Need picture of right side motor mount support bracket of 2000 Golf Mk4

I think I have a serious problem with my 2000 Golf 1.8T.



The right motor mount support bracket has come loose from the engine. The bottom mounting hole is definitively torn open, not sure what the damage on the top mounting point is.



As a result the engine has shifted forward until the timing belt ran into some part of the engine. Making a nasty noise and terrible wear. It is obvious that I can’t drive this car anymore, which is a shame, because the engine still runs great.



So, to make a long story short. Without dismount the whole engine, I would like to see what these mounting points look like, and if there is anything to salvage.



If anyone has this engine sitting in a shed, or under the kitchen table, would you please be so kind to take a few overview and detail pictures for me?



You help is highly appreciated.



Kind regards,



Erwin aka. Dutch Dude.

Apparently that mount has a history of failure and requires replacement. Read it here.http://www.autozone.com/shopping/repairGuide.htm?pageId=0900c152801bfe77
