    Thread: APTuning Transmission Rebuild and Upgrade Services!!

    1. 03-16-2010 08:16 PM #71
      Do you have any fix for the slop that's in my 6spd shifter box? Like the plastic bushings or cable connections(on the shifter side, not the tranny). I already replaced the endlink bushings with the brass ones. Now I need to get rid of the play in the shifter box itself. I've got 10mm of play in all directions. Any help?

      no sorry nothing aftermarket to fix it.

      Are the bushings for the cable ends ok or are they worn out?

      Hey would a 1.8T EHA trans from a 04 GTI bolt up to my 2003 2.0 Mk4? I got the trans for free and all it needs is a bearing replaced and I was considering having you guys rebuild it for me. Please let me know when you get a chance.

      Thanks.

      Yes it will physically bolt up but axles will probably be different

      will an 02m accept an 02j casing? both 1.8t
      Pretty sure I spent more fixing it than I did to buy it. Hmph.

      Hey guys

      My transmission feels really loose, and the shifter wobbles around and has way too much play. Someone told me its probably the bushings, can you guys sell the parts I need, I cannot seem to find them anywhere and pulling and shipping from GA is not really feasible.

      Incidentally, worst case scenario its not bushings and I need a new tranny roughly how much am I looking at ?

      Thanks for your help

      Def would need more info as I need to know car, trans, etc.

      Unless its an 020 there really are not common bushing failures to say yea replace that. But if you can get me some more info ill try to help best I can online.

    10. 06-05-2010 09:48 PM #80
      hey i have a 2.0 with a 020 che trans in it. first to second shift isnt straight back i have to wiggle to find second then when im shifting from second to third and i push up on the shifter in third to hard it grinds fourth grinds intermititly and fifth is ok but reverse has a chatter/grinding sound when gaining speed. while i was in the shop the other day it was stuck in reverse!! then i lost it for a second but it came back. do you think this is an internal problem or a linkage/adjusting problem in the shifter or in the engine bay? if it is internal how much to rebuild?

      It sounds like something internal judging by the grinding and getting stuck in gear, BUT what conditoion are the bushings and linkage in?

      You can try disconnecting the linkage and see if it shifts better/easier

      Rebuilds are $300 labor plus parts

      Thanks

      I have a 2001 Jetta 1.8T wolfsburg. Today it just quit going into first gear. It goes in every other gear just fine. Although reverse grinds almost every time i shift it into it and the other gears grind sometimes too even if the clutch is to the floor. I have a kinetics 6puck clutch with their lightweight flywheel. Transmission is out of a beetle when my last one went out.

      I go to school and need as little downtime as possible. Could I arrange an appointment to bring the tranny to you out of the car if you think you know what the problem is? I live in akron oh so pa isnt that far of a drive. maybe like 6 hours tops depending on where you are.

      Thank you

      Hey APTuning, I got a 04 1.8t with a AWP engine code and a 02Jtransmission with an EHA code with 1st not engaging and believe to have 1st and 2nd syncros gone due to downshifting into 1st would grind as well as shifting to second on a hard pull before 1st not being found. So I'm thinking the gears are worn as well. I am also very insterested in upgrading the diff to a peloquin. Any way to get a rough estimate or what do i need to do to get this ball rolling?

      Really cant give an estimate on the repairs as I would need to see the extent of the damage first.

      The diff would be $795 or $845 depending on if yours is an early or late style, plus $300 for install and repair of the trans(parts would be additional.

      Thanks

      Thanks, I talked to Michael and he gave me a better understanding on whats going to happen. Other than that, the crate came, pulled the tranny this weekend and dropped it off at the UPS store today

      Dear APTuning:

      Here is the situatuion. I have a VRT running 23psi daily and I'm done replacing 3rd gears due to breakage and was wondering what could be recommended. I've been reading all the posts I can find from those using the G Force gearsets and I think this is the way to go. I'm still trying to decide either the 2.67 or 3.0 1st-4th gear set; any input? Because this is driven as much as possible I would opt for the mirco polishing for greater durability.

      I was wondering what it might cost for the following-

      1. Send you a used O2A CCM (trans was in decent working order before removal)
      2. Replace any worn/damaged internals (i.e. bearings, syncros, ect)
      3. Installation of APT gearset 1st-4th (best ratio for power goals)
      4. Intall Peloquin (removed from broken trans) with new bearings and ARP fasteners

      Give me your best options.

      Thanks,

      Tyler

      i have a pretty big project coming up for my 2000 vrt, so i figured while the engine is ripped apart i might as well pay some attention to the tranny.

      i dont know much about transmissions yet, so im not exactly sure what im looking for. but i just want to replace all bearing, seals, or anything else that would be wise to replace while its out. also if there is anything i should replace due to increased power (max 450hp)

      im a litte far away to bring it in to you guys, but i was wondering how much you would charge for anything i need.

      there are somewhat involved and would need the trans, shiftbox, drive shaft, subframe, mounts/brackets, front axles, and spindles.

      this is worst case scenario for the most part as depening on build date what not of the car some may not need subframe, mounts, or spindles. Ive done a couple of these swaps all on the pre '99.5 cars and have needed everything but there are 3 different combinations and some dont need all the parts.

      Cost would be somewhere in the $4000 range if all parts are needed.

      hope this helps.

      quick question, i have a 2000 gti vr6 (12v head) that i need a new tranny for. I was hoping there was a 6 speed that would bolt up, I've seen gear sets for sale but would rather buy a complete one. So my question or questions are what ones bolt up? do you have them or where can i find them? what else if anything is needed for the swap? and price or prices? thanks

      Ideally please call teh shop to discuss anything in depth or technical on the gearsets as it would make for quite alot of typing.

      Also those posts are somewhat old and have been a couple revisions and updates to the gearsets.

      Is it possible for me to speak with someone tomorrow about making this purchase. Also I need a 16 valve lightened flywheel but does that mean I need a double pin pressure plate? Please if you know give me a list of what else I need besides the flywheel. I'd like to have everything needed to install tranny right away. Thanks for all your help. Gilbert

      no one has gotten back to me.... (i was told tom would!)

      APT guys,
      Heres my situation if you dont mind helping and advising. I have a 03 gti 24v w/o2m gearbox. Had some noises coming from gearbox and first off-the-hip diagnosed a possible output shaft bearing seeing the moise sounded like marbles in 1st gear. Upon pulling gearbox is when i found the stock dual-mass flywheel w/a lot of play with the flywheel. Opted at the time to replace the clutch w/ FST stage 1+ clutch kit. After reassembly and first test drive car feels much better but still have the "marbles grumbling" sound and slight vibration. With clutch not engaged the "marbles" are still there but if you engage the clutch everything is fine. Chatter is not a problem just rev a little higher off the line. I also have BFI stage 2 mounts so everything is more pronounced than stock.
      My questions are with your experience and knowledge do you fellas see much wear on the input and output shafts and does the description of my issues sound alonh those parts? I have the ability to do the repairs but am leaning on just letting the experts hand these things, big faer would be missing something or not being able to get parts. I have dropped about $2500 in the last couple of months but before i start modding i want my car reliable and safe. Please any info or guidance you can give me is most appreciated. Thank you Grant Ford

      Honestly with what your describing I would really need the trans here and there is definitely some internal issue and really don't wanna guess blindly at it.

      silly question but do you have o2m boxes in stock for sale? have you seen wear on input/output shafts? Short on solutions. Thank you

      Not really seen wear on the shafts but have seen bearing failure.

      --02 GTI 1.8t--Trans is pretty stiff while shifting and tends to grind if I attempt to powershift in pretty much any gear. Motor and tranny are out right now for motor build, going to try different fluid in the tran to see if it helps but what do you think could be the problem/estimate for rebuild? I live in AZ
      pm if possible, thanks.
