    I would say the box is essentially the same as the one you had in your Golf? O2J ?

    The diff is the weak point.

    It will be in your documentation somewhere if you have all the originals or I think it's on some bar code sticker, in the boot?

    Sorry for being a bit vague there but i DO remember seeing it on the documentation of mine.

    I have the same car with the AJQ engine, gearbox code on mine is EUK DXW, so probably the same I would imagine. Mines in the service book first page, should have all the codes there!

    I swapped mine for a 6 spd when the clutch needed changing ,6spd has larger clutch and ratios are better,the revs in 5th on the 5spd seemed very high and felt like it was holding max speed back?I was lucky to find a very low miles 6spd box very cheap 350 ish and the clutch was like brand new,to do this swap you will need 6spd flywheel ,clutch and starter motor as well as box.6spd boxes are supposed to be stronger.Mine is also AJQ,ish,Cheers Andy
