|Hi Herb, Did you put the Valvebody in your VW yourself? Do you have a list of any other items that replaced while doing the job? Wiring Harness, ect...Thanks|
Yes I did - but I have an 01M 4spd, which is really easy to do (disconnect solenoid harness, remove 13 bolts and the manual linkage and it comes right out). The manual linkage has a plunger rod, a replacement came with my valvebody, but I reckon the old one could've been reused. Aside from that, nothing else was swapped out as I didn't have any damage to my wiring harness.
I was looking at the breakdown someone did of their 09A 5spd - http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=4187298 It looks doable, but after spending some time in my friend's engine bay, her car has the 09A and considering the valve body is side mounted on that transmission you might have more trouble changing that one in-car than I did with my 01M.
