    Audi a6 c5 after auto. to manual transs. conversion the car wont start

    Messed up wiring is guess. It's probably seeing a nss (neutral safety switch) from the old auto tranny wiring indicating the car is in gear(not neutral or park) so it wont even turn over Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    I would look very closely to determine if it is the final drive seal or possibly the two pictured seals that are meant too keep fluid from seeping out the breather hole in this gear set. If the two seals on the end of the black tool I had made (brown seals on black tool pictured) aren't seated...

    Fan Control Module

    It is under the frame rail, drivers side, just to the left of the radiator. If you need one I have a good one used one I will sell for far less than new Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    Does anyone here know what this is? Found in footwell!

    Looks like a door lock plunger, threaded hole in the bottom? The knurled edge leads me to think it's for pulling up and unlocking door? Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    Exhaust must come off at least to the clamps above drive shaft, both front axles off. Fwiw, I wouldn't attempt it in a space that small. U need room to maneuver a jack along the side and a cherry picker up front. Tranny must come out the side, unless car is 3 feet in the air. I did mine on...

    Also engine needs to be supported when trans removed... With engine hoist out with cross bar between front struts... Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    Your fill plug is through the big hole in the trans oil pan. U need to have it up to temp, running, then remove plug. Fill through same hole.... Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    Bell housing and case is totally different I think. Bellhousing doesn't come off, either. The 24a has the front drive shaft in the case and houses the front differential as well. The gears and seals internally will be same I think but cases are not same afaik Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    I pulled off a complete rebuild of my 5hp24a in my garage without special tools. It can be done. Oh, and I'm not a professional mechanic, but have rebuilt one manual and three automatic transmissions. Just saying it can be a diy project. I've got pics, manuals, advice, key me know if you need...

    S6 4.2 Manual Conversion

    A diy rebuild of the auto can be done successfully. I did mine for about $1k in parts (w/o torque converter rebuild or replace) and it works awesome so far, about 2k on it since rebuild, intimidating but do-able. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk
