I need to replace the transmission in my 1996

I need to replace the manual transmission in my 1996 Jetta GL. Has anyone done this before? Can you provide a walk-through, or some "insight" on this one?

Thanks!

    Much better. I know about the websites where I can purchase and even download a .PDF version of the service manuals... that's why I asked here in the first place. It seems that you have a lot of good knowledge in this field. Thank you for sharing that with me.

You can go to www.haynes.com or www.chilton.com and buy the manual specific for your car and it will tell you all you need to know.

    ok well since you want to not take that answer :o) then there are a few things you can do to know that you will be safe to bolt back up. locate where the engine actually meets up with the transmission. There will be bolts all around it so you can start by loosening those up. Do not pull then out all the way. Find all the electronic devices that go onto your transmission and make sure they are unplugged (disconnect battery before doing so). If you memory is not good you may want to get nail polish and mark which bolts go to what and what plugs or connections go back to which. The linkage is a little bit tricky to get off but make sure you have snap ring pliers to get them off safely and without damaging the rings. Disconnect the slave cylinder going into your throw out bearing and be ready with a drip pan to catch the excess coming out. once you have disconnected all electrical items (i.e. sensors, starter, etc.) and accessories to go along with it, you can now start to pry your transmission from your engine. Be very careful when you use the pry bar to disconnect it. The casing is not made of steal and will break if too much pressure is applied. Work your way all the way around the transmission making sure you get an even gap around the whole thing. Once you have done that take out all but 4 bolts and those 4 will make up the top, bottom, and both sides. When you pry more on the transmission then you can loosen the bolts as you go. Make sure you have a transmission jack or a regular jack with a flat block of wood to catch the transmission so it does not drop and crack. Those are the few helpful hints and tricks that i know. I may have missed a thing or too but that pretty much covers the basics. Hope this helps better than the last one! :o) Have a good one!

You could try to just cut out the bad part and solder in the new wire to the good part of the old. Also clean up the affected area.

How to remove transmission , how to replace reverse gear?


Are you sure that it is gone? make sure the all the bushing on the transmission are good it maybe that it is not able to go all the way in gear. If you do need to take it out get a good manual "Bentley" are the best it will show you the inside of the transmission too. Haynes are also good but not for working on the transmission it self
