      Sorry if this has been answered before. I did some searching but could not find an answer.

      I have a AAA VR for my Cabby. I also have a lead on a cheap/free O2J trans from a 2000 Jetta TDI. I will be able to get the shifter assembly, axles, cables and anything I need from the car.

      Has anyone used this setup? Will it bolt right up? Any help/advise would be awesome...

      Any thoughts I post are my own. I am not speculating on any repair VWoA is making, has made, or will make.

      Well the differences between the 4cyl setup and the 6cyl, is just the belhouseing, so u could still swap the new style shifter set up, as well as the tdi 5th gear from the tdi, which lowers ur revs for highway.

      Thanks for the advice/info everyone.

      I actually found a transmission! I scored a trans with a VR6 long block for $400. SWEET

      Sorry, that dude traded the trans for a TDI cylinder head.
