Hi Paul, Most of these gearboxes were almost identical for vw during the those years, some manuals are available free from this site
Hope it will help you out.

The actual crossmember is not very heavy but since it is bent, there may be other "stressed" portions of the frame.
- I would slack off the bolts to determine the effect before fully removing them. Also would measure betweeen the bolt holes on the replacement and the bolts on the vehicle. If the distances are different, some frame moving may be required. That could take some force.
- If the slack bolt position allows the crossmember to be wiggled easily, I'd remove it and work at getting the replacement installed.
WORK SAFE! Don't get under the vehicle unless it is on a hoist or on jack stands.

Testimonial: "I have plenty of room to work underneath without jacking up the truck, do I need to raise the vehicle so that the front wheels are off of the ground?"
