Hey all think my diff and gearbox are on there way out as I am getting a whinning noise coming from the centre of the dash and mild vibration through the gear stick as well as a couple of instances of heavy jolting as if the car had caught something in the road but nothing was there and engine mounts and driveshafts are all i decent nick.

So is the gearbox on my car(an 2001 AUM 1.8T 5 speed) the O2J gearbox and is anybody selling one or have any recomendations as to where i can get one I am in south west london and need one quick ?????

P.S. How easy and what is the gearbox of the AUQ to fit ?

Cheers and keep it real just like my friend the orange peel

Also I now seem to have a crazy petrol light which cant make up its mind if it is full or empty and gives me no readout I am assuming that this is due to the diff / gearbox and a sensor there any other ideas welcome

Mate, dont be prophet of doom! Its most likely the dogbone mount shagged! Specially if there is some vibration on taking up drive.

Get a powerflex, 15 quid, worth a punt. Difs are pretty strong, gearbox too, some stories of flywheel failure, but its quite rare.,

I'd try the dogbone first.??!!!

Just put some saw dust in there, that'll quieten it down nicely.

Seriously though, is the whine on over-run or there all the time ?

If on over-run more likely to be the diff, if there all the time could be a diff bearing which should be fixable.

Oh and I now have a very funky petrol light which can not make up its mind if it is low or not or has no petrol whatsoever !!!

They say bad things comes in 3's so I am just waiting.

Also what is the gearbox code for mine I think it is 02J but am not sure any other ones that will fit ?

Gutted, what is it with VW's and their gearboxes.

Probably made out of the same material and the window regulators and maf sensors.

i.e. cheese.

It'll either be a.....

EGY

EVS

box.

They also fitted the FDC which is a 01MM box to the AUM.

This might help....

Probably the float sensor in the tank.

I don't know if it's combined with the fuel pump on yours (it is on most cars) so sadly to rectify it's going to be ???'s

Also petrol tanks are about the only thing I won't touch on a car these days, for obvious reasons. Best advice is to get it in a garage who have insurance, just in case, the worse happens.

Minor niggles ?

I reckon near on a grand for what needs doing which is 14.5 % of the value of the car which is just too much and at 67k it will only get worse IMO
