  1. Selecting reverse gear 102 acv 02g gearbox

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hi all a very basic question and a bit embarrasing after swapping from auto to manual gearbox, do I need to push the stick down to select reverse or just move it all the way over to the right then back as if selecting a 6th gear if it were fitted ? All the other gears seem to select nicely after...
  2. Driveshaft length, ACV

    Engine & Gearbox
    Does anyone know the correct length of the driveshaft for a T4 ACV with an AFK gearbox on the passenger side? I have seen both 529 and 541 mm ones and do not know which one to pick. Cannot check on my car as the driveshaft I want to replace is probably not originally from a T4, but a Passat (I...

  12. 1998 2.5 ACV 102bhp Turbo issue?

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hi all A quick question or two. The turbo on my T4 ACV swb only cuts in at 2400 revs, sudden acceleration and much more lively. Could this be a hole in a pipe or something? If it cut in lower, I wouldn't have to change down for some of the hills around where we live! Cheers Miles
