Shifted into 2nd gear today on the way home from work and everything let go...sounded like shaterring glass.
The case is completely shattered, haven't had a chance to look at anything else just yet

Re: (kilmer420)

02M seems to be the ticket.....i went thru 3 02J's and got tired, so I recently did a 02M swap. Car feels different, but good different.

It's a bit pricey to do since you need the tranny, axles, starter, flywheel, clutch, and other little bits and crap you'll need during the install like new fluid, tools you might not have to do it ect ect....Took me about 2+ months to find parts here and there. But it was worth it. And with all these wrecked GLI's popping up, you shouldn't have a problem finding parts. Also you need the VR6 6 speed axles, or you'll have to change knuckles to accomidate the gli,337,20th axles. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
