    Hi guys I need to replace my passenger engine mount which has the sensor in and was wondering had anyone replaced it with the none sensor type and does it make any difference?

    I haven't tried a non sensor one but if you do buy like for like, youll save around £40 on a genuine part buying from german ebay :)

    Hi guys after reading up on web, it seems you can put b5 mounts on the b6 with no probs and do away with the sensor mount, I've since seen some mounts on euro car parts site for £30 each by q drive?
    at that price I'm asking questions!!, they seem to be best sellers so just wondered if anyone on here used them atall as I'm thinking if Thryre cheap how long will they last?

    What is the sensor on the mount actually for?

    It's not actually a sensor. It's an electro-hydraulic mount which adjusts it's stiffness dependent on engine speed ie different speeds equal different vibrations. The electrical element controls a valve within the mount increasing/decreasing the amount of active fluid in it.

    Something like that, anyway.
