      That's a good site [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      For those who have swapped in a MK2 trans into their MK3, I have an Oil Change page (no pics) that covers the change in 1987 to the fill procedure for the 020. http://www.brokevw.com/020oil.html
      If you don't add some through the speedo hole, you can put 5th gear at risk. http://www.brokevw.com/0205thdamage.html

      Awesome info.
      Broke, thanks for the MKII clarification. I have a MKII trans swapped into one of my Golfs, and this is good to know. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I've got a 2Y in my car and i've always solely used the speedo hole to fill the trans. Is that ok?
