Hi, I have a 2006 Golf mk5 1.6 petrol 5 speed which has now have very strange noises especially on first and second gear. Now I'm planing to change the gearbox. The engine code is BSE and Gearbox code JHV, would any of these alternative gearboxes fit instead?

GVY JHT FVH LVQ or maybe something else?

Many thanks

A Golf Plus then, the JHV was only used in these 2006>2009 and the Leon/Altea/Toledo. I can see the LVQ, GVY and NVU and the NVU was used right up until 2105 in the Altea. The early 0AF was horribly prone to bearing cartridge wear so as late and low mileage as possible but used boxes can be a mugs game as I found out recently.
