Turn the transmission clock wise to posiotion the disfferencial at 10 o'clock. Pull it away from the engine as you lift the tail. You could take it out on your own, but need the help of another to put it on if you are not in a shop with all the tool. Hope this helps.

    if you are taking out the gear oil, please look at this advise. when you have it ready to add the new gear oil. have the car leveled. you do not need to put it on a jack. remove the drin plug. put it back. simply turn the tires to the left. remove the 17mm female screw. I use a vise grip and an old screw from the tires as a tool. open it up. then go on top of the transmission, and remove a 17mm screw thats on the top. add the gear oil through there until tha grease spills through the side. that does it. do not try to add oil through the side. that way you will not get all the gear oil in. And only the five gear will get oil.

I have a 99 Cabrio and there is no transmission dip stick. According to the manual, you cannot add transmission fluid to the transmission yourself, you have to take it to a dealer.

2000 Volkswagen Cabrio needs to be accelerated really hard before it goes reverse, and even then it goes very slowly. It drives well. I have checked the transmission fluid and it is good.

Best approach is to drain the tranny fluid and refill with new type F fluid. This fluid is great for restoring poor performance due to sticking clutch bands and valves.

Can 97 vw cabrio manual pull a 1200lb boler trailer

No. The Cabrio is not made for towing and does not have the proper axle ratio, trans cooler, etc. Ive seen a lot of people these days putting trailer hitches on cars and for larger cars this may work as the motor can compensate. Your Cabrio is 4 cylinder and to pull that load will overwork the motor and cause it to fail much sooner. Not to mention that it will wear out your clutch plate in your manual transmission.

I have a 1998 volkswagen cabrio and I cannot seem to get the clutch cable to fit it is to much play in it and the clutch is to the ground.

If its a cable then it needs adjustment, then you can adjust the cable on the transmission; however if its hydralic, then the clutch slave cylinder needs replacing.
