Hi experts, sorry if its repost but...... my 1.9td gearbox has started to whine in 4th and 5th, it has done 220k miles! I can live with it at the moment but would like to upgrade to TDi in the future. So... what is the best option, I can probably get a 'box for around £300 and engine later, or is there an engine/box combo that will fit, passat for instance??
cheers, Geoff

Even if you go to a TDI, you'll almost certainly want to keep the T4 box. Anything else would be a lot of work to fit, whereas the TDI engine will bolt straight up to the original T4 box. It seems to be quite common for T4 boxes to need attention by 200k, so you're probably looking for a secondhand box or a rebuild as your best options.

okees, thanks for that, I have seen a box down the road from me for £280. I'll probably go for that. I did change the oil in the 'box about 4 months ago, have been told it's the main shaft bearings whining. T: Tdi will have to wait a while now :(
