02M Gearbox Reinforcement Plate
Fits ALL VW / Audi / Seat and Skoda 6 Speed Manual 02M Gearboxes
One weaknesses of the 02M Gearboxes is the cast transmission casing. This can become a major problem especially on vehicles with high torque figures. The problem is caused by high amounts of vibration being transferred through the gears. These vibrations can eventually lead to cracks in the casing and in worst cases, can break away completely leaving a gaping hole in the end of the casing. Usually this destroys all the internals rendering the whole gearbox scrap.
This Reinforcement Plate has been specifically designed from S355 high-strength steel to prevent this from happening
After experiencing this problem first hand with a few of our high powered diesels (including the Arosa) we highly recommend this modification for vehicles running 400ft/lbs+ (for petrol and diesel applications)
