Hi there, from the pics in the parts catalog the TIP and Manual uses the same mount if it is pressed in, and here is the DIY thread on the subject where I pressed a new mount into my trans:

As far as I can tell from the pictures in the porsche parts catalog, yes they are the same - but sometimes those are just representative.

There was a similar question in that earlier thread but it remains unanswered. You might have luck searching more.

It's pretty easy to tell if you have your car up on jacks/lift/ramp, you might have to remove one underbody panel with some plastic nuts, but then it is easy to peel/bend back the covers to see the mount and it's condition.

Alternatively you could call a dealer to get the proper part number.

i think those piks are generic they appear identical im pretty sure the tip and man cases are different, thanks for your help buddy il keep searching i spoke to my local parts dealer who said they didnt have a listing which was great help, il try calling the service department and try them, i would say they are fairly worn my car has done 166k and the engine mount were split which i have changed but still not happy with the smoothness idle cheers
