Video for performing E24 auto to manual trans swap

Post by Flaggie96 » Fri Nov 09, 2018 2:15 pm

I recently executed a transmission swap / conversion for my 1985 euro, and took some amateur video. It had a 4HP-22, now has a 260/6. Here is a link to the video if you need any help doing your swap:

Hi. Just what I was looking for. I suspect it is much easier to get a complete doner car and grab all the bits and pcs which is the course I have taken.
Many thanks for a professional video.

Agreed, also not nearly the disorganization, mess, tools and parts gone missing, sweating and bashed knuckles I'm used to in my garage. :oops:
Also a very nice car. Thxs for posting
