The "105D" would be the better of the 2 transmissions. It is a smoother 
shifting trans. VW/Borg Warner added some accumulators to the trans to 
improve the harshness of the shifting.
With a Bentley manual, and if you can find a genuine VW 'Dasher" manual, you 
should be able to fix it yourself. The Dasher manual is Very, Very good when 
it comes to the automatic trans, and they are basicly  the same trans.
You need a very clean place, and plenty of room to spread things and keep 
track of where they go.
I used to rebuild them when I worked for the dealers, and they are not that 
hard. Just time consuming and very meticulate.
