    Yeah you can easily do that without touching the subframe. I needed to support my gearbox temporary with a jack though, obviously very easy if you have a ramp. Just to let you know mine is a TDI so don't know how it compares to other models.

    Vr6gordy I bought 2 new front subframe bushes from Bexley Audi ( south London) 2 weeks ago so they can get them

    The reason I bought them is because mine is knocking, when the left front wheel goes up a drop kerb (about 1/2 inch high) I hear it knock every time, sometimes it does it on rough roads at very slow speeds too, a mechanic mate too it to a place that has a shaker which makes it easier to find knocks, they diagnosed front and rear subframe bushes, just waiting o ave them fitted, they were £28 each from bexley Audi

    cheers - Derek

    i would get another sub frame that is the same as what you have and change the bushies on that and then do the swap, not a job for the light hearted mate, you will need the use of ramps,
