I'm in the process of swapping my VR..into another shell.......

As preventive maintanence, I replaced the main seal on the tranny, spring for the lever, and throw out bearing.......I ordered the throw out bearing lever, BUT they say its on national backorder?! IS THIS TRUE?

I NEED ONE BECAUSE MINE HAS HAIRLINE CRACKS IN IT! AHHHHHHHH

This past summer I had a lever go bad in a 95 passat vr6. The dealer said the same thing about the back order so I ordered one for an 02J tranny and it worked just fine.

Thanks for all your help guys...but I found a friend of mine locally who had one laying down.

I spoke to Dave from Germanautoparts...he mentioned that the part number i was looking for was indeed an O2J tranny part.....He says its the same part as the O2A...what happens, he explained, is that when a new car comes out...and a particular part fits another model application, the newer part # supercedes (sp?) the old number...so that O2J # is also for an A3 VR tranny as well. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
