      02J 5th Gear Swap (Info Request)

      Hey guys, hope I find you well.

      Does anyone know the part numbers or where to buy the TDI 5th gear swap? I'd like to get new and not used but any info would be great.

      And I never even heard of them. I'll check them out for sure.



      Anyone else have a recommendation for a performance clutch? Something more than stock?

      I have 0 issues with the clutch now, works well but I can't bring myself to reinstall a clutch with 250K on it. No leaks of any kind, hydraulic system is functioning perfectly.

      Yeah, I checked the plug and pins first. I like the switch. I don't like the switches in the newer cars though, step on the brake, step on this, hold one hand in the air..... just press and vroom!

    11. Question for those that replaced your timing chains

      That would certainly explain the problem for sure, hence the reason they are using a 40A relay and not the standard 10A.
