Hello golfdave,If you have a hatch the spare wheel well is deeper on the 2wd compared to the AWD (R)......& if you have the torsion beam rear axle the top mounts for the springs are in a slightly different place compared to the multilink suspension. I know this as another person on here contacted me as they had huge problems trying to convert torsion beam to multilink..& it wasn't until I went through all the rear body panels & their PR codes that I found the exact differences in panels!....
Thank you so muchTo swap from 2WD torsion beam to 2WD multilink
you need to remove this from your car:-

& fit this:-

You also need to alter the mounting on the body for the top of the springs as its in a slightly different place, unless you buy expensive coil-over rear dampers/springs..
Just torsion beam to multilink on my golf 7
was planning a awd swap on my skoda octavia mk3 2015 as well
