Is it possible to swap trans for another one ie from a polo without much modding and if so what would be benefits of doing so or is it just recon original as its better for everyone.

Whats the issue with the GB?

They are usually quite robust, could be the clutch failing or the gear selector bushes are almost a consumable part and when replaced can transform how easy it is to select gears

The trouble with doing nothing is that you never know when you are finished.

Very good site on the 020 gearbox

Welcome to

Other cars with the 020 gearbox
Mk1 Golf, some Mk2 Golfs, some Mk3 Golfs, Mk1 Scirocco, Mk2 Scirocco, Jetta and I think that's all the cars with a 020.

You might want to check the gear ratios of a replacement gearbox, yours is the AUG gearbox, close ratio gearbox fitted to a lot of Mk1 Golf cabriolets
