    Gearbox codes Golf V (difference between)

    Hi,

    I need to change the gearbox of my golf V 1.9 tdi 105hp 4motion. The code of my gearbox is KDX but, in the workshop, they say that the JLS code is the same.
    Does anyone know if this is correct?

    Thank you.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Thanks a lot Keithuk.

    According to my data sticker my transmission is KDX. But I do not see any difference between both according to the information you have written above. The only difference I can see is that the JLS includes the R32 models.
    So, do you think I can fit a JLS instead of an KDX?

    P.D.: I made my presentation as it should be.

    Different transmission/gearbox codes could mean different gear ratios. Physically these gearboxes should fit.
