    Hi gearbox has gone on the daughters Beetle. Any one know if any other gearboxes are compatable with the one on the 1.6 AYD. eg any Golf ones or 2.0l Beetle.
    I am having trouble finding a non high mileage one second hand. Or if you have a good one for a 1.6 AYD engine.

    cheers Murray

    I think a 1.6 gearbox will physically fit as they are all the same boxes just have different gear ratios in them.

    Alternatively surely a 1.4 Polo with the same engine will use the same (or similar) gearbox.
