    Afaik the spigot/pilot bearing is not used in transverse engines., its used in longitudinal engines.

    I did used one in my rebuild as it helps align the clutch when using the alignment tool that is supplied with my clutch kit.

    My FSI crank (RIP :crying:) had a pilot bearing but it came out of a longitudinal engine in from an A4

    You don't need it.

    No transverse engine I have ever worked on has a spigot bearing so I would say no you don't (unless there is some random variant that does... I am no expert tbh...)

    I have only ever seen a spigot bearing on A4's etc, never on cars like Ibiza's, Leons, A3/S3 and TT's...
