Sounds like you have the order right. What is your gap before you add the extra steel, and the gap with the extra steel?

Did you see my post about the two different pistons I tried? That was my iss ...

Sorry to hear about your continued issues man.

I got mine back in last night and drove today. IT SHIFTS. A few funny shifts, but I'm hoping it's working the kinks out (i.e. pumping fluid back into ...

Hi everyone. The Audi washers arrived yesterday, and they are in fact 40mm thick. However as you can see, the ID and OD are slightly different than the VW. I don't think they are different enough to b ...

Did you measure the exact difference between the two direct clutch pistons? It seems like you went from 3.5mm to 2.05mm, so I'm guessing it was a full 1.45mm? I'm asking because I am in the middle o ...

I ordered 2 of the 010323345C part. I'll let you all know what they measure when they get here.

Are they measuring to this bushing?

Going back a few pages. Nobody answered this question. Is this where measurements A should be measuring from?

I will have to look when I get home to see what my exact number was but I know it was in the 1.25-1.64 range that required two 0.4mm shims.

From the way I am reading this I believe if yours measur ...

Couple of quick Q's here.

Not really a question, but I remeasured for shims and I had this wrong too. I don't know how I could have gotten it wrong before, but my measurements last time showed that ...

Right on. Sounds like we're in a similar boat. I'm sure you got the same parts from WIT that I did.

Confused by your comment on the WIT pistons vs. Audi pistons. Maybe my comment wasn't clear, but 2 of the 3 pistons I got from WIT were clearly stamped with the Audi badge on the underside. The only o ...

This is good news.

Before you put that back together, do you want to get a few more good pics of the direct and forward piston so that I might compare them to the stock parts i removed from my Aud ...

My pistons from WIT finally arrived, and they confirmed what I suspected. The pistons I got from eBay were either the wrong parts, or just not of the same quality.

The only one that was identical w ...

I had a clutch plate in the Direct Drum break. I do not believe it was a "stacking issue," but as we have narrowed down here, an issue with the piston for the direct drum. I'm going to order ...

Ah sweet. Glad you have the right part. I have the same 373 B or 373 8 hub. Whichever it is.

Iím not sure what your issue is. Iím running the Audi 4 planet system and it mates up fine. Switching to the Audi 4 planetary system is one the main reasons for this swap, so you shouldnít try to mak ...

Ok. So if Iím reading things correctly, our measurements from the piston are about 2mm off. Our measurements without the piston are similar. This tells me that my piston may be the issue. I might snag ...
