Default auto to manual swap in 2 weeks!!

I am finally about to cross over in to the manual transmission world!!! heidi has been out of commision for a while due to someone who deserves a darwin award for putting 10w 40 oil in my auto tranny, so it took a dump, but it gave me the excuse to take vacation from work to go ahead and do some transmission work!!!!! can't wait.



:skull:

It's not as hard as everyone thinks it is. I'm in the process of doing one right now. It's actually easier than anything you read. The hardest thing...the pedals! They are a pain in the arse. Hit me up if you have questions. BTW - my swap is a Z6 manual into an auto DX hatch. (92-95) Hit me if you need...

I so agree ^ the pedals were so hard to take out. A major pain in the ass. At the end it is all worth it. I did the same swap so if you have any questions let me know.

I have done transmission work on a dodge truck and that was a pita, i think this should not be too hard, but yeah, i can already see the pedal problems.

Godo Luck dude,

I had a dude who knew his stuff and we did the swap in about 5 hours, a little less actually as we did a motor service at the same time.

It's pretty straight forward, I kept in the pedals, and just cut the brake pedal with a angle grinder and fitted the clutch pedal with the clutch master on it's own...........worked a treat....
