Most of my commentary accompanies the photos I took of the event. As I said, it works almost but not quite instantly.
It is faintly possible the rear coupling has come loose grub screw -- you said the replacement did not have a lock-wire on it.
New & Rebuilt Transmissions
Sort By: A heater box clamp that wasn't assembled properly. I drive a 18 wheeler i have a 18 over trans try to figure that out on your own. Other than being a 35 year old car, it at least looks and feel like a NEW 35 year old car. Slide the transaxle toward the rear of the car until the mount clears the studs. Stock axle spacers are notoriously weak, and also "groove" from the axle seal, and this causes perpetual leaks that you can never seem to fix no matter how many times you try!
And the trouble is now that if you decided to get rid of it, someone else would benefit from all the effort you've put in so far. You could keep the Super Beetle. Rob - I'm not an expert on the VW semi-auto, but might be able to provide a few pointers for you.
VW only spot welded the arms from the factory.
