Have you recently purchased a 034Motorsport Dogbone Insert from AutoInstruct? Sweet! In this guide we’ll show you how to install the insert.

The 034Motorsport dogbone insert is machined from billet aluminium, and is designed to limit transmission and engine movement by filling voids within the factory dogbone mount. This is done without impacting on noise, harshness or vibration within the cabin.

Parts and Tools Required

Step 1

Raise the car on a hoist, trolley jack, or ramps to gain access to the underside of the engine. Take a look underneath and locate the dogbone mount as pictured.

    Is this fastened with a stretch bolt that needs to be replaced? Also I’ve seen elsewhere that it needs to be torqued to 100nm, can you confirm which is correct?
