    Default Jetta auto to manual trans swap

    New to the VW.. I have a 2001 jetta GL 2.0l engine with 4 spd automatic.. Trans. is no good.. I also have a 99.5 with the same 2.0 engine 5spd manual... Wanting to do manual tans. swap into my 01... 99.5 has blown head hasket and bad head.. I have the complete car that I will be using all the parts from to do swap... Is there anything I need to know before i start this??

    No lol pretty easy since you have a whole car. I know about the ecu and stuff but not sure if you have to change the cluster or not..?

    Is there any difference between the manual trans. and auto trans. On how it bolts to the engine or are the bolt patterns in each belhousing the same?

    Don't take my word, but if it's the same engine I think it's the same.

    My bud did a swap pretty easily
