  1. Hi guys, Just noticed this little bung when inspecting my engine bay. Never noticed it before so not sure if it's always been open but I wanted to know if I should close it? On a side note, it would also be helpful if anybody could tell me what it does and why it's there? Please see the photos below for reference. Many thanks.
  2. So I've been trying to find a box to put in my mk2 but the best I've found locally is a cable shift from a MK3 does anyone know if I can connect my current shift mechanism to the cable shift box.
  3. Hi, i have a ETG gearbox from a 6n2 GTi. With the 5th gear cover removed i'm able to wiggle the output shaft about 0.6mm radially, and about 0.6mm axially. Can anyone confirm how much float, if any the shaft should have. The input shaft seems to have no axial play, and minimal radial play. Thanks
  4. Hello, guys. I'm continuing the restoration of my breadvan and currently am at the gearbox stage. The issue is - the shifter itself has a lot of play when in gear. I don't know if that's normal or not since the car is older than I am and perhaps I'm asking too much of it. But still, it has a lot of play when in gear and the shifting accuracy is balls. By that I mean that you don't really ever know if you shifted into reverse or first, or first or third because of that play. (the reverse plastic "wall" on the shifting rod is broken this is why you can mistake it for the first) So if it is normal please let me know and if not - what would I need to replace? It's my first car and I'm still learning. Thanks a lot you guys. If needed, I can supply videos and photos, cuz I understand that "a lot of play" can mean a lot of things. But maybe it's a know issue or what not.
  5. Hi guys, Broke down road side and had an RAC come and do a road-side repair, i'm now struggling to find a replacement for what he replaced. You're looking at the end of one of the gear linkages which come from the gear knob. You can see he put a piece of metal in the gap, between the cable/rod and the nut on the right. I'm assuming to stop the cable/rod popping off the nut on the end. Any ideas what this part is called / part numbers? really struggling to find anything other than the full cable which doesn't look like it comes with it!
  6. Hi, I'm on here after a very frustrating few days looking for gearboxes. I have a 1.4 tdi diesel polo with the gearbox code JHG and am struggling to find one with a matching code that isn't overseas or ridiculously expensive. Is there other codes that would also fit my model? Or is there another car with the same kind of gearbox that would work the same? Or would I be better paying to get it repaired rather than replacing the whole thing? Any advice is welcome. Thanks in advance
  7. Hello everyone. It's been a while since last time I came here looking for solutions for my 2000 6N2 GTI gearbox. Basically, at the moment I have my Polo at the mechanic for an engine rebuild, I also decided to take apart the gearbox that I'm currently running at, a 085 DKG gearbox from a 1.0 6n as I made a little crack in the housing near to the mount days before the rebuild. The gearbox is very short ratio, it is fun in the mountains but quite annoying on motorways. So I thought about changing the final drive of the actual box to a diff/ pinion from a 1.4 engine, so it can get a little bit longer but not as long as the GTI that comes from factory. Until here it's been clear for me, the solution is simple, as I only need to get another final drive and put it on the one I have currently. Once my Polo is already being all opened up, I thought about getting rid of that sloppy shifter. I had in mind to get a OEM shifter from a mk4 golf, Bora, a3, ibiza and so on, but I'm not sure if it would be a direct fit to the 085 box I have on my Polo. My girlfriend has a Lupo GTI and the shifter feels precise and solid and I'd like to have the same feeling on mine. The questions are... Could I get a 02T housing and fit all the gears from my 085 in it? to get a shifter from these series ? Are 02T boxes a direct fit to my car? If not, can I just get a shifter and fit it directly on my085 box? Any suggestions and ideas are welcome, I've been doing my research for weeks about gear ratios, combining available parts and compatibility with what I have and what I want to get, so I'm getting confused at this point 😅 Kind regards from overseas, Lisbon Portugal :)
  8. Hi, Does anyone know if the 085 transmissions (in this specific case, it's on a Mk2 with a 2G engine) ever came with a digital speed sensor? I want to get a digital speedo from one of these boxes for a project I'm working on. I think they were used in Mk3s and Mk4s as well, right? I'm having trouble finding info on them.

    Faulty gearbox?

    I don’t really know much about cars. I’ve got a 56 plate polo and I haven’t done any mods to it except my boyfriend put an induction kit on it the other week. I’ve noticed that a few times before and since that my car will stall after I start it up without any feet on any peddles or in gear. Today and yesterday I’ve noticed a couple times that when I put my car in second it either slipped out of gear or something because the shifter would shake and obviously I couldn’t accelerate but it didn’t look like it was in neutral. I’m worried that my gearbox is faulty or something but I’m hoping that I was having an off driving day.
  10. Hi, My gearbox seems to be on its way out, unfortunately I have a 9n3 1.6 sport. I wanted to know if I can replace the gearbox with any others from other 9n3 models and engine. I know the transmission code is JHL but that's about it. Hopefully a replacement which will just swap right in. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  11. Hi all, I’ve recently purchased an NZ 1.3 with a 5 speed 8P gearbox and am looking to change it out for the 1.0 AAU lump that’s in my 94 bready at the moment. The NZ unit I have has only done 45,000 miles so apart from doing the obvious (cambelt/water pump etc) while the engine is out of the car would you guys recommend any other checks/replacements? Unfortunately the NZ didn’t come with inlet/exhaust manifolds and I was wondering if I can use the existing set up I have from my AAU engine or will the fuelling/mixture be all over the place? Also I’m after a 5 speed gearbox mount for my 8P box so if any of you guys/girls have 1 for sale then just let me know and I’ll have it off you! Many thanks in advance. Rich.
  12. I got it in my head that I need to check the gearbox oil. I know that the box is getting tired, but I thought it might be a sensible thing to do. Looking at haynes, there is not a lot of information on how to do this. Is this even a sensible thing to do? I've noticed that there's a plastic plug that is very loosely covering a hole. It's on the top-front of the gearbox/clutch housing. What is this for? https://imgur.com/a/r8ExSnc
  13. I appreciate that this probably isn't normal fodder for the forum so please bear with me. My daughter , god bless her, decided that the dipstick was an unnecessary accessory and although no oil registered on the dipstick it really wasn't a problem. So after a 10 mile journey to the beach and back the cam now sounds like a machine gun. The Polo is a 2006 1.2 6v and admittedly drank oil like a thirsty glass blower, didn't leak it nor did it throw out clouds of blue smoke? The upshot is I have located a car with a 12v engine and wondered would an engine swap be viable and what would it entail? The other niggle is the 12v car has lost 5th gear and when placed in gear with the clutch in sounds like a towel wrapped brick in a cement mixer so assuming the engine swap is viable are the gearboxes the same for both engine variants? Thanks in anticipation.

    085 OR 02T?

    well its been a while since i was last on here!! originally joined in 2009 with a coupe, now a mk1 astra, 3 coupes, a nova and an e30 later i'm back in a breadvan! surprise surprise the box is bust..... if anyone knows the type that would be lovely as im ordering 5th gear repair kit, would it be 085 or 02T for mine? its a 92, 1.3 86cf box.
  15. Hi. I have made the dreaded mistake of removing the star-headed bolt on the front on the gearbox (1991 polo 1L, 4 speed), thinking that it was the oil filler plug. Now 1st and 2nd gears are very stiff to select. This is a well-known mistake (as I have recently discovered through google), apparently that bolt holds a selector plate in place. The general advise is that the gearbox will have to be removed and opened up to fix it. Does anyone have any other , less difficult/expensive suggestions to fix it? I'm sure someone here must have experienced this. Could I remove the gearbox end-plate with the gearbox in the car, and fix it through that opening? Any advise or sympathy appreciated.
  16. Hi, I have recently put my coupe S Gt on the road with the original coupe S gearbox. The gearbox gave up on me at the weekend, so I'm now looking for a replacement. Finding a GT 'box is not looking likely at the moment. Can anyone advise a decent box to match with GT? I would prefer something that will be a straight swap. Gearbox codes and what car they can be found in would be perfect. Cheers Boab
  17. Hey guys, Just asking what grade of oil I should run on the 085 gearbox on an 6n2? I know the VW stuck 75w90 and the boxes crap out but I've heard people run 80w90 and have had no issues? I just want my chocolate gearbox to last me.
  18. Hi folks Recently picked up this 5 speed box for my Polo as a spare part. I've cleaned it up a bit to try and see the code but the numbers/letters I can make out don't seem to tally to any of the codes I've seen that were used in the Mk2/3 Polo's. Does any have an idea what it might be? To me it looks like 8CWN??075 TIA
