Hello there!

I just converted my golf mk3 1996 90hp TDI from auto to manual. but i cant start the car!

How do i make the wiring, so the car will start with the key again? (starter doesnt react on turning the key because of the missing "P" sensor at the former automatic gear lever)

So I was working on the 5 speed swap on my wagon this weekend. I forgot to put the dustshield on when i put the flywheel on. I don't have the dustshield handy, it's somewhere in the parts car, do I have to remove the flywheel to install it and can I reuse the flywheel bolts after I torqued it? Or should i just slice the cover and slide it around the flywheel?

Yes you have to remove the flywheel to install it and I would not reuse the flywheel bolts once they have been torqued. At least i would not do it. If you want to do it right, then remove the flywheel to install the shield and replace the bolts that have been torqued. Don't feel too bad, I did it too one time. Lucky I had a spare set of flywheel bolts handy.

Bah, the earliest I can get the bolts would be over a week. I was suppose to have this car done today.

I have a 2000 Jetta TDI. I am planning on doing the swap on wednesday.

I have a donor 2002 TDI that is wrecked.

Would it be easier to pull the ECU and cluster from the other car and then install it into mine? I could grab the wiring harness also?

Thanks

Hi guys, I need some extra information. How much harder or easier is it to swap out the cluster and ecu and wiring harness from the donor car.

Thanks

I am in the midst of this swap on my 2002 Jetta VR6 12v wagon.

However, I am stumped with the cruise control hookup at the Motronic ECM. I've got the black and yellow wire at the TCU with continuity down to the clutch switch, but the yellow with red wire at the TCU has no continuity to the ECM wire of the same color.

And I am not sure how to identify pin #66 on the ECM. I've looked at the various wiring schemes which have been provided in this thread and they have been very helpful - thanks to all that put these together. I have the Bentley manual as well but I cannot find the ECM pin #19 reference - the closest is on page 97-292 where pin 57 shows a ro/ge wire from the cruise control push button.

And on that same diagram, it shows pin 39 as the clutch switch for the cruise control, using a white with red (ws/ro) wire. This seems to conflict with the pin 66 advice for this...

Thanks in advance for any assistance with this!

Chris

EDIT: This post http://forums.tdiclub.com/showpost.p...postcount=1840 suggests that Pin 39 is the correct one for use with the 2000 VR6 -and had a white/red wire that was in place. So am going to follow that advice and connect the Clutch switch to this location.

EDIT 2: I can confirm that cruise works with this configuration.

are you getting voltage at the switch?
does the switch work?
Do you get voltage to the butt connector that leads to the reverse lights?
Finally got around to tinkering again, 6 months later
Only because I was tracing a water/sunroof leak lol

The switch is working, I think there was a yellow/blue wire with continuity.

I verified all wiring is done exactly per the guide and I keep blowing the #31 fuse.

Any ideas on where I should start?

Update: Got the lights working with the blue/yellow wire. I had the blue/yellow hooked to the black clutch switch. Not sure where I got mixed up in the instructions, but I'm sure that was why I had lights until I pressed the clutch in. Tomorrow I will check everything out and figure out the last bit of wiring for the cruise control.

Default MKIII to MKIV swap?

Hi all, quick question for anyone who might know....
I'm swapping my 01M P.O.S. automatic for a 5 speed....I found a manual from a '98 TDI. Will it bolt up to my '01 TDI? If it will partially work, can someone give me an idea of where the biggest issues are going to be?
I need to figure out if this is going to be feasible.

Thank you in advance,
Jim

Jim,
IIRC, you want a trans from 2000 to 2003. The early 99.5 was the sloppy cable shift leftover from the A3/B4's. 2000 and up was the standard A4 more precise shifter cable system.

Tony,
So you're saying the Mk3 manual will bolt up to the Mk4 for a swap from Auto to manual?
Just trying to be sure before I spend the money...not very clear in my searches so far....
Thanks!
Jim

Jim,
No, that's not what I'm saying.

The cable shift mechanism was upgraded, early in the lifecycle of the A4 platform.
