Has anyone put a JLU 6 speed box on a Caddy BLS, also what drive shafts are needed for this, will the MK5 golf ones do?

Thanks

I ask because I have 1.9tdi caddy with a JLU gearbox fitted but the driveshafts are the original caddy ones so I’m getting vibrations in the steering wheel, what I’m trying to find out is if anyone else has fitted this gearbox to a caddy and which drive shafts fit

As I've posted the VAG vehicles that fit JLU gearbox the Caddy isn't listed.

Where someone has fitted a JLU gearbox because they can't find the original gearbox code we don't know.

What year is this Caddy as there are loads of 6 speed manual gearbox codes.

Its no good saying its Caddy 1.9 TDI.

Manufacturer: VW, Date(s) Used: 06/2005-08/2010, Model: Caddy, Engine Code: BLS, 77Kw, 105PS, 1.9 Ltr, 4 Cyls, Remarks: Turbocharged Direct Injection Pumpe Düse (TDI-PD), 8v Timing belt

I don’t think you quite understand what I’m asking here or I’v just not been very clear, I can see caddy isn’t listed on JLU vehicles however a maverick mechanic has mated my 2008 BLS engine to a JLU gearbox, I understand this is not a conventional swap like an O2M box would be however seems to work and wondering if I put the driveshafts from a usual JLU vehicle like say a golf would it cure the vibrations, I’m asking if there is anyone out there who has done the same swap
