      The reverse light switch is located on top of the selector tower. Just follow the gear selector cable to the tower and you'll see it :)

      That play does seem a little excessive.

      I would remove the green end cap and inspect the locking clip, which secures the actuation finger, for damage or improper fit. Another possibility would be...

      Not hard at all. With first timers, it should take between 1-3 hours depending on their mechanical aptitude, and you can do this without dropping the transmission. Make sure to inspect the seal...

      Short answer no.

      It's true that 02A and 02J bell housings are interchangeable, but only if they are in the same engine classification.

      For example; A 4 cyl. 02A bell housing will work with a 4...

      Did you remember to install the clip for that particular set-up? ( the one pictured on the right).

      This R&R should be pretty straight forward, but of course never is :)

      One tip I can offer, is to make sure the column is at full extension before the re-installation. If the steering stock has...

      Could be a fuel or air delivery issue. As already mentioned, check your timing to make sure it is correct.

      The Bentley Manual is awesome for troubleshooting this stuff

      I would agree with the above. Make sure you have the proper/compatible O2 sensor for your car.

      For your idle/surge issues, I second checking your grounds in the engine bay. You also might want...

      That is your inspection hole for setting timing on the flywheel.

      You can pick them up at a junkyard, a vw dealer, or from me :)

      The plastic gear is inserted into the transmission speedo hole and is held into place with a securing plate and a bolt.

      For the Mk2 cars there are three different speedo gears to choose from

      Red = 15T
      Grey/White = 16T
      Green = 17T

      If got the correct one, then I would re-check your installation

      rstolz,

      I see a brass bushing - it's a little worn, but she's in there :)

      OP,
      It is my understanding that all A1,A2, and A3 starters are interchangeable. Just keep in mind that the...
