1968 – 1979 VW 1600 Transporter Transmission – Dismantling

Do not throw away gaskets when dismantling. They ac as a guide when working out what new ones to use from the gasket set bought. It must be remembered that modifications have been made to the gearbox and continue to be made. It is essential to be very careful when ordering spares that the correct number stamped on the casing is quoted in all instances.

Remove the screws and nuts securing the clutch housing to the gear casing at the front and carefully draw it off over the input shaft. Undo the circlip in part of the reverse gear and sleeve on the input shaft and draw it along the shaft so that the gear and sleeve may be drawn along behind it until it is clear of the splined part. Then unscrew the front section of the shaft which is located in to the other part with a threaded stud.
