Vehicle Focus: Skoda Octavia – Strut Top Mounting

The Skoda Octavia is a brilliant variation on its rivals, such as the VW Golf and SEAT Leon offering more boot space, a practical interior, an attractive price and understated looks making it a popular family car option.

The first sales for the Skoda Octavia started in 1998, and since then its popularity has grown to make this model one of the biggest cars in its class.

The latest model was brought out in 2013 with technological advancements to compete with its class rivals.

febi bilstein supply over 1,000 parts for the Skoda Octavia including steering, rubber metal and electrical components.

febi has the solution for common problems

In the Skoda Octavia, a common problem occurs with noise and squeaking from the front axle, even with OE parts. These problems are caused by poor manufacturing and the use of inferior materials for the strut top mounting. This is often due to the rubber metal compound dissolving due to insufficient vulcanization, which leads to a high failure rate.

febi bilstein has found the solution, supplying a strut top mounting with material and manufacturing that exceeds the car manufacturer’s requirements. febi’s strut top mounting (Part no. 22500) is characterised by high-grade material and professional manufacturing, with strict quality controls. This ensures our mountings are very durable, with a long service life.

febi also recommends that the strut top mounting bearing (Part no. 22498) should be replaced. We offer a repair kit (Part no. 22502) which contains all the necessary components for a full replacement, including the strut top mounting (22500) and ball bearing (22498).
