      This has been a common swap for Foxes since, like, ever. Your head will bolt to the ABA block. There are a couple of things that need to be swapped - there should be a thread in the FAQ somewhere. ...

      Not sure what your build is so this tidbit might be *completely* off-base. My Scirocco ownership was long ago. I bought a Fox in 1989, and I still have the thing. So most of my VW...

      Need to alert the folks in the Scirocco forum about that Mk I. Someone will snap that up and fix the floor pans - decent Mk I 'roccos do *not* grow on trees.

      If you use fiberglass without treating the rusted metal, the rust will keep right on eating your floorboards. If you plan on keeping this Fox long-term, make the repair with metal. If you choose...

      SourKandi,
      Grab any intact door handles and side view mirrors from that junkyard Fox. If it has a 5 speed, yank that too, the entire shifter and the tranny. Get underneath and pull the fuel pump...

      I've never felt like it was hard to change gears from the selector shaft. If it is that hard, then time to rebuild. Or just find a used transmission. Might take some looking but you can usually...
