Could you tell me what you mean by alignment pins pls? The place that sells car parts tools etc is close tomorrow so whatever I need I have to buy today! So if i can purchase these i will or if i can make them i will if I have to. Any other specialist tools you can think of I might need? I've got torque wrench only other thing I can think of is a massive can of wd40!That is the consul, firstly you have to remove the centre section as in the first picture, the fit two alignment pins and remove the consul. According to the MOT manual it is not permissible to weld suspension components, the bracket is £194.92, 1K0 199 296 J.
Also do you have any idea how much a garage would charge to replace this part for me? Roughly? As I'm considering handing it over to pro's. Like I said I have the replacement bracket would just be labour fee?
Really appreciate your advice @Crasher Tried every golf/VW forum your only person to take the time to reply. So thanks alot
