would you do it?
Hi everyone! I have dilemma and hope you can help me decide. I use my GTV as a second car and I'm planning to do some spring repairs. There are couple of things that need to be done - I want to get Q2, 1st and 2nd gears are hard to engage (most likely syncromesh) and I think a new clutch would help also. I really enjoy working on the car and had a crazy idea to try to fix those things myself. I have read pretty much all related posts and it sounds like a doable job. However I'm not sure if I have enough skills to do it. So far I have done various stuff on my BMW motorcycle and small things on the GTV. Are there any special tools that I will need in the process? I'm going to be doing that in a garage with a lift. Where can I get parts for the gearbox? Is it just at the dealer? How hard it is to put the gearbox together after I take it apart? What are the things to be careful with? Since I'm not in hurry it's ok if it takes a little longer. If your were me would you do it or better to stay out of trouble and give it to professionals?
