Our Van Gogh bracket fixes all 1999.5 through 2005 MK4 Jetta TDI, 1999.5 through 2006 MK4 Golf TDI and 1998 through 2006 New Beetle TDI in the US and Canada as well as many VW/Audi/Skoda and Seat engines in Europe and elsewhere. This hefty billet 6061 T6 aluminum bracket bolts on to the back corner of the engine block after the stock cast iron mounting hole for the engine mount breaks off (click for another picture). This bracket makes this part of the engine mounting system stronger than stock. This kit will save you a lot of time and an engine! Believe it or not, many cars have been totaled and many engines have been exchanged for new ones simply because this mounting ear had broken off. Kit comes with three bolts to attach bracket to the block but you should also buy the $16.00 factory bolt kit listed at the bottom of this page.

This part is installed with the engine in the vehicle. We highly recommend that you clean out the threaded holes in the engine block before mounting this fix due to the likelihood of rust being present in these threads (Use an M8-1.25 and M10-1.5 "bottoming tap" though a regular tap will likely work fine).

US Shipping: USPS Priority Mail shipping is by far the best deal at $6.00 - $8.00 for a 2-4 day average delivery time. We ship from Texas.

International Shipping:
If your car is down and you need it fixed quickly we highly recommend selecting FedEx International Priority shipping which takes 2-4 days to arrive. Please note that there will be local taxes, customs, and brokerage fees payable upon delivery when using FedEx. If you are able to wait 1-4 weeks for delivery then we suggest choosing a USPS 1st Class Mail at around $16.00 - $23.00 as there are no brokerage fees charged when shipping with USPS. The 1st Class padded envelopes are usually delivered quietly in your mailbox.

For our customers outside of North America:
This kit also fits Euro-spec cars equipped with Volkswagen engine codes ALH, BEW, AQM, AGR, AHF, ASV, ATD, AXR, BKD, ARL and ASZ. The kit will also fit Pumpe Düse TDI engines that DO NOT have the diagonal gusset as pictured below. If your car has the gusset, then you need the late PD BRM VanGogh. Also, please type your engine code into the 'Order Comments' section of the checkout process if you have an engine code not listed above.

Rocksteady May 23, 2017
Reviewer: Isaac from The Palouse  
I was quoted just over $5K by a couple different shops to fix the broken block issue. Options I was given were engine replacement or having the block stripped so a new ear could be welded on.

Enter the VanGogh, where I did the job myself in an afternoon for WAYYY less $$$. It's a beefy part that won't be going anywhere when properly mounted.

As a side note, if you have this problem check your timing belt! You'd almost have to go out of your way NOT to when you install this part, but it should be said all the same. I found significant damage to my TB getting ready to install this part because the front engine mount bracket had come in contact with the outer edge of the belt.

Saved me HUGE money!!! December 3, 2013
Reviewer: Trevor Streets from Kitchener, Ontario  
When I realized it was the tab on the block my heart sank as I knew the engine was going to have to be replaced. Then I found this company. THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
On my ALH application this was a quick easy fix. The hardest part was getting my hose keepers back on.
