We have made every
effort to provide accurate information in this website. One of the biggest challenges to transaxle
rebuilding, is not simply doing the work, but getting the correct replacement parts to
do the work. Volkswagen does not put part numbers on many of the
individual parts, and has made a number of model changes along the
way. This site is intended for use as a starting point in
determining the correct parts. We highly recommend that you not
rely solely on the information posted here, but do your own
research. The Bentley
Manuals are an excellent source of
information. We will help you in choosing the correct transaxle
parts (see "VW
Transmission Diagrams"), but
it is the responsibility of the end user to determine the
appropriateness of using any particular part.
The parts list
is broken down into several main categories and then organized by VW part
number within each section. As you may know, VW has an odd way of
organizing part numbers. The middle three numbers (ie. 311 or 517)
are considered the first number, then the last three numbers, then the
first three and then the letter. Don't ask why. That's
just how it is. You'll get the hang of it after you look at the
numbers for a while. Getting around in our parts list is
simplified by having some main categories of stuff to look in. You
will find links all over the place to help get you get around.
