Hi folks,
This may be a really stupid question but..... does anybody know if the internals from an audi 80 td gearbox would fit into my 1.6jx 5 speed box??
Im figuring that all these tranverse gearboxes must be very similar if not the same? or maybe im just raving...
Anyways any info most welcome!!!

I very much doubt that anything from an 012 gearbox will fit in an 094 transmission, the shaft centres will be different and the synchro design is different
Audi and VW were still fairly distinct businesses back then it was only in the 90s that they became platform vehicles and shared designs and components A4=Passat, A3=Golf etc..., late 70s early 80s the first Passat was very different to the Audi and had a different transmission
