Hello .. thanks for the donation .. much appreciated

You will have to replace the transmission with a trans of the same GEB code for the gear ratios to be the same for your engine.. it's a multitronic 01JH cvt (continuosly variable transmission)

Hope this helps .. let me know

Hey George.

You need to replace the transmission with the GEB code letter trans...it has to be an 01J H trans ...for the gearing ratio's to be the same or it will not function correctly !!

Dear Dave,

So as I understand we have no option than the specific gearbox. Do you have
any idea where to look for the specific model.

Thank,

George

Hello George.

I'm afraid you will need the same gearbox ! The ratio's are specific to the tiptronic 1.8L engine and ECU. As I don't know where you are located (country) I cannot supply a recon gearbox distributor. Have you tried EBAY?. Let me know
