yeah, but if heat it up its like taking chances of warping it at same time.

don't heat it up too much. I put my ring gear in the oven for a few minutes before I slipped it on my peloquin and viola, it slid right on. Did the same for fifth gear when I assembled/disassembled it. It'll only warp if there is a high temperature differential across the piece so apply the heat evenly. You don't need much.

very gently pry with screwdriver underneath and use air chisel on center of input shaft. it will vibrate of.......i usually heat it up first just use circular motion around gear. just dont get it cherry hot.

You won't warp it, but you can ruin the heat treatment, making it soft if it gets too hot.
I don't have a trick to removing it, other than using the VW special tool (Kukko dual arm puller) and Matra V-170 hooks...

Yeah, the entire server is down that my site is hosted on.

24/7 support is taking 2 days to get through to a guy in the Phillipines who tells me the server is down

The pic just shows a 2 arm puller with the hooks meant for the 02A 5th gear. Not shown is the support bar across the hooks that keep them pulled in under the 5th gear, and prevents them from spreading when the load is applied.

Pulling the 5th gear:
I pulled my DZSL SLC's 5th gear last night and it was easy but I've done it several times now. Last night I modified my craftsman gear puller a little more and I think I have made it very simple to do everytime now. Also I will add that I applied heat with a heat gun for a few minutes after I had the gear puller in place and ready to crank away.

According to the Bently (G60) it should not be more than 100c or 212F.
Also i would recomend pulling on the gear, not the engagement ring (the thinky on the top of the main shaft)

I've not had any problems with my technique and I have probably pulled more 02a 5th gears then 95% of the people that read this topic

You're not going to ruin the heat treatment at only a few hundred degrees - remember, the tranny gets hot when you drive . . . .
Anybody got a 5th syncro assy. or just a slider (operating sleeve) they wanna sell? Mine bit the dust, and dealer wants $400

I actually have the 5th gear synchro/selector assembly from an 02j I would be willing to part with.
One other thing to pay attention to when heating... if you get it too hot you risk melting the plastic race that holdes the needle bearing the 5th gear rides on.
