Auto to manual

Hi all newbie oldie here :grin:. Not sure if this has been covered before. Has anyone a link or list of parts required to convert my new project n/a mk1 auto (knackered) to manual gearbox.
Cheers in advance.

Hi and welcome to GTOUK ,

Get some pictures up of your motor , we are suckers for pictures , take it yours is a total loss auto wise ? Some of the stuff will be pretty obvious , clutch pedal , gear shifter linkages gearbox etc , would be easier to buy an n/a manual as a parts car if possible or buy a running n/a manual and swapping your good bits over

It will have been covered in the forum over the years without a doubt

Welcome to GTOUK Andy !

Welcome to the club and good luck with your project.

If the box still has its manual gears ie reverse park neutral you can bypass the ecu and fit paddle shifters, see β€œrusty” in projects and restoration thread.

Once joined as a full member information is available in the the technical sections.

Welcome Dave


Thanks for a kind reception guys. The auto is useless. Bought the car cheap and needs a bit of engine work and hopefully manual box conversion as hate autos :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:. No hurry its a long project just asking if anyone has actually done it.
