Re: (fcpgroton)

I guess I'm with Jarno in that it shouldn't matter unless it was just senseless hotdogging. The car has an "R" on it for a reason. From all the breakage on this site you would think this angle gear was made of glass. I should not have to worry every time I take a corner hard if my car is going to break.

Re: bad angle gear (Minn R)

Re: (Warpedcow)

I was driving like a grandma actually. I took a right hand turn and all the sudden Bang!!! ( oooohhh F&%* so thats what an angle gear sounds like) I pulled off into a parking lot. Surprisingly my awd still worked. only i would hear a bang about ever 10 feet. I flat bedded it to the shop( Well respected euro indy) . I told him what happened and immediately hes like " ohh no!" He's replaced many spline collars and a couple angle gears. They tore it all apart and said they had never seen anything like it. He said the spline collar was about to go and when they tore apart the angle gear the gears were "ridding up on each other". so.... I need a new angle gear and spline collar kit. He also said the angle gear from the 07 auto would not work. <p>Before it snapped:<br>1. Ive had a whining for about 3000 miles sounded like tire noise <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>2. slop in gear shifts (ruled out axel ping and all mounts)<p>The shops name is Foreign Affairs of Duluth. They are a very well respected shop up here in Duluth and they only work on European cars. The guys seemed very knowledgeable about the R so i it should be in good hands. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Angle Gear.........1660<br>Collar kit.............140<br>Gear oil...............60<br>Labor 5 hours.....500<br>Driving an R.........................................................Expensive!!!!!!!!!!! <IMG SRC="http://media.firevortex.net/icons/custom/green/fv-green-bashhead.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG SRC="http://media.firevortex.net/icons/custom/green/fv-green-bashhead.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: bad angle gear (Minn R)

2 weeks ago, my angle gear bearing or bearings went out at 44K miles, causing a whining-grinding noise from 0-30. Faster speeds did not increase noise. Extended warranty covered new angle gear, but repair costs totaled $2,100. Deductable was $25.
