Q: Will this gearbox fit?

asked by on

Hi, I need a second hand gearbox for my golf, i've found one which is a 2010 gearbox with 51k miles on it. However, the 2010 sounds like a mk6 gearbox? Its the same code - GQQ and BXE but will it fit?

My car has 180000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Hi there, thanks for writing in.

If the transmission identification code is the same, then it should fit in no problem. The mounting points should line up, and it should work pretty seamlessly. There was a lot of drivetrain carryover between the M5’s and the very early MK6’s, so the similar sound isn’t surprising at all.
