great pictures!! bad news!!

Postby FamousEric » Sun Oct 05, 2008 4:18 pm

so i sold my mountain bike today, shopped around at Fry's and then just decided to come home. my car was all nice and washed so i took it out to the farmland that we have out here in Dixon down Midway. I ended up taking about 300 nothing less than awesome pictures. i was taking off from a stop sign only about a mile from my house and all of the sudden tragedy had taken my dub by suprise. i'm still investigating but from the looks of it, something was loose causing a 3" by 3" piece of aluminum to bust itself off the transmission, also a small ball (probably part of a bearing, made it's way to the ground. fuckin shitty day.

look for my wtb: transmission thread.

nonetheless, here are the pictures. more will come when they finish uploading.

pics are with my new canon rebel xsi, no special settings 18-55 lens

Cross shaft roll pin or rivets broke?,... but that ball bearing could be from your axle...

you're talking foreign to me...i've never dug in to a tranny...let alone a vw.

going through all my paperwork from purchasing the car....finding that i have a certified used vw warranty for 2/24k. this should be covered but i guess i'll find out when i take it in tomorrow.

any dealerships that anyone recommends? as long as it gets done correctly i'm willing to have this thing towed just about anywhere in norcal. (also noted, this will be transmission number 3 for this car)

good news. after investigating today (didn't do it yesterday because i was bummed..), i found that it's only an axle. i ordered one from kragen...and they price matched mjm (for $120).

got her home on a flat bed tow truck :( i was only ONE mile from home and it busted!
