If its down on the rear gearbox mount the engine will sit back if the front ones buggered then it'll hang forward.

Check out how much it moves..... get someone to let the clutch out whilst in gear , so you see it moving.

Watch it buck, switch off the engine and rock it back and forth to see which ones buggered.

The 1 closest to the passenger side mate. Sure i see some homebrew welds on it. Unsure if that was just to mount the cable now though. I'll have a look when i pop over for my wheels and give ya a second opinion mk2 KR sitting wonky?? 51732

do you have any knocking noise coming from the bay.

a gearbox mount has been shot on one of mine before, it was a bit crashy over bumps.

quick fix with a trolley jack and a socket set

Lee had a look at the meet quickly and he said something about a cup for the gearbox mount? Still not that sure really I'll post a pic up of how the engine is sitting!
