Re: pedal cluster

Okay, I'm a little confused here.  What does the pedal cluster have to do 
with the shifting?  My first guess would be that the shifter needs 
adjustment (an easy task).  Next guess would be checking the clutch cable 
to make sure it's properly adjusted; sounds like it *may* need a little 

Also, drain the tranny oil and replace it with synthetic as this may help 
somewhat.  Don't forget to clean the magnetic tranny drain plug.  If it's 
full of metal shavings then I recommend you get a new tranny.  I was 
looking into getting a stock T3 tranny and they run less than $400 for a 
good, warrentied (is this a word?) unit.

For parts let your fingers to the walking -- look at the ads in the VW mags 
and call around.  Just make sure they know you're talking about a TYPE 3, a 
Fastback, and not a Beetle.  I am amazed at some of the idiots I have to 
talk with who don't know the difference...and they are working for an 
air-cooled parts place!

does anyone know where I can get a pedal cluster?? The problem is that mine car 
is having problems going into gear.  What happens is that I will stop push the c
lutch in (which was replaced recently) and try to get it into 1st gear and it wi
ll not go in, plus it is having problems getting into all the gears.  I know the
 trans needs to be replace but my mechanic says that this will help and that the 
 cluster is type 3 only.  I need this and motor mounts.  If anybody has any idea 
 please let me know.
