Have you considered replacing the 5th gear with the lower ratio kit?

Approx £160 for the parts
hi mate

thanks for your post

i would concider this once i have got the gearbox out and the end plate off so i can tell if its just the 5th gear or worse

have you changed a 5th gear at all?

coiuple of questions u maybe able to help with buddy

1. once i have the gearbox out, how will i be able to tell if i have an easy fix or a harder one(replacement gearbox)
2. do you have the part numbers that i would need for the taller 5th gear mod
3. is the ruff figure u have quoted for dealer original parts or 2nd hand parts from other vw g/boxes

that will do for now,

dont mind a pm if u wanna take this off line and have the time bud

thanks again

No, but there's a comprehensive guide somewhere on this forum and it can't be that difficult

You don't need to remove the gearbox - refer to the guide on this forum

2. do you have the part numbers that i would need for the taller 5th gear mod

Numbers listed in the guide

3. is the ruff figure u have quoted for dealer original parts or 2nd hand parts from other vw g/boxes

Original VW parts - new
in short, refer to the guide, its definitely worth a look

hi buddy

i did a bit more searching and found the guide you are talking about. there is quite a fww threads that mention the 5th gear mod and it was a little confusing.

i wanted to make sure that i order the correct gears etc

once i get the van i will take the end plate off and see whats what

do you or anyone know the other damage that can occur to give no 5th gear at all

does the 5th gear actually come off/loose or something?

cheers
