034 Motorsport - UPPER Dogbone Mount Insert - VW MK5 & 6 Golf - 034-509-1040.
This is recommended for any Volkswagen MK5/6 Golf GTI/R & Audi 8P A3/S3/ & Audi MK2 TT/TTS/TTRS using the lower dogbone mount and or dogbone mount insert.
The 034Motorsport Upper Dogbone Mount Insert (patent pending) recommended for any MkV/MkVI Volkswagen Golf/GTI/R/Jetta/GLI and 8P Audi A3 & 8J Audi TT/TTS/TTRS using any dogbone mount and dogbone mount insert, and is strongly recommended when using the OEM dogbone mount and a lower insert.
Aggressive driving that causes violent drivetrain movement, such as burn-outs that induce wheel-hop, will cause the upper and lower dogbone mounts to exert a bending moment on the dogbone mount arm, causing it to bend, and in some cases fail. When this failure occurs, the bottom of the engine is unconstrained and the engine will cause damage to other components in the engine bay. The 034Motorsport Upper Dogbone Mount Insert eliminates these bending forces, allowing the dogbone mount to perform as designed during these violent events.
