      post links and info about all the varietys of vw trannys and about the limitied slips.

      fifth gear housing gasket part# 020-301-215C dealer list price $7.00
      selector shaft detent spring PN# 020-311-597 dealer list $.73

      02B tranny found in the 5 spd m,anual eurovan, internals are 02a based, with about the only difference being the casing and the use of a rod shifter in place of cables,

      02Cfound in golf rallye, b3 synchro passat. this is a all wheel drive synchro tranny. with internals bassed off the 02a trans with a differeent differential for the rear wheel output shaft, and different casing as a result of this, the bellhousing side s different from a 02a, the other side is the same as 02a

      02DI don't really know much about this, except that is is the all wheel drive trans for the eurovan, this was NOTSOLD IN NORTH AMERICA and the ionternals are 02a/02b based , and I believe with rod shift like the 02B

      vr6 outer cv joits will NOT fit into the pre 92 4cyl hubs, the splines are totally different. I tried it myself

      020 Tranny info compilation, teardown tips and homebrew tools

      Modified 21/Oct/04: New URL

      It contains some notes I made about what tools are required and where you can get by with common tools (or how to make your own special tools) vs. VW special tools. Some photos of custom tools are also included, as well as some advice on teardown and reinstall that I've learned over time.

      If it helps anyone I have a VW motorsports 16v 020 rally box.

      Ratios:
      1st .... 2.73
      2nd.... 2.06
      3rd .... 1.68
      4th .... 1.43
      5th .... 1.26

      I am using a 4.64 final drive. This box is very short and very close ratio.

      CDH====3.778=2.118=1.360=0.967=0.769=3.938== Passat Syncro

      I will later start a O2J tranny code list as the gears are also swapable.

      02j and 02a transmission are interchange able. some of them require replacing the flanges. but is very easy to do with a sledges hammer and a chisel.

      Check the gears chart on scirocco.org, and download my spreadsheet there.

      I'm afraid this is becoming something less than an FAQ thread...any way we can clean it up?

      8000rpm = 108mph on large tyres O_O

      Whoa, and I thought mine was fairly low geared (4 speed after all), 6500 = 118... was looking for ways to get it higher

      Just wondering, the low-lube problem with 5th gear... does that affect any others at all? I'm kind of wondering about mine and how to test it (never been done, far as i can tell)... which would be the next to go out of the remaining 4?


    24. 05-05-2003 04:13 AM #25
      I think someone needs to break down the tranny codes like O2J and O2A or whatever, so we know what years and what engines they came with. For all years and models if possible.

      Whattttt???? These flanges come out very easily if you run 2 long bolts through opposite sides of the flange against the flat areas provided on the case! the flanges will pop right out and this is the preferred method.

      those are both good ideas, wish I would have tried that when taking my trans out, instead I grinded the flange off. lol

      if you have to replace the Torque converter oil seal in an 010 autmatic tranny, the vw part number is 010 409 568. DO NOT buy this from Napa as they gave me the wrong part. (I ended up with a inner wheel bearing seal for drum brakes). I will edit this post when i take a picture of this part.

    29. 07-05-2003 03:17 PM #30
      OK just to pick some brains... anyone have info on the 084 transmission, codes AKV, AKY, CEL and CEL (it says here ;-) ). That's what's allegedly in my (1991, A3) car.
      Unfortunately I have no tachometer so I can't do conclusive tests, but it seems close to the GC tranny, for a 1980s US frame of ref . That is, at limited revs (6500 or so), it indicates ~30, 53, and 81mph, and will do at least 105 in top without hitting the limiter... Sounds like it's revving about the same at 65-70 in 4th as it does in 3rd at 45-50.
      (That is, approx 3.45, 1.91, 1.29, 0.91, and a 3.89 RP.. running 13 inch wheels and 145/70 tyres, speedometer seems set up almost spot-on from timing milestones)

      Just trying to determine if they are actually the same box with a different code in US vs Europe. After all it had four different codes in Europe alone ...and makes my quest for the oil drain point a little easier and less likely to lead to disaster...

      how do o2a tranny and o2j tranny differ from each other? Cause i bought a tranny from Autotech that they built with a qauife 6 speed and lsd. When i went to put it in, the guy at the shop told me it was an o2a. The parts that he told me were different were the shifting linkage and the back-up light plug that comes out of the tranny. Is this it? The tranny went into my mk4 1.8t 2002. If that is all, would that make the tranny an o2a? If so, does anyone wanna buy it? only has 12000 miles, never raced.
