  1. Ask A Volkswagen TECH - Hosted by Nitroscope8
    Newbie (me!) just acquired this car. Trans needs to be replaced. Wondering if there is a chart/site that can tell me what 5sp manuals would be a direct swap for this car? Plan is to buy a used one, but my thoughts are if I can increase my search from just 2008 Rabbit 5 sp manual, I might get...

    Thanks in advance if there are any suggestions to follow... My car is a 2003 Jetta, 2.0, 5sp, 160k miles, everything else about the car is great! But: Recently, when attempting to start the car, the horn blows as soon as the key is turned on. If the key is turned farther to the "start"...

    My 81 pick up trans won't disengage completly when I have the clutch in. I can feel the clutch rubbing and it grinds when I try to shift. I've had to adjust the clutch cable all the way out to where there's no free play left to make it driveable at all. Does any one know what the problem could be?

    I am putting a 82 Diesel engine into an 88 cabriolet. The Diesel I am using is coming out of an 82 rabbit with a 4 speed tranny. I wanted to mate the 5 speed out of the cabriolet to the engine but someone told me this would not be a good match due to the gear ratios. My question is- what happens...

    Post up your Rabbit's 1/4 mile times. If you have the slip post it up too. Also include performance mods, including weight reductions. Don't forget weather conditions as well. Here's mine: This was my first run ever on the strip and I failed at launching. Hence why my 60' is so bad. I'll...
