you could with mine. it shifted perfectly before, with absolutely no issues, so if it would work this way on reassembly, i would be just fine with that. the more I look at the parts, the more I think just the 5th gear and mating gear are bad

But, on a scale of 1 to 10, what is the difficulty level of taking apart a transmission on a bench? (5 being a timing belt change)

That's the challenge. I can look at the surface of a new synchro and the surface of a used synchro, and tell the difference, but I can't tell you whether the used synchro is any good or whether it's done.

I still have the broken 5th Gear transmission that really shifted nicely. im sure , it just needs a 5th gear set and maybe while we are in there, replace 3-4th synchros. however, it wont be me that rebuilds this, maybe greg brown? hate to see this transmission just be stuffed in a shed.

anyone know where there can be a used 5th gear for an S4 transmission to be found? Ive heard here are new ones available, but they are $1500 each .

what would the minimum cost be to replace the 5th gear , assuming nothing else needs replacing?
