    Fluid type for manual transmission

    Yes, my manual trans has one. It’s suppose to be on the drain plug but mine was on my fill plug. I swapped my drain and fill plug so the security is on the drain. The tool is a 16mm 12 point tamper proof bit (I believe I bought mine at autozone). Make sure you remove the fill plug first before...

    B5 transmisson wanted

    Yeah you got lucky. People in NY want ridiculous money for their Junk Cars. I paid $1000 for my 2005 Passat TDi GLS and it had a slush box that went so I had to tow it. He was originally asking 2k! Granted the car was literally mint with tons of maintenance records, new tires and brakes...

    Hit up @Frans from DutchAutoParts even though he is in Netherlands, the cost with shipping was cheaper than local sources. He can get you real TDi 5 and 6 speed transmissions. No gas transmissions. They have different gear ratios. He provides everything for the full swap. Pedals, shift linkage...

    BHW Engine Mount Dilemma

    Just wanted to update since Windex came in here. I’m over 10k miles on my Corteco mounts and still buttery smooth. Sorry to hear you’re having trouble windex. There are 4 things that I can think of that will cause bad vibration. Bad snub mount, bad engine mounts, bad transmission mounts or you...
