Suspension interchange
« on: September 26, 2021, 02:34:28 PM »
Hi, I have just bought a 2003 Alhambra . Can anyone tell me if any of the suspension from other vw platforms will interchange with the Seat so I can compare prices on standard and performance parts. Many thanks.

Virtually no part is interchangeable with other models although the VW Sharan (Pre 2010) and Ford Galaxy (Pre 2006) are largely all compatible. Just be mindful of differences between petrol, diesel and 4x4 models.

Yes, the Alhamb is a much bigger car than the others so needs its own parts really. I would go for the best parts that Euros sell, always use quality components
I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all.

Always remember, a motor car is a serious tool and should be treated with respect. Put your safety first, always.
