      i never had #15?

      15 looks like the clip for the pedal shaft. I think my auto only had 1 and I had to get another clip because I forgot to get it with the swap.
      I'll confess that I never put the second clip on, but it is on my list of things to do.

      vwman - what program is that that shows you everything - i've always wondered. And also where could you get all those parts apart from the vw dealer in person?
      (Back to swap topic)

      Program is ETKA, it's what the dealer uses for VW/Audi. There are various file-sharing methods for where you can get it. But the Tex doesn't allow this to be discussed.
      Aside from the dealership, you can order directly from
      http://www.worldimpex.com (input the P/N in the search box)
      http://www.1stvwparts.com (go to the part lookup)
      Only problem is that your going to get raped for shipping. This is probably a 1 or 2 dollar piece.

      Where is a place to order the stamped metal plate? I bent mine a bit so I want to get a new one.

      I don't have the P/N for it handy, but you can order it from http://www.worldimpex.com
      as well as http://www.1stvwparts.com
      You might want to check the price from the dealer as well. I think I priced them out to be around 35 dollars?

      did you check to make sure the ECU is working properly?

      Trans swap is DONE! Today i wired up the reverse lights. I had a little bit of trouble finding the yellow/white pair, so i just spliced in at the TCM connector. I ran two wires up to the 150 relay for the switch, and tied them into the two yellow backup light wires- works perfectly! ...now for some driving...

      you have to get a3 manual axles and mk3 clutch pedal and mk3 shifter box

    9. 09-14-2007 08:10 PM #134
      MK2 axles are 1/2" shorter than MK3 axles so they wont work, and the MK2 shift box is slightly different than the MK3 shift box. You cannot use your auto axles either they have a different flange on the ends.

      im about to pick up my donor car and was wondering about the vss i know there is one on the auto tranny but waht about the manual? how can you tell how fast you are going without it?and the auto cluster will work with the manual tranny like the tachometer and speedo?

      Idk about about 2.0l engines and their trannys, but when i did my swap (vr6), i kept my auto cluster and everything works just fine, and both vr auto and manual trannys share the same VSS, not sure about 2.0 though

      I wish I could say the swap in my 96 Cabrio was going easy.
      I can't get the clutch cable hooked up and when I try to start it I am only getting a "click".

      I am at a loss with the starting problem.

      Double check all of the fuse box wires... when I was in there messing with all of the clutch things, I accidentally loosened one of the thick red ignition wires, and that caused it to not turn over... Could be the source of your problem...

      just wondering if there was an easier way to line them up...

      Another idea...

      ...Use a widowmaker to shift the engine into the proper position... just not too far, though or you'll crack a motor mount

      I checked all the connections at the fuse box and they look fine. I had a mechanic take a look at it and he said the engine and flywheel turn fine by hand, and the starter is contacting the flywheel.
      Am I missing something simple?

      Set the emergency brake. Put the vehicle in neutral. Turn the ignition to the ON position. Then short the large and small post on the starter. Make sure to keep your hair and clothing away from moving parts. If the starter is good, the engine will turn and hopefully start. Then you can work backwards from there.

      I checked for codes and I am only getting a couple of Airbag Codes.
      00588 - Airbag Igniter; Driver Side (N95)
      32-10 - Resistance too High - Intermittent
      00532 - Supply Voltage B+
      07-10 - Signal too Low - Intermittent
      By connect the two terminals of the starter, do you mean run a wire from the power plug to the ground?
      I did find one big red wire under the dash that is not plugged in. It says AMP 1-929603 -1 on one side and has a 1 in a box and 191972751 on the other side. It this suppose to be plugged in someplace?

      im still having issues with my speedo and reverse lights. ive read this thread and search multiple threads for this answer and everyone says it just plugs right in...i do not have a three prong connector to connect to the mk3 speed sensor that i put in this trans. the sensor is a three prong, but the connector that i have is a two prong? can anyone please go into detail on this subject? i feel it was never really covered to well.
      thank you for any input/advice in advance!!
