledge

    i noticed something very minor on my 1.8t this morning i say minor but in honesty it looks f. King bad........its on the driver side and looks like an engine mount to me but has a clean snap straight through it.

    pics attached if anyone could confirm what it is and let me know how much a replacement one is likely to be???

    This is the other side not broken!!! If that helps give a better idea of what it is, it does look like a relatively smallish part im hoping anyway

    subframe sounds expensive!! Is that what it is????

    I have got a spare,but its from a diesel so not sure if it will fit yours.If I remember rightly,its held onto the car with 3 or 4 bolts,and the front arb and engine mount.Fairly easy to remove.No idea what its called though.

    There are others that might know what it's and they should be along soon.

    Its not really the subframe, its sort of a mounting bracket for the engine and antiroll bar.

    Diesel one should fit fine, they're the same on all B5's. I had some spares too, but they were weighed in last week.
