      Where in the world can I find one for a 91 with the automatic? Mine is housing is broken at the clip for the cluster. Other than the cable being bad it drives fine. I don't want to swap for the manual UNTIL the auto fails. Plus this thing is going to be a summer daily once its running right. But I need the last piece. Any ideas????

      Earlier this year you missed out on some that were around $40.

      If you are going to wait until the automatic fails, it may be awhile. If you service the trans regularly, it should last a long time.

      A lot of early Golfs in the wrecking yards have the same cable that you have all you have to do is to look for one with a 010 tranny and grab the cable.
      I have seen histories of a 010 that is maintained going over 400K miles in a Vanagon.....
      mine have about that together...168k on one and 220 on the other.
