      As the title says im looking for an exploded view diagram of the front strut mounts on my 1998 golf gl. I removed the front strut/springs months ago and stacked the mounts in the order they came off but since then got knocked over and mixed up a bit

      Ive looked all over google and other forums and cannot find anything which is quite surprising considering the amount of suspension work most VW's recieve.

      If anyone has anything it would be much appreciated!

      Thanks in advance

      Found this ETKA diagram online. Ignore the red circles, I didn't add those.

      Awesome! Thank you! Was it just ETKA.com? Just for future reference.

      ETKA is the parts database that VW dealers use. There are copies of it out there, but it's not a normal consumer item.

      On page 9, 4th post down, I assemble Bilstein Touring Class shocks with stock springs and parts. Hope it helps.

      What I meant was, it's not something you can really buy from the dealer. You have to acquire it through other means.
