Edit: link to short shifter And a picture, cast housing and short shifter just barely clears the housing. When it boils down, Dan has a true passion for cars which started back in his yesteryears. Remove front mount, lower subframe, install. Easiest just to take the front clip off In order to get a socket on the trans bolt red dot you'll need to remove the oil cooler. I personally do all fabrication, so there are never any excuses waiting on a 3rd party to make your mounts! Might as well replace while its out.
For those of you that want to keep your stock Golf Ball 5 speed shifter knob. I think the issue of the gear oil is over-thought. Once you've done that you can put the motor back in. Joshua completed his Bachelor of Science in Business Management from Quinnipiac University in 2003 and never looked back. This kit is a completely newly geared 1-4 dog box made for drag racing. One being 320kmh at 7000rpm which suits a big turbo car better but I'm not sure what other implications this will have on the drive of the car.
You must lower the front forward subframe to get enough room for the bracket to slide in straight and unobstructed. I know this is nearly a month old but the dealer is correct. Consequence: the 4th gear breaks off! Cheers, -Chris Hey Guys, I'm gonna install my 02M today, but I have no idea what fluid to use. Ive also done this modification myself. Remove the gear selector rod --2x 13mm bolts on top of the trans case.
The Merc because of the water protection additives. After that he began advising, selling and installing performance parts for friends and family. Located on the passenger side of the transmission this cap must be removed to open your 02M or 02Q 6 speed transmission. There was a lot of shimmer of brass in the oil. The diameter of the o2m line is larger 8mm vs 6 I believe so a simple compression fitting doesn't work - and metric compression fittings are hard to find already. I'm sure I left a few things out, I'll add in stuff as I remember.
The 02m utilizes a linear bearing on the input shaft. The 4th gear does no longer runs correctly engaged. Decided not to run 100% stock due to impending failure of the heater core. The syncros don't seem to like the stuff. They have been designed to run with a certain oil, based on the speeds the moving parts are at, the temps they reach and the level surface to surface contact that occurs. My advice would be to bribe two friends to come over at this point with promise of alcohol and loose women. Now the standard gearbox has held up well with over 500bhp and some crazy launches that resulted in snapped drive shafts and one prop shaft.
Its also three times the price of the other transmission fluid being discussed which is for the 5 speed transmission. That's the original thread about this which I updated not so long ago. Mixing oils can be as bad as not using one at all. What a couple of them are doing is cutting the one outlet a bit shorter to allow some space. Justin is very passionate about cars and is very interested in how things work which makes him so great at what he does.
Problem is the clutch isn't holding any of the power. It's price is 3 times bigger than G060726A2. Be careful again, I believe in '04 it went to the 1. This bracket usually requires 2 day lead time. The 6-speed gearbox in your car requires specialist pieces that are unique to its design. I'll report back when I turn up the boost. It's tight but it'll be ok.
At the price also it's a no brainer, get the genuine stuff, it will cost you less. Notice it's very tight so I sleeved the hoses in a couple areas. Looks like the knock sensor wire is blocking it but you can see that I used a bolt very bottom of the mount on the left side to go through the mount and into the tranny. It gets you close but not quite. I made it easier by unbolting the ball joint to allow movement of the control arm to get the new ones in. I'll keep an eye on the bottles and see if recommendations change with bottling date. Make sure you get the fittings from a reputable place that sells compression fittings and general hydraulic-equipment parts.
Longer gears will help spread that power with better traction. There is a plastic bearing with rubber seal in this cap. Was this a o2m with stock shift linkage? But it is strong and bolted up to the tranny well enough to hold the power I'll be putting down. Unfortunately they typically involve some sort of warning notation. Although I still want to disassemble one to learn more about one. This pic shows the compression fittings that connected the two lines and yes, it's holding very well.
You may need to scroll to the right a tad on this pic or a couple others as when I resized some came out slightly too big. Only thing holding me back at this point is a reliable boost controller of which I haven't purchased yet. You can put a 90 degree barbed brass fitting there-the hose won't comfortably reach the overflow bottle without stressing the upper radiator hose. I put rubber washers in it to keep vibration down. My car has developed over the years and the power level keeps rising. Together they enjoy good food, good friends, and time with their family.
