So here's my dilemma. I'm doing a transmission swap for a girl that got a '99 Beetle from a friend of her family. She hit a lane divider a few weeks ago and really messed up the transmission bell housing. I want to swap out the tranny for another one, but the salvage yard up here has a few different types, all manual, all for the 2.0L engine.

Here's my question: Can I swap out this tranny (DZQ) for another one with a different code? I'm seeing a bunch of different ones (EKG; EKH; ECV; EBP) that show they're a 5-speed manual for the 2.0L motor. Can these other ones work? If not, why? What's the difference?

no difference.

any mk4 2.0 trans will work, just make sure if it's out of a 2000+, you swap the shift tower on the trans to the 98-99 style.
