I,m not sure about VW torque converters but when I had a replaced a TH-350 in my Shovel the trans shop drilled a hole in my torque converter and drained the fluid. They then plugged the hole with a threaded plug. They told me that they would not warranty the Trans if I didn't have the old fluid drained from the torque converter. They did if for no charge so maybe ask the shop you are working with?

Author: firstname.lastname@example.org at SMTPGATE Date: 5/16/97 8:56 AM Hey, all. I'm sorting through a pile of stuff from the '71 SB I'm rebuilding, and I wasn't sure what to do (if anything) with the torque converter. I'm pretty sure I'll take the auto tranny in to a tranny shop to have it inspected, but I wasn't sure if the torque converter should go to. Is there some sort of renewal/rebuilding process for t.c.s? Is there a procedure for checking/verifying the correct operation of it while it's out of the car? Any other suggestions?
