    Hi all,

    Probably been covered before i'm sure but where do people buy the Polyflex bushes for the dog bone engine mount from, off of ebay or a specific website?

    When changing it, do you have to stick a jack under the engine or simply unbolt it and swap the bushes over?

    Cheers

    Will

    I got mine from C&R Enterprises off eBay. I went for the Black Series 'cos I'm not a fanny :lick:

    I jacked up the gearbox with a bit of wood on the jack, it helps with getting the bolts in and out.

    Quite a few places - ebay, dpm performance, Awesome gti, psi tuning to name a few. There are different colours of bush which refers to their firmness. Red bush = Tdi bush (softest), Yellow (med), Black which is supposedly racing spec etc. I went for the rear red bush and it's make a positive difference and has no negative impacts so far.

    The dogbone has a small circular bush at the front and a 2 part bush at the rear of the mount. You can also buy new mounts with the bushes already installed. I've just had an ecs mount today :)

    I've seen somewhere that the engine may drop a little when removing the mount and therefore supporting it will make changing the mount easier.

    I think I'm right on this stuff, please correct me if wrong :keule:

    Hope this helps.

    Not sure what types the front small bush comes in and I think it can be harder to remove/fit. The rear bush should be very easy slide off slide on.

    Good luck bud :thumbs up:

    My engine didn't move when I took it off and it went easy off and on. And there is a diy somewhere in here that explains well how to change the front circular one. Its easy just dril a few holes in the ruber and than use a metal saw to cut the plastic ring. Make shore you don't cut the mount :)
