Ok, so here’s a side by side comparison on the FSI (top) and TDI (bottom) dogbone mount.

Overall length appears to be the same, but the FSI body is made of a far thinner metal. I would think you could fit the TDI one to an FSI without too many issues 👍
 
Is the ‘bracket’ that needs swapped from the polo one the bit on the left I take it? Renewing the bit on the right?

That is correct did mine not long ago and it's well easy!

Cool seeing the difference between the two though, extra torque is no joke i guess.

Visually tdi or fsi looks the almost the same and will fit but it is different rubber composition - harder/softer depending on engine. So you should look for dogbone for engine which is closest to the engine you have. Wrong dogbone can be too loose or too hard and you will feel it when driving.

Or possibly FEBI 108779, which is the dogbone for Skoda Fabia I 2000-2007 1.4 TDI.
I see the OEN numbers are almost identical.
I replaced the org. BHC engine support 8Z0 199 851 AA with Febi 31083 - 6Q0 199 851 AA.

BHC+ ATL: 8Z0 199 851 AA
AMF : 8Z0 199 851 H
ANY+AUA +BBY+BAD: 8Z0 199 851 J, R, S and K

Febi 31113 covers suff. AG and AQ and Febi 108779 cover AR.

It is TDI version from polo. 6Q0 199 851 AQ (Febi 31113).
Thanks @Vic - I just ordered exactly this part to replace Akoya as the engine feels slightly "looser" when starting or accelerating. Hoping this will be a cheap (GBP 33 delivered) fix.

I'm thinking of ordering one of these just now just in case I need it sometime in the future as our late 2003 amf tdi is on the original (as it is most parts) and just wanted confirmation that it's definitely the febi 31113 that I should order?

To be honest I don't really like the idea of not fitting the original 8Z A2 part but from what I understand these are not available and this fabia one is the same? 🤞

It is a perfect fit and you will notice a big improvement over an original part now even if there isn’t a problem as such.

Febi tend to make pretty good aftermarket parts for VAG cars

Perfect.

I ordered one last night so that's good to know thanks 👍

It wasn't the brand I was concerned about it was the fact that it wasn't an 8Z A2 part and for another car, as I believe Febi does make a lot of OE parts
