The 034 Motorsport MQB Upper Dogbone Mount Insert (patent pending) is required for any MQB platform vehicle using an aftermarket dogbone mount and dogbone mount insert. Aggressive driving that causes violent drivetrain movement, such as burn-outs that induce wheel-hop, will cause the upper and lower dogbone mounts to exert a bending moment on the dogbone mount arm, causing it to bend, and in some cases fail. When this failure occurs, the bottom of the engine is unconstrained and the engine will cause damage to other components in the engine bay. The 034 Motorsport MQB Upper Dogbone Mount Insert eliminates these bending forces, allowing the dogbone mount to perform as designed during these violent events.
An aftermarket billet spherical dogbone mount combined with a dogbone mount insert dramatically improves the feel and responsiveness of the drivetrain during spirited driving. However, this combination of modifications, coupled with the design constraints of the MQB dogbone mount pucks, have revealed a scenario that applies forces to the dogbone mount arm that it was not designed for.
The lower dogbone mount insert limits compliance of the lower dogbone mount puck by filling large voids in the puck. During normal and spirited driving, this reduction in compliance results in more direct transitional response of the drivetrain to accelerative and decelerative forces. The driver feels more direct throttle response through the drivetrain without introducing a significant amount of NVH.
- Patent Pending design is unique to the MQB platform
- Machined from billet 6061 aluminum
- Clear anodized finish for protection from the elements
- Eliminates rotation of the dogbone mount assembly
- Prevents bending and breaking of dogbone mount assembly

Best upper dogbone insert on the market!
Well just installed the upper insert along withbthe lower dogbone insert. Tightened everything right up. Slight amount of vibration but its to be expected. Well worth the money. Easy install cheap and for the money its a must have mod for your mk7 gli
I have the 034 lower dogbone, engine and transmission mounts. The upper dogbone really tied everything together. There is no slop in the drive train anymore. The NVH is barely noticeable now after driving a couple hundred miles. I am still surprised with the difference it made.
I installed the upper and lower insert together. Pretty simple job and only a slight increase in NVH. Make sure you purchase new bolts for the install since all three are one time use stretch bolts.
Perfect addition to an already great product.
Install was easy, instructions online were simple and straight forward. Can definitely notice more in vehicle NVH but it's very livable. Makes a very noticeable difference on the street
Added maybe 3% more NVH, almost nothing.
Top and bottom 034 inserts are now installed. I ran the lower for years and now thankfully 034 added the top. I always had that in the back of my mind, the problem that they resolved. I feel doing the lower and upper is a great solution for a daily driven car.
