    Evening all, following on from my previous post about my knocking issue i've decided to fit new top mounts and instead of going for the oem ones I thought i'd try the Seat ones, anyone got a part number for them from Seat or ecp or similar?

    Cheers, Dave.

    Easy as mate, there's a guideon SCN.net, also shows how to fit collies aswell.

    Out of interest, where did you get the lcr top mount's from, that is if you've bought lcr one's!

    LCR (SEAT Sport) top mounts 1ML412303
    Bearings - 1J0412249

    Wouldn't like to say if ECP sell the uprated LCR ones tbh even though the price seems about right... SEAT dealer would be the best bet...

    I was going to go for oem ones as they have them in stock as its going in for the coil packs tomorrow but now tufty has posted up the part numbers for the Seat items I think i'm going to go and get them instead. When I change them i'm changing the dog bone mount for the red powerflex one from awesome, looking forward to seeing what the car feels like after.

    Righty, just having looked at the LCR top mounts on the shelf at the workshop it appears that I had posted the wrong PN for the top mounts... The right number for the top mount is in fact 1ML 412 331... apologies... bearings are right though at 1J0 412 249
