Hi I'm looking for some help, im after a MK1 front subframe but was wondering what the difference is between the manual subframe to the automatic subframe is and what bit do I need to look for ? If any one has any pictures of them this would be great, I'm after a manual.

An auto subframe is wider between the engine mountings.

A MKI Frame may also be for Hydro too.

Indeed, I would think this is a more important consideration as you can get engine mounts that convert an auto subframe to manual making the difference less critical.

Didn't your school teachers drum it into you you ?;  ALWAYS  READ  THE  QUESTION  AND  ONLY   ANSWER  WHAT  IS  ASKED.

 

With the greatest respect, the O.P. " was wondering what the difference is between the manual subframe to the automatic subframe is ".  

 

No mention was made of wondering about variations in manual subframes.

 

You spoilsports have been and gone and answered his next question !

 

 

Lol.
