      I admit I have never tried preloading without some lube on the bearings, but I am surprised it made such a difference at the low speeds and loads present when turning the shafts by hand.

      I would say one of the shorter R&P trans codes, like the MK2 diesel codes would likely be a good match.

      Someone swapped 90mm flanges on it then, the CHE had 100mm from VW.
      The CHE was only used in the MK3 2.0L cars... VW used the AMC, then the CHE, and finally the DFQ in the MK3 models. There is a DGD...

      Do you use the trans to hold the car when parked or do you use the parking brake?
      Does it only occur on slopes?

      Nope, normal threads.

      Hit them with an impact to remove them.
      They are one time use bolts and should be replaced each time.

      They should be easier to spin together the same direction when the trans is out of gear, so something is amiss.

      What is a 1.1 busy?



      The DFQ trans is an 020 out of the MK3 2.0L cars, so it'll have the larger 24mm input shaft so make sure the clutch disc fits the input shaft by hand fitting it. It should...
