Should fit it's the same part number for a 1998 mk2 and a 2000 mk3. Note cupras/tdi's etc have a stiffer rear beam than the 1.4's.
i can confirm that the mk3 axle DOES NOT fit. the mounting points are different. they are wider and will not slot into the smaller bracket holes on the mk2! as i found out earlier in the year!

Yeah as flapper says I looked at the later chassis number. Are the brackets not bolted onto the car? So could be changed?

no, they are part of the structure in the floor pan.

earlier in the year i asked the very same question and was told that it would fit so i bought a complete mk3 cupra axle and when i did some measuring, its a definate no no. but, all the fittings such as hub shaft, hub, caliper carrier and calipers will bolt straight over on to a mk2 axle.
the only difference i can see is that the bearings are designed slightly different.

Probably a stupid question but here goes lol
Do the aftermarket exhausts for the Mk 3 fit the mk 2?
Such as the milteks?
Or are the bore sizes too big with the Mk 3 being turbo?

I did once have the 'possible' theory that although the mk3 has a wider and odd shaped mounting bush as most of it was external to the metal tube it mounts in so my idea was to see if a mk2 beam could be fitted with mk3 bushes to make it fit a mk3
OR
could a mk3 beam be fitted with mk2 bushes so it could be fitted to a mk2

at the time I didn't have access to all the bits to trial fit them and the guy fitting one didn't wanna rip out good bushes just to measure em both up for my satisfaction :) but one day ill sort it

either way as a fully fitted up concern its a non fit but as ather's says bits swap over

mk3's use a seperate hub/disc so no need for bearings on disc change but to be honest the mk2 discs/bearing bits are cheap enough to change anyway - just avoid cheap non branded ones - SKF + FAG are ones i would use personally
