      Sounds like a failed clutch no longer providing drive to the input shaft, OR... since it had been worked on a week prior... the inner CV axle bolts fell out on one side and the stock VW diff unloads...

      I would contact the rebuilder, unless it was me... then the problem is probably just in your mind :P:laugh:

      So, you're coming up to a stop sign in 3rd, depress the clutch to the floor to start...

      It's common that 1st doesn't want to always select, but not normal.
      If you are rolling very slowly as you come up to a stop sign or something, as you're downshifting, when you get down to a slower...

      Gear oil can help, it changes the friction the brass sync ring makes against the gear you're trying to select.
      Your symptoms are indicative of a worn out sync ring. If the sync ring can't generate...

      Sorry I didn't reply sooner, I missed this one:laugh:



      The release arm should be firm when lifted by hand to about 9:00, and the cable should pull it to about 10:00 or so, which means the cable...

      No, it's a 16V or MK3 2.0L clutch, correct for the car, but I suspect you have a 22mm input shaft trans swapped in.
      That is a classic symptom of a 24mm clutch hub spinning on a 22mm input shaft.

      I think you are on the right track.

      If the arm skipped a tooth inside the actuation finger, it would change the feel of the pedal. You wouldn't feel the pressure plate collapsing as normal when...

      How does the clutch pedal feel? Does it feel like you are collapsing the pressure plate, and does it feel normal all the way through the pedal travel?



      You used the correct clutch with the...

      Hmmm.... I very rarely find a trans that doesn't match up. Actually, I've only seen one, it was a 9A from 1986 with a 24mm input shaft. I even made a post about it in 2012 due to the rarity.

      While...

      Welcome to the Vortex!

      Look on the bottom of the trans, next to the engine. There will be a flat spot where the trans code and mfg. date code is stamped.
      In the pic below, the trans code is in...

      Leaking between the case halves isn't that common, actually. The gasket doesn't contact any moving parts and doesn't wear out, like an oil seal.
      If someone has the casing open and doesn't tighten...

      Possibly, but not likely. The adjustment would have to be so out of whack it wouldn't drive, it would have to be adjusted so that the cable is pulling the arm up so high the clutch would be...

      Since you have a 16V trans in there now, if you want to retain the clutch parts you'll be looking for the following codes, which all have the larger 24mm input shaft: AGB, 2Y (MK2 16V codes) and AMC,...

      Just the casing heights changed over the years, the actual bearing thickness or height never changed.
      All 020 use the same TO bearing size.

      You nailed it.
      22mm = 24 splines
      24mm = 28 splines

      ALL MK3 2.0L trans codes have the larger 24mm input shaft.
      Basically, all MK2 16V codes (AGB, 2Y) and all MK3 2.0L codes (AMC, CHE, DFQ, DGD)...

      Looks like cuppie nailed it, but I don't understand this:



      I'm not aware of a clutch disc for the 16V input shaft that is 200mm... I thought they were all 210mm for the bigger 16V/MK3 2.0L...
