      I tried to get this going early on. Could not generate any interest. Not even one.

      you BET!!

      The plastic part it replaces is really flimsy. This Gruven part really firmed up the feel of my shifter which in turn provides better driver feedback.


      Don't forget to mention-- This is probably the most cost effective short shifter alternative for the O2A

      Good point, every G60 Ive seen already has metal side/side transfer lever. Do some G60's have similar trans linkages as VR ? Ive always told G60 people this wont fit but I could be wrong!

      Your assertion is correct.

      it is a long story. Which is why I made a good thing out of a bad situation by implementing the Gruven part into my shifter linkage on a G60.

      For the story

We closed the book on this part, and it will never need to be replaced again. "Wife-beater" t-shirt not included.

      This part replaces OEM P/N 535-121-647 (535121647) found on all Corrado G60 and VR6.

      Good product. I'm slowly converting my entire car to Gruven parts as they break. I have this and the cable shift end. Next will be the hood release cable as I've just broken the clip by the release handle.

      I'm so glad there's a company out there willing to make parts for the smallish market of the Corrado.

      I'm also working on a Golf 16V and thought I might convert to the Corrado radiator simply because I can use this part on that car too. But the consideration isn't the expense in the G60 radiator, the Gruven radiator neck, or the additional lower water pipe, its the expensive Corrado hoses.

      It's true about the deterioration of the plastic neck. My plastic let go, blew the hose off and made a mess. I should have ordered one of these as preventitive maintenance but you live and learn I guess. I received confirmation my part is in the mail, Thanks!

      Build quality is down the crapper with plastics for engines now. I still run my oe plastic neck from the last radiator replacement. That puts it at 22 years old. Time to go Gruven when I install the old skool metal Golf engine coolant temp sensor to the block

      I just wish we could find a decent metal radiator solution ...

      Im about to tear into the front end again to replace an alternator thats putting out all of 12.000 volts at idle so now would be good time to do it. I hate putting that plastic back in there!

      MKIII 2.0 ABA Billet Lightweight Crank, Tensioner, and Alternator Pulleys – NON-UNDERDRIVE!

      www.GruvenParts.com offers precision CNC billet lightweight (and Non-Under-driven) crank, tensioner, and alternator pulleys for the ABA 2.0 engines. The pulley set reduces engine rotating mass by over 4 lbs to help you squeeze out every last bit of power, without the problems associated with under-driving components. Our billet tensioner comes ready to install with a 20K rpm bearing to replace the cheap OEM plastic pulley. The crank pulley is a slick dual design which incorporates the power steering v-belt pulley with a light mounting flange (new shorter grade 12.9 attach bolts included). Finally, the alternator pulley is a paper light version of the OEM steel pulley to minimize parasitic losses.

      Check out www.GruvenParts.com for all the billet goodies!

      These parts replace the following OEM part numbers :

      037-105-243A (037105243A) ABA crank pulley
      037-105-253 (037105253) ABA power steering pulley
      028-145-278E (028145278E) ABA serpentine tensioner pulley (also fits MK3 TDI)
      028-903-119F (028903119F) and 028-903-119AA (028903119AA)ABA alternator pulley

      Corrado Billet Hood Cable Clip

      The Corrado hood release cable clip (mounted to the hood pull bracket near the drivers left knee) is notorious for breaking at the worst possible time -- when you need to open the hood.

      Rather than using a cheap stamped version which will break again in short order, our version is precision CNC'd from a solid chunk of aerospace grade billet aluminum and installs in minutes. No need for the time consuming task of removing the ENTIRE cable, this one slips right onto the hood pull bracket and locks in with all supplied fasteners included. VW doesnt even sell the hood clip anymore, but even if you found 1 it would be a waste of time to remove the entire hood cable to put it on, as it would break again in short order. Skip the cobbled together mystery versions floating around as well, ours is designed right! We LOVE Corrado so we're happy to reincarnate it’s parts from CNC'd billet.

      Fits ALL Corrado and replaces Clip P/N 535-823-567 (535823567) that installs on cable P/N 536-823-531 (536823531)

      02A Billet Stainless Steel Short Shifter Bracket

      Replace the weak plastic link in your cable shift mechanism with this one made from Aerospace grade, hardened stainless steel. Reduces side/side shift throw by 35%! This part replaces OEM P/N 1J0-711-256 (1J0711256) common to most 02A cable shift MK3, MK4 Jettas, Golfs, TDI’s, Beetles, Passats, and Corrado VR6.

      Replaces OEM P/N 1J0-711-256 (1J0711256)


      Stainless FWD/AFT Steel Shift Cable Repair Block

      GruvenParts.com is proud to release this solid stainless fwd/aft cable shift repair block for cable shift VW vehicles. This part will quickly replace the weak forward end of the factory fwd/aft shift cable P/N 1H0711265 (1HO-711-265) where it connects to the transmission linkage. There is no need to source an entire shift cable mechanism (which is very hard to find, and also quite pricey) in the event of a broken fwd/aft shift cable. And if your cable is not yet broken, throw 1 of these in the glove box and be prepared for the inevitable!

      This repair block repairs the FWD/AFT cable P/N 1H0711265 (1HO-711-265) common to most 02A cable shift MK3, MK4 Jettas, Golfs, TDI’s, Beetles, Passats, and Corrado VR6.


      Stainless SIDE/SIDE Steel Shift Cable Repair Block

      GruvenParts.com now also has solid stainless side/side cable shift repair blocks for cable shift VW vehicles. Once again, there is no need to source an entire shift cable mechanism (which is very hard to find, and also quite pricey) in the event of a broken shift cable. And if your cable is not yet broken, throw 1 of these in the glove box and be prepared for the inevitable!

      Add some indestructible hardware to the factory cable shift mechanism where it needs it most! Buy these parts together and save!!

No need for the time consuming task of removing the ENTIRE cable, this one slips right onto the hood pull bracket and locks in with all supplied fasteners included. VW doesnt even sell the hood clip anymore, but even if you found 1 it would be a waste of time to remove the entire hood cable to put it on, as it would break again in short order. Skip the cobbled together mystery versions floating around as well, ours is designed right! We LOVE Corrado so we're happy to reincarnate it’s parts from CNC'd billet.

      Fits ALL Corrado and replaces Clip P/N 535-823-567 (535823567) that installs on cable P/N 536-823-531 (536823531)

      Corrado G60 Power Pulleys !

      GruvenParts.com has designed CNC billet aluminum Crank, Alternator, and Tensioner pulleys for the Corrado G60 8V Engines. Each pulley is precision machined to a run out of less than .001 on one of our HAAS CNC mill-lathes. The products are completed entirely on the CNC mill, and therefore have a nearly chrome surface finish. Our G60 Pulley Kit reduces rotating mass by over 5 lbs. Added bonus - ditching those cheap plastic factory tensioner wheels!

      Buy them as a set and save !!

      These pulleys replace the following OEM part numbers :

      Crank : 037-105-255 (037105255)
      Tens : 074-145-278E (074145278E)
      Alt : 037-903-119 (037903119)

      How much will the tensioner pulleys be, if you do get enough interest?

      www.GruvenParts.com offers precision CNC billet lightweight (and Non-Under-driven) crank, tensioner, and alternator pulleys for the ABA 2.0 engines. The pulley set reduces engine rotating mass by over 4 lbs to help you squeeze out every last bit of power, without the problems associated with under-driving components. Our billet tensioner comes ready to install with a 20K rpm bearing to replace the cheap OEM plastic pulley. The crank pulley is a slick dual design which incorporates the power steering v-belt pulley with a light mounting flange (new shorter grade 12.9 attach bolts included). Finally, the alternator pulley is a paper light version of the OEM steel pulley to minimize parasitic losses.

      Check out www.GruvenParts.com for all the billet goodies!

      These parts replace the following OEM part numbers :

      037-105-243A (037105243A) ABA crank pulley
      037-105-253 (037105253) ABA power steering pulley
      028-145-278E (028145278E) ABA serpentine tensioner pulley (also fits MK3 TDI)
      028-903-119F (028903119F) and 028-903-119AA (028903119AA)ABA alternator pulley

      Have you ever thought of making them this way:



      By making the plate a little thicker, you should be able to use just the threads instead of welding, and by offering as drawn, you may expand your market to those who want to stay with stock throw.
