Wanted - MK5 GTi front roll bar mounting bracket

Am told that these are only supplied as a complete roll bar assembly and one of my originals reused with the H&R arbs has developed a crack.

Correct, I was told the same when one of the brackets on mine cracked.

I just replaced the whole arb on mine with new as it was not an upgraded one

My advice would be to pick up a used arb and use the bracket off that seeing as you’ve got an H&R one. Probably find a cheap one on the bay...

Binned it as it was attached to the arb
The new OEM arb came with new brackets etc

This is what happened to mine

Oh mine’s not that bad yet! Has just started to crack on one side of the bolt-hole.
