Shaft removal


The differential cover has to be removed to drain the oil from the differential. The cluster gear pin has to be taken out to get to the C-clips that hold the axles in. Try to position the carrier assembly so the retaining bolt to the cluster gear pin is on the top near the back of the differential. Remove the retaining bolt and the pin should slide right out. Take care not to rotate the the ring gear because the cluster gears will fall out and they are a little hard to get back in. Reverse this procedure to put it all back together. I hope this is helpful. Good luck.

PROCESS OF TAKING THE TRANSMISSION OUT.DO YOU HAVE TO TAKE THE MOTOR OUT ?


Usually not. As long as you can reach all the bolts that connect the transmission to the motor, then, no. There are usually two near the top of the bellhousing, near the floor and firewall, that are hard to reach (and hard to swing a wrench on), but (at least on the cars I have worked on) they are easier to get out than to pull the engine.

Now, if you are pulling the motor, on many cars it is easier to also pull the transmission with the motor, than to try to separate them and also support the transmission once the engine is unbolted. But the transmission is usually easier to pull by itself.

Is it hard to replce a Tranny in a 1986 VW Golf, also can this be done on the ground? I am a ase Treachnican , but never worked on VW . Chris


Yes, shouldn't be a problem. Remove the battery. Jack the car up 1-2 feet. You'll need to support the motor. Drain the transmission, there is a 17mm allen plug at the bottom of the housing. The filler plug is on the right end of the transmission, (17mm allen plug also) to the right of the throw out bearing housing plug, says VW on it. Remove the axleshafts. Unplug the back up switch. Remove the starter, that will also disconnect the motor/transmission mount. Disconnect the clutch cable and shifter linkage attached to the transmission. Remove the speedometer cable. Unbolt the rear transmission mount (17mm bolt going vertically down, a real long extension will help to get to that one) and bracket going to the end of the transmission at the top, 2, 17mm bolts with nuts. Remove the bracket. Remove the lower inspection sheild, 3, 11mm bolts. From the underneath side, on the other side of the motor where the transmission joins the motor, there is a 19mm bolt holding the transmission to the block, remove that, and also remove the small inpsection plate above there, 2, 10mm bolts. Unbolt the two top bellhousing bolts, and it's ready to remove, pull the transmission away from the motor 2-4 inches to clear the imput shaft from the clutch disc, you'll have to kind of turn and twist the transmission to get the transmission to clear the sub frame. Also moving the engine up or down will also help. The transmission weighs about 70 pounds.

I need to remove my starter on my 98 Diamante but I can not see all mounting bolts and I need to know where the bolts are located.


Hi, I am assuming you know where starter is. If you have found bottom bolt #14 metric socket which to reach you "must" use a medium length extention and go into it right above manifold pipe to reach it. I found if you take the guard off the starter 3 small hex head screws, it is much easier to get at all bolts (2). Whats strange is the lower bolt on starter mounts from the front and the "TOP" bolt #14 has to be reached from the rear of starter. You can not see the top bolt from bottom or top, but if you use your hand and reach up aroung the back of starter you can feel it! It took 2 of us one reaching up from bottom with just #14 deep well socket (no extention) on the rachet and feeling where to place it with rachet facing up, and person over top of engine reaching down helping to align socket on bolt, then use a piece of pipe or ? From the top place pipe extension on end of rachet and bolt will easily.
break loose. Good Luck it sounds hard but is fairly easy with right tools. kasheyboy77
