Evening all...

Just out of interest, does anyone have a scale drawing/specs/dimensions on a sump/engine guard for a mk3?

2.0 8v engine with an auto box...

Its also a cabriolet if that makes any difference?

My missus's dad can do metal fabrication at work, and could knock one up quite easily, but to save trial & error, if anyone's got specs, it'd be really useful.

Ta! Smile

I didn't even know VW made a sump guard for any car... Or are they just aftermarket parts?

Sumpsaver Skid Plate
mk2/mk3 Golf/Jetta
Corrado G60/VR6
Our Sumpsaver Skid Plate was designed to address the most common problem a lowered car faces on a daily basis - the smashed oil pan.

Consider the Sumpsaver as a protective shield of armor for your car. Construction is from premium 5052 aluminum alloy. Each unit is CNC laser cut to exacting tolerances. Each bend is completed in a CNC press to ensure a perfect fit.

Extra material has been added to safely cover the oil drain plug. You'll never have to replace a drain plug again!

Our mounting system implements a unique system that uses existing mounting points on your car's subframe and two holes that you drill into your front crossmember. Corrosion-resistant fasteners and Loc-TiteĀ® are included. We let you drill the holes to accommodate any misalignment issues with your car's chassis.

Includes complete hardware kit and skidplate.

Fits:
1985-92 Golf/Jetta (1.6/1.7/1.8/2.0 and 1.8T/TDI/VR6 swaps)
1993-99 Golf/Jetta (1.8/TDI/2.0/VR6 and 1.8T swaps)
1989-1995 Corrado (G60/VR6)

Price: $224.99

Ouch.

Yeah they are expensive and iirc G Werks stock them. I'd have a go at making one up yourself, a sheet of steel cant be that much

thing is you'll just catch it even more than your sump due to it being lower!

The thing is, I havent come close to hitting the sump or gearbox on this golf. The Bora i had before was terrible. Being a TDI, heavily slammed with a chassis notch, I went through 3 sumps in 3 months! And thats no exaggeration! Just dont want the same to happen on the golf but i think the sump is higher anyways, with it being a petrol and not a diesel. The sump guard would just be a precaution tbh. My girlfriends dad works for a hydraulic and metal fabrication company, so can make me one up easily enough, but i just wanted some dimensions or specs, so that I can give him a drawing.

& Mr Poy, if i got some specs and dimensions, I'm sure he;d make you one up too. Might have to pay for the metal sheet, but i doubt it would be too much. & Ideally, I want it making out of aluminium anyways so its light. I'll keep you informed Smile
