hey whats up, i was wondering if any of you guys know where i could get a tranny for a 95 2.0 golf. I'm looking on ebay right now, and thats going at $255 at the moment. I dont know if thats an average price because i've only had this car for about a month (btw pleasure to drive).
Anyways down to the problem, the tranny makes this really loud clicking noise when i start backing up, my mechanic told my reverse gear is screwed...something to do with the teeth.

I looked and found one with
Stock factory low mile transmission(code# AUG). Perfect fit for 1990 to 1992 Golf, Jetta, and Cabriolets. It is also usable for other years and models.

in the body of the ad....from Northern California....is that your ad?

It's a very common problem on the 020 trannies, mine was pretty bad before I sold it. The problem is reverse is not synchronized and the car MUST be at a dead stop when shifting into reverse. If it is not the gear is still spinning too fast and it will grind when dropped into reverse. Rebuilds can get pricey, and you never really know what your getting when you buy used. Good luck http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: (dude8383)

Your best bet would be to get a few quotes from tranny places for a new reverse gear and labor and all that. When i was looking around, it was around a grand. A lot of places will tell you that they can't give you a good estimate till they crack it open and see exactly what needs to be replaced. I don't know what a new one costs, but I would get some quotes for a rebuild and find out what a new one costs and compare. It may be a better deal to spend a bit more and get a new one.

Your forgeting I've already been there and done this, go to a tranny shop and see what they quote you to replace the reverse gear and reassemble, it'll be a hell of a lot more than 2-500 bucks. Maybe you can find a used one for that but you'll never get yours fixed at a shop for that price

Yellow pages, look under Automotive - Used, Recycled Parts
Rebuilt on the web, cheapest I've seen was over $500, highest was near $1400.
