    Powerflex or O.E ???

    As title... Im in desperate need of a new front engine mount for my dinky 1.6 8v. Was gonna get a Powerflex kit to add on to the existing mount but on closer inspection it would appear the existing mount is almost non existent!

    I'll try and get a pic up soon. Just wondering if it would be better investing in a brand new OE mount (should be able to source one for approx £40) or maybe try the powerflex one for half that....but considering the powerflex unit is moulded to fit in the OE mount - I cant see it working as the OE mount has more or less disintegrated.


    On another note - I can get replacement OE parts on ebay for the 16v models (PN 90575186) but not the 8v one (90576047) ... Anyone know if the 16v mount (complete unit - casting & rubber mount) would fit the 8v model???

    Thanks in advance guys...

    Gotta get this sorted asap as its this that caused my major exhaust issues lately..... dont ask!!

    If anyone is interested - here's a pic of the offending article!

    Looks like new mount needed as nothing for the powerflex bush to sit flush with. So anyone know where I can get a part for the 8v (PN 90576047) or will the 16v one (PN 90575186) fit my 8valve! [16v mount available on ebay for £35]

    Heres the pic of the existing one.




    EDIT: Found out the 16v unit fits mine so will just get one of these when funds allow....
