      No problem, and having a spare is always a good idea.

      Possibly. You can grind a little from the axle/drive shaft end to give more room, and grind the top of the bolt down some for the same reason, which would help, but the issue is the depth of the...

      A cheaper option is to install a 9A trans and switch it to 90mm flanges, which is basically a 4K with the 3.67 R&P... then you could swap in a taller 5th if you wanted even more "legs" on the...

      Straight and smooth. The dents on the tops are worn from the detent bolt going over them.

      Show me a pic of the side of the selector (just a shot of the side of the grooved portion that the detent bolt contacts) so I can see which type it is, and I'll check to see if I have a match. You...

      Where will 5th gear fit? ;)

      The 4 speed output shaft will be only long enough to mount 4 gears onto, your 5th will have nowhere to live.
      5-speed R&P sets are interchangeable but not so with the 4...

      The shift fork rod would have had to come almost completely out for the reverse fork to drop free, which is possible I suppose, but surprising that it didn't cause more problems by being completely...

      Not that I'm aware of.
      I started stocking new OE VW bolts to replace those used bolts in rebuilds because of the poor design.



      That's a new one for me. Interesting, to say the least.

      No idea on the source of your noise, but if you run it to 50 with both tires in the air, then stop one (by applying friction to the tire to slowly stop it) you will force the other tire to spin at...

      Something doesn't make sense.



      That sounds normal.
      In gear, you're connecting the input and output shafts together via the gear set. The input shaft is being held by the clutch/engine. This...

      It's a common fault.
      Plan on the idler gear being shot, and possibly the mating gear which is the 1st/2nd sync hub assembly.

    14. Scirocco 16V sat for nearly 10 years, what do I do now?

      How do I drain the syrup out of the fuel tank, lines, pump, distributor, etc., and then what do I stick back in if not fresh fuel to clean it up again?
      Stopped driving it due to a faulty 02 sensor,...

      8V GTI sat for 10+ years, what do I do?

      Nope, I didn't drain anything. I had a leaking heater core, I bought a new core from GAP, and then everything sat for 10 years. New Yokohama A520 tires, ruined. New Bilstein Neuspeed custom valved...

      Agreed.
      12mm spec is including the rubber round buffer the cable sits on. I don't have one handy to measure, but your suggestion equates to 6-9mm of freeplay, which, when you take into account the...

      Was the replacement finger an OE VW finger or a Chinese finger? If it was around $40-$50 it was likely OE VW, less and it would be Chinese.
