The MK3 Tubular Front Cross Bar is a direct replacement for the factory MK3 Golf/Jetta front cross member, including power steering tabs and rad tabs, all in the factory position.

Our Tubular Front Cross Bar is stronger, stiffer and lighter than the factory front support. The cross bar itself is half the weight of the factory cross member, that’s a huge weight savings! The integrated front engine mount decreases engine movement resulting in more power transferred where you want it. This part is made from steel, beautifully TIG Welded and coated with black powder coat for durability.

* Additional hardware is needed in most 1.8T applications as the factory starter bolts are not long enough to bolt on the Front Engine Mount. We recommend the Front Engine Mount Hardware [Starter Bolts] - 1.8T Swaps for 1.8T engines.

The rad tabs position the radiator in the same position as factory. The rad tabs are removable to accommodate both North American and European MK3’s.
