This will be my documentation of how I TDI swap my ranger. Stay tuned.

I will be posting most updates on my new member page, and saving this one to big updates.

Update!

Clutch replacement, drive train inspection, power steering box replacement

I got all my parts in last week, that I think i will need to fix my clutch problems, and the huge play in the steering. Not to mention a couple specialized tools.

I was able to get everything off reletively simply with the transmisssion removal, until the manual said remove the exhaust, since the v6 pipe crosses under the transmission. Unfortunately all the bolts were ver seized after almost 30 years. A reciprocating saw works really well.

More is to come soon!

Turns out what i thought was a bad slave was actually the clutch wheel its self, as you can see. The kit off ebad I bought also had the needle bearing which was easy to remove and replace with a slide hammer.
