I helped Woody23 do his and it was simple to change, his old rubber bushes were stuffed so we noticed a difference as soon as we took it for a drive. I think he found a how to from somewhere I will ask him for you if he doesn't see this post.

That was the how too that we used. It is so easy to do though and it does make a difference. As some others have stated it does give more vibration through the car until its done a few hundred miles, but after this you forget its done.

All of the bolts came out with no problem at all. I've no idea what the 3rd bush is, as you say the powerflex kit only has 2 and there are only 2 bushes on the dog bone mount anyway! Just make sure you use the supplied grease on the bushes when re-assembling and you will be fine, really is a very easy mod.

The third bush is at the other end, where it mounts to the gearbox. It's of the pressed-in variety like your suspension bushes, so you won't be changing that in a hurry.

just had the power flex dog done mount put in. I hope it does settle down as at low revs the cars vibrates quite a bit through the cabin /dash.

if it doesnt im probably going to put a standard one back in...however its only been on 2 hrs.

Awesome GTI Have 15% off powerflex at the mo BTW. only cost about ?11 plus vat
