I cooked my 95 300 tdi last week, so i thought oh well head off skim etc. start stripping at the weekend. Then i chance across a lovely Lady with a 96 tdi with a duff gearbox. Seems she was driving along last Monday and it started to make bad noises, but she drove till it won't drive anymore (only has 4th gear now) She is pee,d off to say the least cos she had just just spent £800 on welding for the MOT. Says to me give me £100 and you can have the car.
Needless to say the money came out of my wallet at lightning speed and now i own two duff discoveries
Now to my questions.
How difficult is it to change an R380 box ( 2 to remove ) ?
How long will it take to do ?
Any special tools needed ?
Thanks in anticipation
