This VW Super Beetle strut mount. This is the top plate, bearing and rubber mount of the Super Beetle strut assembly. Strut mounts carry the load of the vehicle over the front suspension and if the rubber separates, you will get banging and clunking whenever you drive over bumps and expansion joints. This also affects the alignment and can cause extra wear on tires and other parts. If they are worn out, it's time to replace them before they do more damage.
Change the strut mount and bearing together as a pair for best results. Installing the strut mount requires the springs to be compressed. There is a lot of pressure on the springs so make sure you use the right tools. No sense in hurting yourself on a simple job like this.
